Should I Sign a Release

Know your rights before you sign a maritime release or settlement agreement for personal injuries. Don't sign a release until you have had your rights fully explained to you by an experienced maritime personal injury attorney. Stacey & Jacobsen, PLLC offers free initial legal consultations. It costs you nothing to call to talk about your claim.

Do you have a permanent injury from a maritime accident that will cause you pain and suffering and lost wages in the future? Why do you think the insurance company, boat owner, or your employer want you to sign a release? The answer is easy: It is to foreclose you from reopening your claim and asking for more money in the future. If you haven't consulted with an experienced maritime lawyer to evaluate your claim, you may be giving up valuable rights, and not being paid full and fair compensation for your injury claim.
