Confidentiality Agreements in Injury Cases

August 30, 2016

Video from Indiana personal injury attorney Dave Farnbauch on confidentiality agreements in injury cases.   The video talks about what confidentiality agreements are and how they work in cases including personal injury and medical malpractice cases.  

A confidentiality agreement asks that the matter remain hush hush between the parties and that you don't disclose anything.  The details are not shared with anyone else including other lawyers and you cant publish anything in a newspaper.

Insurance companies are pushing these confidentiality agreements because they dont want info out in the public about what kind of settlements they are paying out or who is causing harm.

A lot of times a client will sign the agreement because its contingent on them receiving a settlement. You should always consult a lawyer before signing a confidentiality agreement.
