Insurance Tips For Car Accident Patients
Settling With Insurance
Don’t settle with the insurance company until you have completed all of your medical treatment and your injuries are as healed as they are going to get. Otherwise, you don’t know the total cost of your injuries.
Signing Release Forms
Don’t sign release forms or checks with releases on them before you are ready to settle. Signing this releases the insurance company from the responsibility of treating your injury.
Don’t cave into pressure not to file a police report.
Obtaining Legal Representation
If you decide to pursue legal representation, find someone that specializes in personal injury. We work with many personal injury attorneys in Seattle and we will gladly refer you to one if necessary. It’s important to have someone that knows the ins and outs of the law and insurance coverage.
