What are HIPAA Authorizations?
Florida law provides that all of your medical records are protected by the patient-physician privilege, and even your attorney cannot obtain those records without your written consent. Accordingly, we will ask you to also sign several copies of our pre-drafted HIPAA Authorization, which will enable us to obtain your medical records from all treating physicians, which are absolutely critical to proving your case. The importance of your medical records will be discussed later. Click here for an exemplar of our standard HIPAA Authorization.
