Q. What is a "Release"?

You will be required to sign a GENERAL RELEASE which will state that your settlement is a COMPLETE, FINAL AND IRREVOCABLE SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION OF ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, RIGHTS OR DEMANDS OR CAUSES OF ACTION, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, WHICH YOU MAY HAVE AS A RESULT OF YOUR ACCIDENT (NOTE: BOTH SPOUSES ARE GENERALLY REQUIRED TO SIGN WHEN THE INJURED PARTY IS MARRIED) MARRIED). This means that you will no longer have any claim against the "at-fault" driver, or any potential defendant, or their insurance company as a result of this settlement.
