After an Accident Expect the Insurance Companies to be Knocking at Your Door

Within days of an accident, insurance adjusters often knock on your door. They may ask you to accept a check and sign a release in return for the check. Remember, cashing or depositing any check from the insurance company may be a binding release of all claims. They may promise to keep your medical bills open for a year. Read the release forms carefully. You will probably notice the phrase “Reasonable medical expenses” there’s the catch! The insurance company decides what’s reasonable- not you or your doctor.

Don’t sign anything and here’s why. People who have been in an accident sometimes learn weeks or even months after the accident that they need surgery or have permanent injuries. If you've already signed a release, you may have given up your rights to recover for your injuries.

If you've been seriously injured in a car accident in North Carolina, contact the personal injury lawyers at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban to help protect your rights.
