A: A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It isn't fully clear what type of matter this involves. But almost universally nationwide, any proceeding that requires verification of an injury, illness, disability, etc. will require supporting medical documentation. This includes doctor's narratives, imaging studies, diagnostic tests, etc. Also needed are HIPAA-compliant medical authorizations. This is to enable retrieval of your medical records with your permission. If you are represented by an attorney, ask them to outline this for you in more detail. Under health care law, you have certain control over information you provide, in terms of your privacy rights. Good luck
