Workers compensation

Yes, your lawyer will want to gather all of your medical records. Generally you will provide a HIPPA release form and an oral history. There is a fee to request the records which is often quite high, but most attorney handle these cases contingent, meaning they advance you costs. A good lawyer will then review the records and see if anything was missed in the oral history (most people forget parts of their treatment). The insurance company will be reviewing these records to poke holes, so you want you attorney to have as much advance knowledge as possible. Good luck.
