Never sign a release without talking to a lawyer.
These days insurance company representatives love to rush to the scene of an accident, throw around a few bucks and get people to sign a release.
In almost every case when you sign a release the insurance company is off the hook forever, and your legal rights come to a screeching halt.
I have seen innumerable injury cases that looked real small at day one, but over time, became very significant.
Changes in the body don’t always happen right away and sometimes injuries take time to reveal themselves.
The nature and extent of many injuries takes time to understand and appreciate.
Take the time to get good legal advice before it is too late.
And if the insurance company wants you to sign a release that should unleash a barrage of red flags to you.
