Q: IME Dr demanded that my friend take off his PPE as a condition of continuing his IME.
When he refused, Dr cancelled rest of IME. Defendants have issued evidence sanctions even though they have all of my friend's medical records and the nature of his injuries are not ones that would even be visible without any PPE. What are his options? Can he sue the IME Doctor for Malpractice and Professional Negligence?
MORE INFO NEEDED.
IF HE HAD AN IME EXAM, THE CASE IS IN LITIGATION AND HE SHOULD HAVE A LAWYER.
THAT IS THE PERSON THAT SHOULD ANSWER THE QUESTION AS S/HE HAS ALL THE INFO
YOU CAN ALWAYS SUE ANYONE AT ANY TIME.
THE ISSUE IS THAT LAWYERS WILL NOT TAKE THE CASE ON A CONTINGENCY AND IT WOULD BE VERY EXPENSIVE TO PURSUE ON AN HOURLY.
