The Insurance Company Wants Me to Sign a Medical Authorization, Should I Do That?

The attorneys at Zinda Law Group would never recommend that you sign a medical authorization- especially a blanket medical authorization without considering it carefully. An authorization allows the insurance company access to information that they would never be allowed to have otherwise. They can essentially look into your entire medical history. They will have access to different medical records – for example, your herniated disc 9 years ago and try to say that that was a pre-existing condition and that's why you're hurt now- not from the car accident. Instead of giving them time to look over your medical records, you want to call an attorney who can control the flow of information, give them all the relevant information at once, give them deadlines and use what leverage you have by only giving them access to things that are relevant. There is no reason to let them dig into your history to find reasons to deny or delay your claim.
