Should I release my medical records to another driver’s insurance adjuster?
Look, if you’re going to handle your claim on your own without an attorney, just know this, well, often times, these releases are very broad. They entitle the insurance company to gather any and all medical records, some of which they’re not entitled to. Additionally, sometimes, there’s provision that allow them to divulge these medical records once they’ve been obtained to third parties. Who are these third parties? Is this the government? Is this another insurance company? Is this some for profit company that wants your records for their own purposes? I don’t know. But I do know that if you’re going to release your medical records, I strongly suggest you consult with an attorney before doing so.
