Mistake #8. SIGN A MEDICAL RECORDS AUTHORIZATION

Do not sign one when the other driver's insurance company offers to collect your medical records for you and to provide you with copies at their cost.  They will not start with when your accident occurred.  If they think it will help in their defense, they will go back virtually to your birth.  Nor will they limit their investigation just to body parts injured in the collision.  They will collect whatever you permit them to and will use it all against you.  Protect yourself by NOT signing anything.
