Should you agree to close your case, you don't think you are hurt. Here is a simple guide to follow.It's shortly after the accident and I don't think I'm hurt. Should I sign papers that waive my medical claim?
Answer: No, absolutely not. Injury does not appear immediately after an accident. Sometimes it can take up to 72 hours. An insurance company would love for you to sign off on your claim, thereby eliminating any potential for your case. If you sign documents waiving such a claim, you are not entitled to make that claim at a later date.
Therefore, it is very important that you not sign off any advantages or rights that you may have. It is far better to wait and see if you have any symptoms or injuries. If after a month or two, your symptoms have not changed or you have no symptoms, then accepting an offer and waiving the balance of your rights is more advisable.
