An insurance adjuster may ask you to sign various documents. Don’t be tricked. These are legal documents that may require you to give up legal rights if you sign them. You should never sign any document provided to you by an insurance company without first having it reviewed by a lawyer.
Our lawyers will review any document related to your injury claim without charge. If an insurance company asks you to sign anything, contact us first by phone, text or message. We will review the document with you, free of charge, to help protect your rights. There is never a need to sign an insurance document without having it reviewed by a lawyer.
Before you sign anything presented by an insurance representative, you need to know that the insurance company is treating you fairly and in good faith. If you let an insurer treat you unfairly, you may receive a settlement which is far less than your claim is actually worth. You can learn more about fair treatment by an insurance company here and the fair value of your claim here.
The most common documents which an insurer may send you are medical releases and proposed settlement agreements. You should not sign either without legal advice.
You can find more information regarding the dangers of signing medical releases and settlement releases elsewhere on this site.
Additionally, you may be asked by an insurance company to provide a written or recorded statement about the circumstances of your accident. You can learn more about recorded statements here.
You should never provide a recorded statement without first talking to a qualified lawyer. Our lawyers are happy to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of providing a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster in your circumstances. Just contact us and a lawyer will evaluate your situation in minutes, free of charge.

Don is a founding partner and one of the nation’s top-ranked personal injury litigators. He is a member of the Multi-million Dollar Advocates Forum, which includes less than 1% of the nation’s trial lawyers, and awarded the highest ranking given by Martindale Hubbel and AVVO.
More importantly, Don understands representing personal injury victims is about more than recovering the best settlement: it’s about helping clients get back on their feet and supporting them in every aspect of their recovery.
In nearly all cases, our clients seek compensation from the wrongdoer’s insurance company. Before forming Wruck Paupore, Jason worked for a prominent law firm representing some of the world’s largest insurers. This experience gives Jason a deep understanding of the insurance industry and the strategies it uses to pay injury victims as little as possible.
Jason -- and our entire team -- put this inside knowledge to work to force insurance companies to pay what is actually owed. Often, we use the insurance company’s own tactics against them as we fight for the full compensation our client deserves.
For more than four decades, Keith has been fighting for injury victims. During that time, he’s watched the insurance industry change, with insurers now more interested in protecting their stock price than treating injury victims fairly.
Since the beginning, Keith has put people first. From his childhood in Gary, Indiana during the 1960’s and working his way through law school, Keith has risen to become one of the Midwest’s most respected trial lawyers. He has never forgotten that being a lawyer is about helping people -- and seeing injury victims through struggles in a way that could change their lives forever.
Over the decades, Keith, Don and Jason have fought relentlessly for clients, even when other lawyers have said the case was impossible to win.
