Release Of Medical Records

February 5, 2011 / Category: Frequently Asked Questions

Q. My own insurer wants me to release my family doctor and health records to them. Should I do this?

A. You can release your health records to your own insurer.  When you release this information, it is recommended that you only allow the insurance company to collect your medical information starting from two years prior to the accident.  They are only entitled to relevant information and it is essential that you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who can ensure the insurance company does not take unfair advantage of you by going on a “fishing expedition” of personal and confidential information.
