Should I sign a waiver allowing the insurance company to gain access to my medical records following my Florida car accident?
If you are asked by an insurance company to sign a waiver to get your medical records, it depends upon which insurance company is asking you for it. If it’s your own insurance company, you have an obligation to cooperate with them, and you must sign the waiver. If, however, it is the at-fault party’s insurance adjuster, they may even make it like they’re helping you out by getting your records for you to help you prove your claim. They’re not in it for your best interests. They’re in it to save their employer, the insurance company, money on your claim. So I would advise against signing any medical authorization for the at-fault insurance company, and if you need any legal advice, contact an attorney so you know your options and your rights.
