Q: I was on a bus and it got into an accident. The bus company paid for my doctor, and they’ll give me $1500 if I sign a paper saying that I’m OK. I don’t think it’s a good idea. What should I do?
A: Trust your instincts and don’t sign anything until you speak with an attorney. The bus company wants you to sign a release; once you do, you can never get any money from them, even if you find out that the accident caused a serious injury matters and can prepare reports to help your case. At this point, the best thing you can do is get good medical treatment so you get well and find a good personal injury attorney, so you get everything you deserve.
