Use of Medical Records in Indiana Personal Injury Cases

Medical records are an important part of any personal injury or medical malpractice case.  They are often a good indication of what type of injury and medical treatment that you have received from that particular accident or injury.

Medical records consist of many things, such as doctor notes, test results, patient comments, x-rays, prescriptions and other similar things.  It is very important for patients to be candid and open with their doctors about their condition.  When the patient has pain or discomfort, it is important to tell the doctor.  Likewise, when the pain or discomfort lessens or stops, it is important to tell your doctor.  Correct, fair and honest medical records are very important, because the insurance company and defense attorney may try to use your medical records against you.
