Know your Legal Rights after an accident or injury in Georgia. Once you sign a release, you lose your right to take any further legal action against that party. This is why you should never accept a settlement offer or sign a release until you have first met with an attorney.
The Millar Law Firm’s personal injury and accident attorneys can review any settlement offer and determine whether it is unfair or legally defective.
If the settlement offer does not provide just compensation, your attorney can either negotiate with the insurance company or take your case to court.
Please see our page on Insurance Settlements to learn more about this topic.
The bottom line: If you sign a release without an attorney’s advice and representation, you face the very real risk of losing your right to a full and proper recovery.
