Can I ask the insurance company for more money if I need it later, after I’ve settled?

Typically, you cannot ask the insurance company for additional money after the claim has been closed. When you sign the claim, you are usually releasing the insurance company from any further obligation to cover the loss. It is extremely important that you get good counsel before signing the release. Make sure that you are well aware of any and all injuries that have resulted from the accident and the recommended treatment plan. If you rush to settle a claim without knowing the extent of the damage caused or the recovery needed, you could be missing out on money that you deserve.
