Brave Attorney Challenges a Dishonest IME Doctor

For a personal injury attorney, nothing is more important than pursuing justice and ensuring that victims of negligence receive the compensation they are due. In the case of Attorney Steven Gursten, this pursuit of justice could have major effects on his future and career as a lawyer.

Gursten vs the IME Doctor

Recently, Gursten defended a client whom was injured in a truck accident. Victims in automobile accidents or workers’ compensation cases are given independent medical exams (IME) performed by doctors hired by insurance companies. Many IME doctors can use their position to sacrifice their professional objectivity; unfortunately, in this case the IME doctor did just that.

When Gursten challenged the doctor’s position in the case and wrote a blog that brought forth clear evidence that she had committed perjury, the doctor filed a grievance and demanded that the post be removed. His response? To write another post, clearly highlighting the injustices he was witnessing. Gursten is now laying his career on the line (since the doctor is also a member of the Attorney Discipline Board) in order to show the world how an IME doctor could exploit their position in an injury case.

Why Is This Important?

It is sad to say that it is common to see insurance companies and their employees use tactics that limit the amount of compensation victims in injury cases can retain. By challenging the doctor involved in his case, Gursten is bringing to light these injustices within the system. His actions are not only incredibly brave, they also allow open up possibilities for other attorneys to fight unfair tactics used by insurance companies.
