Defending your interests
Insurers know you need the money and, unfortunately, have a reputation for taking advantage. They often make low settlement offers that do not consider your future needs. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident and accept the low offer and sign the required release, you will lose your right to ever ask for more money no matter how extensive your damages later turn out to be.
