Physical Examination

During the lawsuit process, the defendant is entitled to request that you, as the plaintiff, submit to a physical examination by a doctor of his or her choosing. This examination will be in regard to the injuries you’re claiming. The defendant will appoint a doctor, and you must attend. If you do not attend, the Court can order you to pay for the missed appointment. The Court can even dismiss your case, which means you will never recover any money. Don't let this happen – contact our New York City personal injury firm to properly prepare for this stage of the lawsuit process.

The doctor is not examining you to help your medical condition. Rather, he or she will be looking for reasons that can be used to testify AGAINST you. So tell the truth and be cooperative, but do not discuss the details of the accident. Leave all accident-related discussions to our team at Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C.

It is sufficient for you to say, for example, “I fell,” or “I was a driver or passenger in a car accident.” Most times, the doctor has already been provided with a copy of your examination before trial testimony, your bill of particulars, or a synopsis of your accident by the defendant’s attorneys, so the doctor knows all about the happening of your accident.

At this time, it is imperative that you reveal ALL your physical and mental problems relating to the injuries you suffered in the accident. If you omit one of the injuries from the accident, the doctor will not include it in his report to the insurance company and this may lessen the value of your case.

If you have a problem at the doctor’s office or with the doctor, call us immediately from the doctor's office. Medical appointments of this nature are always on weekdays during working hours, and if there is a problem, we are here to help you.

We can be reached at (855) 295-4737. Do not leave the doctor’s office.
