Today our free form is a release of liability. If for some reason you find yourself at fault for damaging someone else’s property or for causing someone else’s injury, then before you pay for any property damage and/or injuries you are going to want the other person to sign a Release of Liability. The Release of Liability will ensure that you do not later owe more money if the person you paid becomes unsatisfied with your settlement agreement.
Please know that if you have insurance that would cover your liability (like an automobile insurance policy, homeowner’s insurance policy, etc.), your policy typically contains a provision that requires you to notify your insurance company prior to negotiating a settlement with an injured party. You can not generally negotiate a settlement and then submit the settlement release to your insurance company for reimbursement.
