I recently injured myself while at work (compound fracture of right lower leg) which required immediate surgery. I now find out that I will be out of work for at least three months and probably longer.
My question is: The insurance company wants me to sign a medical release form that or should I say a release form that virtually gives them premission to go into every part of my past life both medically and otherwise to collect any and all information they feel like.
This does not sound right to me. The workman's comp insurance company just shouldn't be able to pry into every aspect of my life like that should they?
I would understand if they wanted all information concerning this particular incident but to givi them premission to look at anything that they want to seems somewhat over reaching to me.
Maybe I am just being paranoid but I do need to look out for my own best interest.
I appreciate any advice you might be able to provide me.
