    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues answers. I would only add the further explanation that whenever you claim an injury, generally, you are placing your physical condition into question and effectively relinquishing any right to privacy concerning medical records related to the injury. In most states, whenever an employer or its workers compensation carrier pays for care relative to a work injury, they are entitled to secure copies of your medical records, by statute, irrespective of whether you sign anything.

    If you were injured at work, I strongly suggest that you secure experienced legal representation to make certain that you know your options and that you receive all benefits to which you are rightly entitled.
