Q: Should I sign
A PI came to my house from the other party insurance asking me to sign a paper stating that I was not injured or for damages.. in this accident I hit a car(Nissan) that hit a pedestrian and another car(Tesla). The Tesla insurance sent the PI to my house to sign this paper because they are suing the guy with the Nissan I was put at 51% at fault .. I haven’t signed any paper work because my insurance is not trying to pay me what my car is appraised for but now I have this PI stating these people are suing each other and he wants me to sign so they don’t go against me my question is why would the other insurance want me to sign that and should I .. it sounds like it would be convenient for me to sign it but doesn’t sound right that the other insurance would be trying to help me out of being sued
A: You should notify your own insurance company of the accident and forward to it this document that the other insurer wants you to sign. No attorney could give you an opinion on whether to sign a document without reading it.
It's important to be cautious before signing any document related to a legal matter. Consult with your own attorney before signing any papers provided by the opposing party's insurance or their representative. Their interest may not align with yours, and you should fully understand the implications before taking any action.
