One of the most popular tactics used by insurance adjusters after you've been in an accident is asking for medical release forms. Why is this done?
When making an injury claim on your own, the adverse insurance adjuster will often ask you to sign a blank medical authorization, which they can then use to get all kinds of current and prior medical records, many of which have no bearing on, and are unrelated to, your injury claim and injury related treatment.
They may also use a single authorization to procure additional records from other providers without even consulting you.
When you are represented by an attorney, your attorney will help monitor, regulate, and control what medical records are provided to the adjuster, ensuring that only records relevant to the adjuster’s evaluation of your claim are provided.
This is why it's crucial to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer after you've been in a car crash. There are many complex issues that may arise from being involved in one.
Having no experience in handling a car crash on your own can really impact your claim in a negative manner.
Having the right lawyer will make all the difference in your case. Get facts. Stop guessing.
