A: As to the auto policy, you probably have no cause of action since you have no damages at this time. Unless it is provable it hurt your credit rating or something, there is no case. You could file a Declaratory Judgment action to get your name off, but you should just call the Carrier and complain. On the Medical Records there may be a HIPPA violation which you will need alot of proof, and damages.
