You could be signing away your rights to thousands of dollars, which you will likely need to cover your medical bills, time away from work, and any other losses you experience while you recover from the accident.
What you can focus on after your accident is getting better. Get medical care, go to all your appointments, and do what your doctor tells you to do. Your attorney will handle the rest. What every jury wants to see is an accident victim doing everything they can to get better. Questions? We’d be happy to give you some answers. Give us a call at 206-285-1743.
