Accident victims often deposit an insurance claim check or sign an insurance release thinking they are just giving their approval to have their vehicle repaired or replaced. Unfortunately, cashing/depositing an insurance check or signing a release of liability for property damage can prevent or limit how much money you receive for your injury claim. Money for items such as medical bills, lost wages, and even pain and suffering can be limited in this situation.
Not having an experienced lawyer review an insurance check or release before you sign it can prevent you from making an injury claim for more money. Be smart about the way you handle it. Have a trusted lawyer review any insurance check or release before you sign it.
