Our medical legal exam, also known as an MLE, is an examination that is carried out by our medical practitioner in order to offer an unbiased appraisal of an individual’s medical condition for the purposes of legal proceedings. The objective of our MLE is to ascertain the nature, severity, and underlying causes of an injury or disability, as well as their connection to a particular occurrence or accident.
Our MLE services are frequently sought by attorneys, insurance companies, or other legal bodies in order to receive a medical opinion on a case that is objective and free from prejudice. The examination is carried out by one of our competent members of Bay Area Orthopedic & Sports Specialists, who then writes a comprehensive report in which they present their findings and comments. In the event of a court process, the report may be presented as evidence.
Our MLEs have the potential to be useful in many different types of legal disputes, including those involving personal injury, worker’s compensation, disability claims, and medical malpractice. That being said, a review of the patient’s medical history, a physical examination, and any further diagnostic tests that are required are often included in the exam by our experts if needed.
