well as the legal community.
An important function of IME’s is to identify malingerers whose abuse
of the "system" ends up costing all of us more money in the form
of higher insurance premiums.
A second function of the IME is to independently review the merits of
potential litigation cases. Dr. Souviron
is called upon to evaluate damages and determine permanence or lack there
of. Cases without merit choke the courts and again cost the community as
well as the principals involved, time and expense.
A third function of the IME is to assure appropriate determination of
disability from trauma and or malpractice, as insurance payments and jury
awards are linked to damages. Dr. Souviron has provided invaluable expertise
to Defense firms in cases of disability for the dental practitioner. He also
has reviewed cases for the State involving dental Medicaid/Medicare fraud.
