The best advice on signing a release of claims is to think twice before signing a release of claims before leaving a business where you have been hurt in a Slip and Fall Claims in a Business. Then don’t sign it.Many Businesses Will Try to Get You to Sign Before Leaving
Businesses will often try to get you to sign a release of claims for a trivial payment before you leave. They do this knowing full well that many times people may have suffered very serious injuries but are suffering a some shock and embarrassment from the accident.
The business will then try to offer a very low offer while dismissing the seriousness of the claim or its responsibility.
Any Offer at the Scene of the Accident is Most Assuredly a Very Low Offer
It is simple common sense that will tell you that a business offering a settlement without knowing the injuries or liability is expecting a substantial amount of both.
Businesses and insurance companies are not in the business of providing gifts to customers. That is simply not a sound business model. The business is looking after itself, not you. You alone can do that.
