Got into a collision.. driver came out of driveway without yielding and over double solid lines ... at the time I felt no pain .. next morning had pain in neck and shoulders .. started seeing s chiropractor but felt better didn’t feel any pain .. I accepted an amount from the other insurance saying i wouldn’t sur etc .. the following week I got an mri done just incase and turns out I got three herniated discs ... there’s no way around me stating i won’t sue them or the insured in the future ?
If you signed the Release... you are done. No way around that unfortunately. Caselaw is very clear on the issue.
Your facts are unclear. Did this vehicular accident happen while you were in the course of employment. You put this under the "Workers Compensation" category. The answer is important. Why would you settle a case without talking to a lawyer first? Did you file a no-fault claim? Who is paying for the Chiropractor and the MRI's?
This is merely a general response to a common inquiry and does not create an attorney-client relationship. You would have to visit a Workers Compensation / Social Security Disability attorney (as your needs may dictate) and retain them to establish an attorney-client relationship.
According to your narrative, you accepted the money on the basis that you would not sue. That's that.
Unless there is a potential other liable party, you may have signed a release against the only liable party and therefore you cannot file suit.
