Civil Rule 35 Examination

Also known as the defense medical exam (DME), allows the Defendant, with good cause, to have a medical expert of their choosing examine and evaluate the Plaintiff’s injuries.  This may also include a psychological evaluation in cases where there is a claim for psychological damages. However, the Plaintiff’s counsel has the ability to set some parameters for how the evaluation will be conducted, and to have an observer present to document what is done and said.
