>Does The Insurance Company Have The Right To Obtain My Medical Records?

>Generally, yes. Once you put your physical condition at issue whether by filing a workers’ comp claim, a personal injury lawsuit or a medical malpractice claim, your medical records are fair game. You lose any right to privacy because the insurance companies and their attorney have the right to determine what conditions you may have had prior to the claim- so they can sort out what is related to what.

Likewise, you may be videotaped in public places by surveillance companies hired by the insurer. They are not permitted on your property, but they can sit on your street (usually they are very discreet, tinted windows, etc) and follow you to the grocery store or any other public place, to see if you are doing anything outside of your physical restrictions that may be inconsistent with your injury.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have about these topics.
