What happens when you are driving down the road somewhere in New London County and you get rear ended by someone who was not paying attention to what they were doing? That person’s insurance company, knowing they are responsible for your damages, might very well contact you and try and try to get information from you, such as having you sign a release to get your medical records and other information about the accident. Remember, they are not trying to help you, they are trying to save money for the insurance company they work for. Their ultimate goal is to settle the case as cheaply as they can because they know value and you don’t. If this happens to you, don’t sign anything and don’t settle until you talk to an attorney about value. It is a rare case indeed where someone makes out better handling the case themselves. If you have any questions, call Attorney Mark O. Grater in Groton, Connecticut at 860-449-8059.
