Medical Records Are Key in Personal Injury Cases

Categories: Medical Records

If you’ve had an accident, your insurance company may be asking you to sign a medical release form. This form allows them to have access to all your medical records. Before you sign anything, you should consult with an attorney.

Although we’d all like to think that insurance companies are there to help us in times of need, excessive fraud has forced insurance cmpanies to be diligent in their investigations of all claims. The sad truth about insurance companies is that their goal is to not pay your bills. If you sign a medical release form for your insurance company, the insurance adjusters will gather all your records and scrutinize everything from the physician’s notes to whether or not you have missed any appointments.
