How we do it

review the Medical records

Prior to accompanying a client on an IME, our trained advocates review the medical records, so they are most informed for your client. With this information, we are better suited to guide your client through the exam by having an understanding of what happened to them and the treatment that followed. We note dates, doctor names, injuries, and procedures, as well as any priors that might be relevant.

Attend the Examination

We accompany your client from the moment they step into the office to check in with the receptionist until they leave the scheduled location when the exam is complete. During this time, our trained advocates keep a close eye on all tests performed by the IME physician. Were measurements taken with any devices? Did the doctor rush through the exam? Did they attempt to push your client further than they are capable of? Did they take time to ask about daily limitations and lifestyle changes?  All of this information is vital to the final report. 

Draft An Observational Report

Our advocates provide you with a report that details all that took place during the exam including the doctor’s demeanor, the client’s demeanor, a description of the exam location, questions asked, answers given, and most importantly, the time the doctor spends interviewing and physically examining your client.

Consult with your client before the exam

We contact your client 24-48 hours prior to the scheduled exam time to introduce ourselves and explain to them what they can expect on exam day.

Take detailed notes of all that takes place

Our trained advocates know what to look for, and most importantly, how to take note of it fast, so that you have all the information included in the final report. It will be as though you witnessed the exam yourself.

Prevent your client from answering certain questions

TTS will stop your client from answering any unrelated questions the doctor asks such as about priors and other information that is unrelated to their current injuries.

Prevent IME doctor misconduct

We know that the doctors' focus is on the injuries while the attorneys' focus is on the facts surrounding the incident, but does your client? We prevent the doctor from conducting a second EBT.

Sample TTS DME Attendance Reports By Specialty

"The defense insurance company's physician testified that he evaluated my client for 90 minutes. I was able to refute his testimony with the observational report provided by Total Trial Solutions to show the jury the exam lasted just 11 minutes."
