A: An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could depend on the scope of painting - and how long the person would be without a car due to the work. Whatever the two of you agree upon, it would be advisable to use a release. A release is a form the claimant signs. The purpose of a release is to put the terms of an agreement in writing. The result should be that a claimant agrees not to pursue future claims once they've gotten their money. Good luck
