PLAINTIFF’S RIGHT TO PRIVACY
In today’s modern social environment, it has become increasingly important to manage one’s personal and private information in order to protect against identity theft, fraud, and the like. As people’s digital footprints grow, so do their concerns about protecting their private information.
People involved in lawsuits, and especially personal injury plaintiffs, are often required to disclose a great deal of personal information, including financial and medical documents, identification information, and background details. However, one’s mere participation in a lawsuit does not automatically waive the right to privacy, and experienced, competent attorneys can assist clients in protecting their personal information.
We work tirelessly and diligently to protect our clients’ rights to keep their personal information private by attempting to keep the scope of discovery limited to only those matters at issue in the case. Other efforts are put forth to impose limitations and restrictions on the handling and use of the private information that must be disclosed. By doing so, we limit the invasiveness of the litigation process by protecting from disclosure as much personal information as possible.
While most clients are not thinking about protecting their personal information when they first call us, we are on the job from day one. We offer free consultations, a warm and inviting office, and a friendly staff to anyone interested in speaking about a potential legal matter with a law firm with over 100 combined years of experience in catastrophic injuries, wrongful death, auto and motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, legal malpractice, premises liability, products liability, elder abuse/nursing home negligence, and Worker’s Compensation claims.
