Q If the defendant offers to pay my medical bills, and I accept, can I still sue?
Once in a long while in a New London, Connecticut car crash case, a defendant or their insurance company will offer to pay your medical bills. They might suggest that there are no strings attached. They might suggest that they will pay your medical bills now, and you can still bring a claim for your injuries later. Don't be tempted. The reality is that while the defendant might agree to pay your medical bills, they will only do so with the signing of a general release of all claims. This means you are fully settling the case. If you settle now, for a payment of your medical bills, then you can never recover anything else in the future.
