Don't Sign Any Forms from the Other Driver's Insurance Company after a Honolulu Car Wreck

Insurance companies are famous for doing whatever they can to minimize, delay and deny injury claims.

After a Honolulu car wreck, one of the common tactics we see from the at-fault driver's insurance company representatives is to ask you (in a very friendly and comforting way) to just sign some paperwork and then they'll take care of everything for you.

Don't fall for this ploy; the insurance company's representatives are not on your side. In fact, they're just fishing for information to use against you.

You have to be extremely careful after a wreck to make sure that you don't make mistakes that can jeopardize or ruin your claim, and one of the biggest mistakes is signing documents from the other party's insurance company.

Some examples of these forms are medical authorization forms, wage information releases, and even full releases. Bottom line -- don't sign anything from the other driver's insurance company. Otherwise, you may inadvertently give the insurance company access to just about everything it needs to undermine and cast doubt on your claim.

For instance, if you sign a medical release form, insurance representatives can attempt to track down medical records from any doctor or medical professional you've seen in the past -- even for conditions or injuries that would have absolutely nothing to do with your current case.
