After a car accident, you might feel overwhelmed, and you will sign whatever document gets thrown at you just to be over with it all. Yet, you should take a second look before signing a release.
Before signing anything, be sure to contact a personal injury lawyer to ensure your rights are protected. If you sign a release, you may be unable to recover future damages. In some instances, the insurer may offer an early settlement, which may not fully compensate the victim, as he or she may still be unaware of the extent and future costs of their injuries.
