No. Providing an open medical release to the insurance company merely results in significant breaches of privacy as well as problems with your claim in the future. It’s always important to remember that one of the goals of the insurance company for the other driver is to minimize the value of your claim. They are not trying to help you; they are not trying to help increase the value of your claim; they are not trying to obtain support for the high value of your claim. The Pothitakis Law Firm rarely provides medical releases to insurance companies in pending automobile accident claims. We obtain the medical records ourselves and review them prior to providing them to the insurance company.
