I was hurt on the job in 2006, and I have not worked since. I received a settlement from work comp, about a year ago. I receive S.S.D.I, because I can’t work at this time, because of my back and head injuries also mental issues.
I also have a third party case against the company that was the cause of my injuries, now the ball is rolling. I signed papers for the release of medical records, to the parties in concern; I have been to a deposition from apposing council, about two months ago.
My question is why my attorney sent me a form from HIPAA medical authorization form to sign, with no dates of limitation or nothing but to just sign? I don’t know what to do. My point is I went to work one day and woke up in the hospital, but now it seems nothing is making sense to me. Why is my attorney sending this form when everyone should have all they need?
