After your injury car wreck, never give your insurance company or an adverse insurance company the authorization to get access to your medical records, until you have the approval of your attorney. Doing so would allow them to gain access to confidential medical records not even relevant to your injuries. It then becomes much easier to blame injuries, caused by their insured, on that old sports injury.

The above scenario and others, including whether one should allow a recorded statement, are prime examples of why one needs an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure a fair recovery after someone else’s negligence has “wrecked” the day.
