What Is An AME?

Agreed Medical Examination (AME) for Benefits

When you are injured on the job, there is a process which you must go through to file for benefits. One step of the process for a workers' compensation claim is to be examined by an approved physician. During this examination, the physician will make notes of both your injuries and state of disability, if there is one. This information goes into your medical record and is an essential part of securing benefits or a disability rating. At Alvandi Law Group, P.C., our Orange County workers' compensation attorneys can help you navigate the process and prepare for the AME.


There is a special process involved in choosing the medical evaluator so that there is no bias. You will need to agree with the insurance claim administrator on a doctor, which a skilled attorney can help with. Otherwise, the Division of Workers' Compensation Medical Unit may be involved in this selection. The outcome of the AME (agreed medical examination) and your physician's notes will have a significant impact on your case.

The purpose of an AME includes the following:

  • Establishing a medical opinion on any existing treatment needed
  • Determining whether future medical treatment will be needed.
  • Providing a professional medical opinion on any relevant issues
  • Establishing whether there is a permanent impairment or disability


Our experienced Orange County workers' compensation lawyers have represented injured workers for more than a decade. We are dedicated to working with you to help you recover the benefits you deserve. If you are concerned about your upcoming AME and need our assistance, we would be happy to answer any questions you have.
