Should I Sign a Release After an Auto Accident?

Representing Orlando, the Four Corners, Tampa and Nearby Areas of Florida

Though their commercials might tell you otherwise, insurance companies are primarily concerned with protecting the bottom line. When another driver causes an auto accident, his or her insurer will almost certainly look to settle your claim early with an offer that is likely lower than the compensation you deserve.

If an insurance company asks you to sign a release, it’s imperative to consult an experienced auto accident lawyer before signing anything. Signing release forms could authorize an insurance company to dig into your medical records or even absolve the responsible driver and the insurance company of liability.

It can be difficult for a layperson to understand the documents sent by an insurance company. Our Florida attorneys have the experience to help. Please call Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter today at (855) 880-4741 for a free review of your auto accident claim.
