PUBLIC SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT: DO NOT GIVE INSURANCE COMPANIES A VERBAL AGREEMENT TO SETTLE YOUR CASE!
CIA Media Group
I understand that there is notion of fast money is good money. However, in most instances, it is not at all. If you agree to settle your claim during a recorded statement, and the insurance company mails you a payment, it is deemed to be a valid release.
You will not be able to sue later for your medical treatment. You will not be able to change your mind when you start experiencing pain. It does not matter whether you cashed the check or not. A verbal release plus a tendered check is a valid contractual agreement.
If you have been involved in a trucking or auto collision, speak with a reputable injury attorney FIRST.
