I’ve already accepted a settlement from the insurance company, but I’ve since had more medical bills. What can I do?

Unfortunately, if you have already signed a release form with the insurance company, you’ve lost the ability to pursue legal action against either the at-fault driver, their insurance carrier, and possibly your own UM insurance. The best possible scenario is to avoid this situation altogether, which you can do by not signing the release form until you have absolute medical clearance from your doctor that you are finished with treatment.

If your injuries are of the type that will require future treatment(s), you need to take this into account in any settlement or resolution.  If you need help determining if the insurance settlement offer is fair and will cover all of your current and future expenses, give us a call at 985-240-9773.
