What Are My Rights Regarding Medical Records?

Evidence provides the foundation for every legal claim, and you cannot be successful without it. That concept may sound obvious, but it is also critically important you remember it and internalize it. Recovering fair compensation requires proving the full extent of your injuries with verifiable medical evidence. If you have any questions about medical evidence, or how it is used in Kansas injury claims, please contact an experienced Wichita personal injury attorney.

The Importance of Medical Records

The Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) gives you the legal right to have access to your medical records. Your medical records will be the key to your personal injury claim. Your records will include a variety of important personal medical information, such as:

Doctor’s charts

Doctor’s notes, observations and diagnoses
Results of medical tests
Detailed history of treatment and appointments
Billing records
Your records will provide extensive documentation as to your injuries and the treatment you received. Ultimately, collecting complete compensation for your damages will depend on your ability to prove the existence and severity of your injuries. Once you prove that another party’s negligence caused your injuries, you can still only collect compensation to the extent that you can prove that you suffered damage. Your medical records are the most important evidence that you have. A detailed history of your treatment and your progress can make it possible for you to get all of the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled.

Paying For Uninsured And Underinsured Motorist Insurance

Having auto insurance can be reassuring, and is also a requirement under the law for those operating vehicles on streets and highways in Kansas. Failure to have the required auto insurance can lead to a suspension or revocation of a driver’s license, fines, and even jail time. Despite these penalties, there are many drivers who fail to get auto insurance. When an insured driver gets into an accident with an uninsured or underinsured negligent driver, it may mean that the insured driver has to shoulder the cost of the accident.

What Is The Difference Between Them?

An uninsured driver is one who carries no liability insurance on their vehicle; an underinsured driver is one whose insurance would not cover the property damage and medical expenses that result from an accident. Drivers in Kansas are required to carry uninsured and underinsured motorist insurance equal to the amount of liability coverage that they have on their vehicles. This means that drivers need to have coverage at a minimum of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. When drivers who carry uninsured or underinsured insurance get into an accident and discover the other driver has no insurance or is underinsured, they make a claim to their own insurance company for compensation.

The $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident figures are minimum coverage limits, and drivers may pay more in premiums to secure higher coverage limits; indeed, a driver may choose to carry uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance with a $100,000 per accident limit. If the driver gets in an accident with an uninsured driver, the former’s insurance policy would cover all costs up to $100,000 per accident, and if a driver is underinsured, the policy would bridge the gap between the underinsured driver’s insurance and the injured driver’s costs.

Drivers should note that lacking auto insurance alone does not mean that a driver involved in a car accident will be found negligent. The lack of insurance rarely has a bearing on the negligence or cause of an auto accident.

We Can Assist You With Your Case

Talking to insurance companies after a car accident can be stressful. You may not be certain of what to say to the insurance company, and the insurance representative may attempt to make you admit to certain things that reduce their liability. Before agreeing to any settlements from the insurance company, or making any statements beyond reporting the accident, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney. Contact the experienced car accident attorneys of the Wall Huntington Law Firm in Wichita, Kansas, by calling 316-265-6000.
