Why do you have to order medical records and bills? April 26, 2008

I hear this question quite often.  It’s ususally followed by, “Why can’t I just go to my doctor’s office and get them.” 

Honestly, you can.  I’ve had clients get their own medical records.  But, I only recommend a client get their own medical records with our help.  Why?  Because we always ask for “certified” medical records. 

Certified medical records are needed if you go to trial.  So, instead of ordering “regular” medical records (and getting charged for them) and then having to order “certified” records later on (and getting charged for them), we just ask for certified records right away.  

Personal injury attorneys pay the costs of these records.  We only get paid back for these costs if we recover compensation for the injured victim.  We don’t charge interest on these costs.

Personal injury law is all I do.  I’ve found this is the best way to make sure we know about your injuries in order to get full compensation AND to streamline your case so this compensation is obtained as soon as possible.
