Video Summary

  • If the forms are from your own insurance company, they likely need information to process your claim, such as medical payments coverage or other relevant coverage.
  • If the forms are from the insurance company of the party at fault, be cautious before signing. They might include a release of medical information, giving them access to your records even if unrelated to the accident.
  • Another form they might send is a release of liability, which means you give up the right to sue the party at fault or their insurance company in the future.
  • If considering signing a release of liability, be sure the settlement offer fully compensates for your losses, as there won't be another chance to claim compensation after signing. It's best to consult an attorney before proceeding.
