As your lawyers, when the insurance company requests medical records, we will make sure that they only get the medical records that relate to your injuries sustained in the accident.
It is always best to allow us and my team to gather all the records and make sure everything looks the way it should and that the insurance company does not get any records that it’s not entitled to.
Once I’ve hired you and we are dealing with the request of medical records, can they subpoena the records and do we have to comply?
No. There is no reason for them to subpoena the records because we are not in a court and they have no authority to subpoena the records. If it is related to the injuries, yes, they should get that information, but not by subpoena because most judges will not allow that.
