Can Defendants Consult Any Doctors in Your Personal Injury Case?
We have made it to Friday again, and this week’s video will be our last in the series answering your questions about personal injury law. In today’s clip, Roy answers the question of whether or not the defendant can get examined by a doctor of their choosing in your Oregon personal injury case:
As Roy explains in this video, once you file your complaint in Oregon, the defendant can have you examined by a doctor of their choosing. Normally in this process you can provide your medical records to a doctor, who will review them prior to examining you. These doctors are not plaintiff-friendly. They are hired by the defendant and the reports that they will provide will say one of two things: either that you are not in fact injured and that a preexisting condition is to blame or that your injuries are minor.
