Recently our firm has seen clients come in with paperwork after the automobile accident. A few clients have stated that the other driver’s insurance company has tried to settle with them before they are even done treating for their injuries. If this has happened to you, you should think twice before signing a release.
Once a release is signed, your legal claim against the other driver could be lost. This is an issue if you are still treating because you might still have medical bills, lost wages, or other unforeseen injuries. It is always a good idea to have an attorney review your case before signing any release from an insurance company.
