If you have been injured in a car accident and are dealing with the at-fault driver's insurance company, then chances are the adjuster handling your claim has asked you to sign an Authorization to Release Medical Records. On it's face, it seems like a good idea to go ahead and sign the authorization- You have to get the records and bills anyway, right? Why not let the adjuster do the work for you? The insurance adjuster will make it sound like he needs them to pay you what you are entitled to. Unfortunately, this is far from the real truth of why he wants your medical records.
