This review list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation. Claim settlements, like releases, are a good idea to get memorialized and signed. This form provides that vehicle to effect that action. Use it if in doubt.
Make multiple copies. Give one to each signatory. Keep one with the transaction file.
Most parties are willing to accept less money immediately after an event than later after brooding over it. This is why insurance companies work hard to get quick settlements. Be so advised yourself to follow their experienced approach to these kinds of matters, if possible in your case.
