Liability Waivers – Personal Injury and General Releases

A waiver of liability is a legal document that releases the defendant from any and all legal liability arising out of the injury causing incident. This is also called a general release of all claims. This means you will be forever more barred from suing the defendant should your injuries worsen or try to claim additional damages.

If you’re injured in an automobile accident and the insurance representative comes to your home and asks you to sign a form, it is strongly advise that you first consult with a lawyer before signing anything. You are also advised not to give a recorded or written statement without your lawyer present.

Insurance companies are notorious for violating Fair Claims Practices Act and will try to have you settle for the lowest amount possible.
