Thank you for the information and your question. If you want the settlement payment you must sign the release. That is how these claims are settled. Even if you were to file suit and win, versus settling this way, you would have to sign a release of sorts before receiving payment. But, in this case the insurance Company isn't going to pay unless you are going to waive your right to file suit.
Please let me know if you need any clarification.
