My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: California.
Okay, I was hurt in a slip-and-fall matter. I was working with the business's thirty party administrators (not the insurance company). The business in which I fell in does not have general liability insurance, but they have a third party that tried to help out their claims and play pretend as an insurance company, giving claim numbers and calling themselves claim's adjusters, etc.
Okay, this thirty party group and I could not come to an agreement, after I had submitted all my medical records and billing to them. This thirty party told me that my statues expires 1 month after the actual statues (a lie basically). However, I was smarter than that and I filed my suit and have had the business served.
Now comes time for discovery with the business' lawyers. Come to find out, I find that this thirty party group (located in a different state) has sent all my medical records to the lawyers. I know this, because the lawyers are trying to get me to sign an authorization for release of medical records with the respective medical facilities that I went to in regards to my injury. I understand that the lawyers are allowed to see medical records and billing pertaining to my case. However, I do not like the fact that my medical records were sent to the lawyers without my authorization and consent. In fact, I stamped each medical record with a "Copy" & "Confidential" stamp.
My dispute is with this thirty party group for their deceptive practices and now come to find out, they are sending my medical records to whomever they choose. Keep in mind, this thirty party group and the lawyers offices have no business relationship at all. These are two different businesses "hired" by the same business. Lastly, I have NOT sent anything over to the lawyers as of yet. And I am well aware of the discovery rules.
Should I file something with the medical board? Contact the attorney general? Contact the district attorney?
