A: Insurance companies will likely be very reluctant to share information regarding what injuries other parties to the accident have suffered, as any information they receive is likely protected by HIPPA, and their dissemination of another person's health information could result in liability to the insurance company. There are ways for experienced Personal Injury attorneys to obtain these records for you.
