“Copy and paste” reports are not just for college kids on tight deadlines anymore. Recently, we have noticed that some medical providers are copying and pasting, word-for-word, their causation opinions from unreliable web sources. One such instance was identified by our own attorneys, Robert Greenlaw and Amanda Schwertner, while preparing for a hearing in Weslaco. The “Letter of Causation” provided by an Edinburg chiropractor lifted several large blocks of text—verbatim—from several webpages, two of which were written by two different personal injury attorneys in California. (Both of the lawyers’ websites urge the reader to call their offices for a free consult regarding their claim – Call Now!) This particular chiropractor also lifted several text blocks—verbatim—from the websites www.shimspine.com and www.patient.info. These latter websites warn that the information provided is not medical advice and should not be used for diagnosis or treatment of medical conditions. Moreover, the information fromwww.patient.info is based on UK and European Guidelines, not the US or accepted worker’s compensation guidelines.
