An insurance company wants access to my medical records. Should I give them this information?
Insurance companies generally work to access as much information as possible if they believe they may become involved in a lawsuit. This information, often including medical records of a potential claimant, may require the consent of the injured individual first. However, an injured individual has the right to refuse an insurance company’s requests. In most situations, it is unwise for a potential claimant to provide this information freely.
If an insurance company has requested that you provide medical records, it is advisable to consult with a legal advisor regarding your options in moving forward with a lawsuit.
