The insurance company has told me to sign a HIPPA release form. Should I sign it?

HIPAA

Avoid signing anything!

The adjuster will likely ask for permission to access your medical records. Do not be fooled by this request. You are not legally required to sign the medical release form. Doing so will probably allow them to access information that they may use against you to settle on a lower payout. It also shows the adjuster that you do not know your rights and that you can be taken advantage of! Protect your rights! Do not sign the medical release form!

Another powerful way to protect your rights is by contacting an experienced personal injury attorney as an attorney can provide you legal advice and steer you away from pitfalls that hurt your case.
