Do I Need to Sign a Medical Authorization in an Un-Insurance Motorist Claim?

Do I Need to Give The Insurance Company Any Information? No, in many circumstances, you don't need to give the at-fault party's insurance company what they ask for because the law affords you certain protections in terms of privacy; however, it might be to your advantage to do so in some settings in order to establish a working relationship with that carrier.

Dealing With Insurance Companies After An Accident

The insurance company will likely ask for as much information and records as possible. However, giving them some or all of this might later disadvantage your case later at trial. 

Therefore, it is necessary to distinguish between what the policy or claim asks you to give them and what the law requires you to give them. Of course, it is important to build rapport with all parties in the dispute but you should not do this at the expense of your recovery. 

You should work with a qualified attorney so that you only disclose what you have to while preserving every ounce of compensation.

What Is The Insurance Claims Process Like?

In many ways, the insurance claims process looks a lot like a regular lawsuit even if it involves against an uninsured or underinsured driver. Some of the common features include investigation, legal research, records gathering and review, depositions, and other things. However, it is critical to remember that there is still another avenue to recourse if you are not satisfied with the insurance process. 

You can either go to arbitration or file a lawsuit depending upon the state and circumstances. To figure out which is available to you, call our offices. We can help you analyze all routes to recovery to ensure that you get the most compensation possible under the law.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
