What happens if I sign a release following a Herndon auto accident?

If the insurance adjuster has asked you to sign a release, you need to understand that it will put an end to your case. Once you sign a release and cash your check, your case has officially come to a close.

You need to be careful about signing a release form too early. Sometimes, injuries don’t surface immediately and you may not be aware of the prognosis of your condition. You could be facing surgery and years of treatment. If you signed a release and settled your case, you cannot go back. It doesn’t matter that you weren’t aware of your injuries, the insurance company is not obligated to pay you any more money.

If you are not sure if you are ready to settle with the insurance company or if you have questions about your case, you should contact a Herndon personal injury attorney. A lawyer will be able to go over the details of your case and help you determine your legal options.
