Is it normal to have mandatory mediation if you never had a IME. I got mandatory mediation in like 2 weeks and was wondering if this is out of the norm. My father in-law was hurt on the job and had a IME so I assumed I would have to have one. All I had was an FCE. Been injured since 9/04 in PA. Been out of work for 2 years. Any opinions or help would be great.
