There is no requirement that plaintiffs produce x-rays at a defense medical exam. However, if the plaintiff has been recently x-rayed and the x-rays are helpful in showing the severity of the injury (i.e., fracture or torn ligament or tendon), then there is no need to have the plaintiff x-rayed again. If the x-rays are more than six months old, the defense physician may take another x-ray, so nothing is gained by producing the x-ray at the defense medical exam.
If the x-rays are not helpful to the case, then the answer is simple—don’t bring them. The general rule is that the plaintiff should not bring x-rays to a defense medical exam unless they are recent (i.e., less than six months old) and helpful in showing the severity of the injury.
