If a trucking company's insurance company wants me to sign some papers so I can get medical care, should I sign the papers?

The key is, what do those medical papers say? So, for example, there may be a medical release and authorization in that form that allows them to access all of your medical records. The problem with that is it may ultimately allow them to get records that are unrelated to this accident, and that's really nothing more than a fishing expedition to try to find medical evidence that could be used against you from your past. Generally speaking, we do recommend that you contact an attorney to review that paperwork, and determine what you're actually signing, and advise you as to whether you should sign it.
