Should I sign a release or offer a statement (either written or oral) to an insurance company or an attorney?
You should not offer any written or oral statement, or sign anything, without first seeking counsel from a personal injury attorney. When you are being asked to sign something by another party's attorney or insurance company, remember that those individuals are representing somebody else and therefore may be asking you to sign something that is not in YOUR best interest. Engage a personal injury attorney to make sure that your rights are protected and that you receive fair compensation for any damages to you or your property. Signing a document without first contacting your attorney may prohibit you from recovering damages in the future.
