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.
A Tennessee traffic accident can bring life as you know it to a halt, at least temporarily. While your focus may be on your recovery from your injuries and getting your family back on track, you will not be able to help worrying about the bills, car repairs and medical expenses piling up while you are out of work. You are really counting on the insurance claim to help your family through the tough times.
