Most courts and insurance companies now operate by means of electronic filing and communication. In order to properly and adequately represent each client, it is necessary for the Firm to collect personal information, and from time to time “share” that information with the court, an insurance company and/or other attorneys involved in filing and pursuit of any claim for benefits or damages. Such information may include your physical address, email address, phone number, date of birth, social security number and information regarding all medical treatment you have received. Medical information is subject to further protection pursuant Federal Law (HIPPA). All information is collected and stored electronically.
The Firm will only utilize any information collected for the actions necessary to pursue the claim for which you have retained our services. We do not share or sell any information to any Third Party, outside vendor, nor with any entity not directly involved or necessary for the pursuit of your claim.
Our Web site has been designed and is periodically updated by an outside vendor (currently Findlaw.com). Our electronic services and equipment is/are maintained by a different outside vendor (currently Ergo-it.com). Any information to which they have access is limited to that which is necessary for them to enable the Firm to conduct out practice, and pursue your claim. They have not been granted the right to utilize any client information for any reason.
After your claim has concluded and/or we cease to provide legal services on your behalf for any reason, we may destroy and/or discard all “paper” data and records to ensure your privacy and protection. Electronic data may remain stored subject to the terms and requirements of Pennsylvania or Federal Law.
