Can I file suit for release of my medical records I didn't authorize?
Asked Jan 10, 2008, 09:29 PM
I just found out yesterday that my entire chart of my medical records was copied and sent to an auto insurance company for the other party that hit me last year. They are attempting to settle with me and told me that it has taken so long because they were sent 70 pages of my medical records. I only signed a release for medical records pertaining to my auto accident treatments. I found out because the insurance adjuster told me things about my medical history that is totally unrelated to the accident. Is there a possibility to file suit against the Doctor's office that released all my records, most likely not on purpose, just didn't take the time to read the release and got stupid and sent them ALL. If I can file suit, how do I find an attorney who will take a case like this? So, far all I have located are lawyers for accidental death and malpractice.
Thanks for helping!
