From the beginning of our partnership, Paoli & Geerhart has aggressively protected our clients’ privacy rights. We made the decision that we would in every case take the time and make the effort to assert and protect the right every injured claimant has to keep private their medical and employment information that is unrelated to the injuries and conditions that are part of their claim.
Insurance companies and their lawyers routinely, in every case, try to get all of our clients’ medical and employment records – and we stop them. We know the law, and we insist the other side follow it.
Two examples happened this year, involving successful court action we took to stop defense attorneys – one a senior trial attorney with the California Attorney General’s Office, and the other a senior trial attorney with a private insurance defense firm, from subpoenaing our clients’ medical records of unrelated conditions.
We have never lost a fight for our clients’ privacy rights
