Don’t Sign It! – Medical Authorizations
For the first topic in a series that we will call “Don’t Sign It!”, we will focus on medical authorizations. You may be asking what is the harm in signing a medical authorization from your insurance company or the defendant’s insurance company after a car accident. The answer is, a lot! You will be giving the insurance company unlimited access to your medical history, many times including treatment for psychological disorders, therapy and counseling, sexual history and all other private and personal information. Much of this is irrelevant to your car accident case and the insurance company may try to use it against you. There are circumstances where it may be necessary to sign these. But if you don’t have an attorney, at least consult with one before signing any medical authorizations.
