Q: I was sent an affidavit for a car accident that was already decided the other party’s fault. What’s happens If signed?
I had a car accident which both insurance companies put 100% fault in the other party but the dude is still trying to sue over a fake injury he got. His lawyer sent my insurance company an affidavit and they tell me I can either sign it or choose not to. Would signing it be the same as me saying it’s my fault? Am I getting tricked? Again both insurance companies decided it was his fault so I still don’t understand how he even got a lawyer to go with this
A: Your inquiry is impossible to respond to without knowing the affidavit statement(s) that you are being requested to agree with.
Tim Akpinar agrees with this answer
A: I agree with Mr. Baron. Without knowing what it says, it's anyone's guess as to what you are being asked to agree to. You could consult with a Florida attorney and show them the affidavit and ask for an explanation as to legal effect. Good luck
