Providing Medical Information to Insurance Companies after a Car Accident

When someone sustains an injury in a car accident, they may be contacted shortly after the accident by the insurance company representing the person at fault for the accident. This is a relatively standard practice that is often used as a way to gather information about a potential personal injury claimant before they file a claim. If a person agrees to provide this information, often including medical records, without considering how it may damage their legal options in the future, they may find their claim for compensation more difficult.

If you’ve been injured in an auto accident because of someone else’s negligent actions, we may be able to help you with the process of filing for financial compensation. To learn more about what pitfalls to avoid and how an attorney can help you prepare for your case, contact a Denver accident lawyer from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today at (303) 423-1770.

Interacting with Insurance Companies after an Injury

A person should think carefully about the information they may hand over to an insurance company before they do so. Providing sensitive information, like medical records, can give an insurer the opportunity to look for any possible preexisting injuries or disabilities to link a car accident injury to, potentially harming their claim. As such, a person may want to avoid providing information in the following situations:

  • If insurers ask for unlimited access to medical information or documents
  • If insurers ask for a full account regarding any preexisting injuries or conditions
  • If insurers ask for a recounting of the accident, including details on injuries or medical care

Instead of providing this information, a person should consider contacting a legal professional who can provide advice on what to do. This can keep an injured individual from damaging a possible injury claim later.
