Should I accept a check from the at-fault driver or their insurance company after my Maryland auto accident case?

Video Transcription:

If you’re injured in a Maryland auto accident case, you should not accept a check from the insurance company or the at-fault driver unless you are willing to settle your claim for that amount. Once you accept the check and you negotiate and cash that check, it’s deemed that you have settled your case.

If you have received the check, my suggestion is that you give it to your attorney so that they can send it back to the insurer with a letter indicating that you are not willing to settle your claim at this time. It’s important that you ascertain the extent of your injuries and you get the appropriate treatment before even considering settling your auto accident claim.
