Risk Involved with Settling a Car Accident Injury Case Early

If you have been involved in an automobile or truck accident, beware of settling too early. Many serious injuries cannot be discovered immediately after an accident.

When driving on Nashville interstates, you can’t help but notice the regularly updated state traffic fatalities counts on the digital billboards. In 2013, 988 persons were killed in Motor Vehicle wrecks in Tennessee. Nearly three fatalities occur daily and that number does not include serious injuries from wrecks that did not result in deaths.

Don’t Settle Your Personal Injury Claim Too Quickly

The insurance company for the party at fault may want you to sign a release form as soon as possible. This means that you agree to “release” the company and their client from any future claims or damages resulting from the accident.

Impacts of Signing Release Forms and Closing Your Case Early

Other than specific out-of-pocket expenses that include property damage, medical expenses and loss of wages, you may have a right to additional compensation. Damages can include pain and suffering and permanent injury. You have the right to collect for present as well as future suffering. Additionally, in some situations, damages can be awarded for future lost income or future medical expenses.
