After being involved in a car wreck, the insurance adjuster will attempt to get you to sign a release. However, many people don’t understand that this puts an end to their case. Once the release is signed and you have received your check from the insurance company, the case is closed. Sometimes an insurance company will want you to sign a release as to the property damage claim only. This release will not jeopardize your injury claim but make sure the release is only for property damage.
Some people may not want to have to deal with the situation anymore and just want to end the case as soon as possible. What they don’t realize is that not only will the insurance adjuster offer you a lower settlement if they realize you just want your case closed, but many injuries don’t surface right away. A week later, you may realize that irritating ringing in your ears still hasn’t gone away or that you just can’t seem to sleep like before your wreck.
If you are considering signing a release with your insurance company, you should seek legal advice first. Contacting a Wichita personal injury attorney can help you determine the details of your case and the legal options available to you.
