According to published reports, Medicare recipients in Arizona have the opportunity to take part in a pilot program that allows their medical history to be kept online.
As personal injury lawyers in Arizona we often help clients overcome the inaccuracies in many medical records. Medical records in personal injury cases are often one of the most important pieces of evidence. Unfortunately, for car accident lawyers in Phoenix, Arizona and throughout the state, we see far too many people injured in car accidents who are stuck trying to explain away medical records that are either completely inaccurate or so incomplete as to raise questions about the injury they suffered.
With this new program, patients will have apparent control over their medical records. This will give injured people the opportunity to review medical records online and make sure they are accurate and take any necessary steps prior to filing a personal injury lawsuit in Arizona.
While this will not completely solve the problem of inaccurate medical records for automobile accident injury victims in Phoenix, it will help some injury victims take more control to increase the chances that justice is served for the innocently injured victims in Arizona.
Determining whether to bring a personal injury lawsuit after a serious injury can be complicated. Questions regarding how to keep medical records – online or elsewhere – or to keep them in the possession of the doctor’s office or medical provider can feel tricky. Also, finding the best personal injury lawyer to fit your case and your needs can be overwhelming. For those that want answers from a lawyer certified as a specialist in personal injury and wrongful death law by the state bar of Arizona, we invite you to ask us any questions you have about a possible injury claim, medical records, or any other related matter. After you have the information you need, you will be in the best position to make the right choice for you and your family.
