Why have OnPoint's nurses attend the DME

  • You have a client who is terrified of being examined by a potentially hostile physician.
  • You wish someone could support that client, who definitely does not want to get undressed in front of you or your paralegal.
  • You wonder about the accuracy of the report prepared by the physician examiner.
  • You want to limit the discussion of liability.
  • You need eyes and ears at the exam and a rebuttal witness at trial.

We can help!

Retain us to provide an experienced nurse to attend the defense medical examination (DME) with your client. Their first-hand experience will be valuable when your case comes to settlement or trial.

What you will get in your detailed report:

  • What was said and done by the examiner and plaintiff.
  • Non-verbal behaviors and communication (grimacing, crying, tone of voice).
  • Timing of history and physical.

How an attending nurse helps your client:

The exam can be stressful for your client, and they appreciate the extra attention and support from a caring nurse.

An experienced nurse will be prepared to testify about discrepancies between what occurred in the exam versus what the physician claimed occurred and help you make your case.
