.Why you don't just sign the releases an insurance company sends you

What to consider before you sign a release of any type information: What the release covers; how long it lasts; what can be done with the information and with whom it may be shared.

Additional resources provided by the author

Most states have a State Insurance Commission or Board that regulates insurance companies. Often the state commission or board will have an advocate that can answer questions about releases for free. You can usually contact an attorney for a free consultation in accident cases. Check your AVVO listings for your area or contact your State Trial Lawyers association for a list of attorneys.
