A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Until you arrange a meaningful consult with an Arizona attorney, look closely at the terms of the release for the settlement of the title loan. In closing out auto claims, different claims adjustors could be assigned different components of a single accident claim (property damage, lost wages, bodily injury, etc.). If the wording is such that it says something to the effect of payment being for all claims, present and future, known and unknown, etc., etc., it's possible it could be a blanket release that closes out everything upon acceptance of the dollar figure. No one here could say for sure. You could take the release and review it with an Arizona attorney. Good luck
