The insurance company has one goal after an accident. It wants to pay you as little as possible for your claim. Fair settlements are possible, particularly if you work with a Wisconsin personal injury lawyer. However, before the settlement money arrives, you will be asked to sign a Release of All Claims Form.
Understanding the Release of All Claims Form
A Release of All Claims Form, sometimes known as a liability waiver form, is an agreement created by the insurance company with its own needs in mind. When you sign the form, you agree to:
- Resolve your insurance claim in exchange for the amount of money provided by the insurance company
- Release the insurance company and the negligent driver from any future liability
In other words, you agree that your claim is over and the settlement money is all of the compensation that you will ever receive for your injuries.
Don’t Sign a Release of All Claims Form Without a Personal Injury Lawyer
While the goal of a liability waiver may be clear, the form that you are asked to sign may be very complicated. The Release of All Claims Form may be many pages long and full of legal jargon that is difficult to understand.
This is your only chance to get the compensation that you deserve. Therefore, we encourage you to make sure that you understand all of the terms of the contract you are about to sign.
