Have To Sign A Medical Release?
If you get a request from your own auto insurance company about seeing one of their doctors there are certain times that you have attend. If you get a request from the other driver’s insurance company that is usually something that attorneys will advise you not to attend.
No. If you are injured and decide to exercise your right to make a claim, you will need to eventually furnish your doctor's records so a value can be determined. However, signing a medical release gives the insurance company extensive rights to obtain all of your past medical records and even go and talk to your doctor without you being present. Medical information that may be irrelevant, embarrassing and confidential by law can now be obtained. Most lawyers advise against it.
