First of all, read it - it probably gives this insurance company to obtain every medical record created in your life time.  That's right - signing that form probably gives the insurance company the right to get your birth records, and every thing else you've every seen a doctor for...

Wait To Share Your Medical Records or Any Other Medical Information With the Other Drive or Their Insurance Company

But, the other driver's insurance wants you to sign a medical authorization or release immediately. Should you do that?

Absolutely not. So don't share your medical records with the insurance company adjuster or with the other driver. There's a time for giving them the medical information about the injuries they caused - but it's not right after the accident!
