Establishing the Facts
A Medical/Pharmacy Canvass is research to detect pre-existing illnesses or injuries relating to Workers’ Compensation claims. Through investigative techniques, RJN can identify hospitals, specific primary care physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, diagnostic centers, and pharmacies where a subject may have been treated. On litigated claims and upon approval, our office can then promptly prepare and serve WCAB subpoenas on the identified record-holding locations.
This service provides an accurate account of where information will be available in reference to previous injuries or illnesses and can help determine if the Claimant received medical treatment prior to the date of loss. It can verify the alleged injuries are not those for which the Claimant previously sought treatment, and help to assess whether the reported injuries occurred outside the course of employment.
