The Panel QME Process

What is a QME panel & how does it work?

If you have gone through the strenuous process of filing for workers' comp and have received your qualified medical evaluation, it can be extremely discouraging to hear that the doctor does not think your injuries are severe enough to pay for the amount of benefits you need. When this happens, you can request a QME panel to obtain an independent medical-legal report. Workers' comp insurance companies can also request a QME panel if they disagree with the findings of the treating doctor.

Whatever the situation may be, it is always important to have the legal counsel of an Oakland workers' comp attorney during this process.

Designed with You in Mind

The QME process was designed to protect you, the injured worker, from insurance companies who would try to send you to a doctor with whom they had a relationship. When your attorney notifies the state that you need a QME panel, the state will generate a list of three doctors in your area who practice in the medical field that you need. When you receive the list, you can select a doctor and make an appointment for a medical examination.

Legal Support for Your QME Panel in Oakland, CA

The problem that arises the QME panel is ironically related to the same reason that it was created: the random process of selection results in varied results. Some of the doctors that show up in a QME panel are employer-oriented and others are not, and some are familiar with workers' compensation law while others are not.

The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand is extensively familiar with this process and the doctors that are in Oakland and the surrounding areas. An attorney at the firm will provide you with strong legal representation so that you can have the fairest QME report possible, and the firm can advise you of your options while they are available.
