What is a Release?

January 2024

A release is a legal document used to settle a claim.  The release acts to release a party for further liability for a matter. The release is typically given in exchange for compensation.

At Herrick & Hart, we recommend to never sign a release for a personal injury claim without consulting an attorney.  The release has legal consequences and should carefully be reviewed by a lawyer.

If you have been injured due to the fault of another, take the time to contact Herrick & Hart.  We have been on the side of the injured for over 70 years.
