Re: Legal Question Regarding Records
Comp is entitled to all medical records necessary to expedite your case, you can't hide or cherry pick records that support or damage your claim.
By law is she required to send these documents even though I am being seen by a private doctor under my personal health insurance and not under workers comp?
Not sure of what "looking up settlements" would have to do with your claim.
All claims are unique to the facts of that claim - there are no averages.
Also, I'm confused as to why your attorney is talking settlements on a denied claim, you're no where close to the settlement phase.
It might be a good idea to first determine your injury, win your claim, have a final impairment rating, determine your loss of earning capacity then proceed from there.
