For more information




The complexity of workers’ compensation claims continues to increase. Employers may question the true cause of an employee’s condition, what the best course of treatment is or if malingering or injury exaggeration exists. Considering these challenges, our insurance adjusters may request an independent medical examination (IME) to help determine the next step in the claim management process.

First Choice Evaluations and Nicosia Law will provide an overview of what are IME’s, when would you utilize them and how to ask the right questions to help mitigate claim costs on your workers’ compensation claim. Dr. Martin Gingras will offer additional insight on preparing information to ensure a quality IME. He will also present a further look into the IME from the physicians prospective with a step-by-step mock examination.

Presented by:

Kevin Duncan – First Choice Evaluations

Ed Nicosia – Nicosia Law, P. C.

Dr. Martin Gingras – Genesee Valley Orthopedics
