Qualified Medical Evaluations
What Is a QME?
A qualified medical evaluator, or QME, is a physician who is specially qualified to provide medical-legal evaluations of a worker's job-related injuries. When an employee is involved in an accident on the job, their workplace injury could fall under a number of different categories that require different compensation.

Different Kinds of QME Injury Evaluations
QMEs are trained to evaluate a number of different injury situations. Some of the more difficult injuries to evaluate are injuries to the psyche. When a person is emotionally traumatized by an event such as sexual harassment, workplace violence, a workplace robbery, etc., the necessary compensation can be difficult to determine. This is another reason why it is vital to have a competent workers' comp lawyer on your side. Other QME-evaluated injuries include head injuries, spine injuries, chronic pain, depression, and anxiety caused by workplace injuries. With their special training, a QME is supposed to provide a fair and unbiased assessment of your injury and help you determine exactly what your compensation should be.
