Independent Medical Examination

Medical examination of a claimant usually requested by another party (i.e., the respondent in the case or a Workers' Compensation Commissioner) and conducted by a physician other than the claimant's attending physician.

Informal Disfigurement Evaluation

Workers' Compensation Commission Form 47 used by a Workers' Compensation Commissioner to award disfigurement or scarring benefits to an employee with a compensable work-related injury or occupational disease.

Informal Hearing

Short informal meeting between the parties in a workers' compensation case and presided over by a Workers' Compensation Commissioner for the purpose of resolving differences, disagreements, and the like in order to provide appropriate workers' compensation benefits to a claimant. Held in a Workers' Compensation Commission District Office, an Informal Hearing is the first level of hearing available to adverse parties in a workers' compensation case and involves discussion of any disputed issue(s) and production of appropriate supporting documents and other evidence. A workers' compensation case may include one or more Informal Hearing(s); cases in which no resolution of disputed issues occurs are recommended for Formal Hearings. However, nearly all cases involving disputed issues are resolved in Informal Hearings.

Informal Hearing Request

Workers' Compensation Commission form used by any party requesting an Informal Hearing before a Workers' Compensation Commissioner.
