#5 MISTAKE: Signing a medical authorization release for the other driver’s insurance company

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, the adjuster from the at fault insurance company often will ask for an authorization to get your medical records. They will tell you it’s needed to process your claim. Tell them you are happy to sign one, when you’re done treating. Don’t let them talk you into signing a release before you’re fully recovered.
