Albany Personal Injury FAQs

What is “negligence”?

Personal Injury negligence is a legal term for carelessness that leads to personal harm. If a person’s negligence leads to the injury or harm of another person, they may be held responsible to the injured person.

Should I sign a release or anything from an insurance company?

Not until consulting with a lawyer first! Most of the time, an insurance company will not pay you without obtaining your signature on a release. But a signed release allows the insurance company to be free from the obligation to pay anything more on your claim. It also prevents you from bringing up a lawsuit in the future.

A good legal team like the attorneys at James Trauring & Associates, LLC, should be able to review a release and advise you whether you risk losing any rights by signing it.

The insurance company is offering to settle. Should I accept the money?

Always view offers from an insurance company with suspicion. Remember, the insurance companies are in the business of making money. Plus, if it’s not your insurance company, they don’t have your best interests in mind. That means they’ll use every trick in the book to force you into a quick settlement – even if it means they don’t play fair.

Contact an experienced legal team like the one at James Trauring & Associates, LLC, before you accept any kind of settlement. You may be entitled to more than what the insurance company is offering you.
