New Auto Insurance Law Requires Nevadans to Turnover Medical Records After Accidents

New Auto Insurance Law Requires Nevadans to Turnover Medical Records After Accidents

Nevada Senate Bill No. 435 requires people injured in car crash to turnover all of their medical information to the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company. 

If you do not agree to turnover all of your medical information, then the auto insurance company will not provide the policy limits that cover the damages. 

The Legislative Counsel’s digest Section 4 writes that an injured victim is required to provide the auto insurance company a written authorization to receive all medical reports, records and bills concerning the claim from the injured person’s providers of health care.

If you are hurt in a crash and it is not your fault, do you really want to give the auto insurance company all of your medical records from your primary care physician? Do you want your privacy invaded by an auto insurance company, because someone else hurt you in a crash? 

At our law firm we can protect your privacy and civil injury rights if this happens to you. When someone doesn’t want to give all of their medical information to an auto insurance company, then the auto insurance company will not provide the coverages. 

It’s up to your attorney to find a company that can look into the insurance company database to find the coverages for a fee. This cost ultimately is paid for by the consumer when the case settles.  

The solution is to ensure your injury attorney provides a medical authorization that limits the ability for the auto insurance to snoop into your medical history. Remember, the insurance companies are like the police, anything you say or do will be used against you.
