Should I Give ICBC Access to my Medical Records?
When you deal with a motor vehicle accident with ICBC you are required to provide a statement. A statement of what happened in the accident, but you are not required to sign it.Another document which you don’t have to sign is consent to give ICBC access to your medical records.
You may think asking for access to your medical records is a reasonable request, but ICBC isn’t looking out for your best interest. They are wanting to find information about your previous health. Your previous health doesn’t have anything to do with the injuries you incurred from your accident. Thus, we strongly advise you don’t give ICBC access to your medical records.
ICBC is trying to find a way to minimize their loss and minimize your claim. To protect yourself, you should hire a Tell Del lawyer. This way your lawyer can review everything before it’s provided to ICBC. This way ICBC is only given information they are entitled to. If they are not entitled to it, they shouldn’t have it. It is as simple as that. The Tell Del xteam looks out for your best interest.
