Red face copy of my file and there is wrong info in it from their DR!

Has any one gotten a copy of there file and found wrong information in it?

Should I have this corrected? How would I do it? Should I call my attorney and let him handle it?

Their Physc Dr has me killing a child with my car and some graphic details. The accident did include a child but no one was killed. Nothing really graphic happened either.

The accident was very traumatic for me the first time around and now to see that their Dr has me killing a child....oh my...I am outraged and living threw it all over again and can not get it off my mind.

This accident was NOT my fault! The Dr doesn't say it was my fault but when others read this they will think OMG!

I do have PTSD from this accident.

Thanks, Cindy

I would let it go. The worst the information is the better it is for your case. My psychiatrist wrote a letter that made it sound like I should be locked up in the psych ward. I got SSDI immediatly save for the standard 5 month wait.

The death of a child would not benefit you in anyway. Someone might decide you need to be in jail so you really do not want such damaging information in your files for the rest of your life...call your attorney and tell him all this information and let him handle it.

Thanks for your replies.
When I first hired my attorney he asked me if I ever had any car accidents.
I told him yes just the one and gave him all the details he said it's no big deal as the accident wasn't my fault per the police report and insurance company.
It just amazes me that a medical professional that is to pay attention to detail really messed up my file. Let alone he also said I was pacing back and forth in his office....HELLO...I can not hardly walk let alone pace!

Hi,

I just wanted to let you know that you can either write to your physician to explain and have the information corrected, or add a note of yours to your medical record for clarification. This is a federal HIPAA regulation, so they have to allow you to do this, if you want to.
