How To Respond to a Release Document from the Other Party’s Insurance Company

You were in an accident, and the other party’s insurance company has sent you a document to sign which would release the other party for your injuries. You need to be very careful, as this may have huge implications for not only your case, but for your well-being well into the future.

Do not sign the document.

Instead, contact an attorney.  Signing the document would prevent you from being able to seek compensation for your damages.

This may be especially important if you are only recently recovering from the experience.  You may not be aware of the full extent of your injuries.  Signing the document would prevent you from being able to receive compensation for unknown damages such as future pain and suffering.  You need proper legal advice when dealing with this situation.  If you sign the document very early following the accident, you could become helpless when later seeking compensation for currently unknown injuries.
