After a bike accident, should I sign a medical authorization form for the insurance company?

In most cases, you should not sign anything that the insurance company gives you before discussing it with your attorney, especially in serious injury cases. You are not legally bound to give the insurance company any information regarding your case. You should keep in mind that the negligent driver’s insurance company has one goal in mind: to minimize what they have to pay you to settle your claim. Anything you say to them or authorize them to seek on your behalf will be used against you.

At our law firm, we deal with both insurance companies so that you can focus on your recovery, not your claim. For more information or to discuss your personal injury claim, contact a personal injury attorney at the Elk Grove-based O'Brien & Zehnder Law Firm today.
