I was in a car accident in Aug 2011 while in Vegas. I suffered a broken wrist and continue to experience pain due to tenosivities. My bills totaled out to $22k including multiple ortho visits, Xrays, MRI's, PT, etc. I initially demanded $50k due to bills, pain and suffering and lost wages. The liable insured only had a $15k limit of coverage in CA. I have since been paid that amount but I had to file an underinsured claim with my own personal insurance company. My insured has requested that I return a release for medical records, however their form does not include a date to which it expires. It also gives them authorization to access more then what is pertinent to this claim. I have decided to revise their form to only provide medical records and bills from Aug2011 to now with expiration.
