Should I Sign the Confidential Medical Records Release That the Claims Adjuster Sent Me?

It would be easiest to say that cooperating with the insurance company's claims adjuster will help get your accident claim settled the quickest and the fairest but that isn't necessarily the case.  Keep in mind that the adjuster's main job is to limit the amount of money that the insurance company has to pay out on claims including yours, so they may not be so concerned with fairness to you as you might hope or expect.  If you sign a release authorizing your doctors and any other health care provider to provide your medical records to the adjuster, you are authorizing release of all your records, which may or may not be complete or accurate.  So what you probably or may  want to do is get your pertinent records yourself and give them to the provider yourself.
