If you are injured due to someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation. Immediately following an accident is not the time to accept a settlement if you are still treating for your injuries, or if the full nature and extent of your injuries is not yet known. Typically a settlement will be a one time payment, and the insurance company or at fault party will demand that you sign a Release in exchange. Beware of the Release. The Release is an important contractual document which will affect your legal rights and bar you from requesting additional compensation should your injuries be worse then initially contemplated.At SWENSON LERVICK SYVERSON TROSVIG JACOBSON SCHULTZ, P.A. we have experienced injury attorneys who will advise you of your legal rights and whether accepting a settlement is in your best interests.
