What should I do if an insurance company requests a statement or medical records?
When they consider it a possibility that someone may become involved in a lawsuit in connection with an injury, insurance companies will typically seek to obtain any information they can from the injured party. This information can include statements given by you personally or access to your medical records.
While it may seem as if the insurance company is looking out for your best interest, it’s important to remember that they are a business with the ultimate goal of holding on to as much money as possible as they pay claims for which they are responsible.
The fact that an insurance company is seeking such information from you is a good indicator that you have a potential lawsuit. Before volunteering any information requested, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer to insure your rights and best interests are protected.
