Getting the money you deserve from insurance companies can be a frustrating and time-consuming process. Being involved in an accident, having business interruptions, or receiving property damage is stressful for all involved. Dealing with outside parties like insurance companies further complicates matters.
Early in this process, it is crucial to seek the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer who will fight on your behalf to make the process of getting compensation as seamless as possible.
If you are submitting an personal injury insurance claim, here are some things you can expect to see:

After determining what type of claim you have, it's time to file it.
When Can You File a Claim?
If anyone involved was injured or you do not know what party is at fault, you should file an insurance claim as soon as possible. Depending on the type of claim, you may have anywhere from 1 to 10 years to file it. A general rule of thumb is to make your claim as soon as possible. Waiting may result in your insurer investigating your claim and possibly denying it.
What You Should and Should Not Do
There are a few things that every person should do and should not do when filing a claim.
You should gather evidence, know the statute of limitations, and file a police report (if necessary). Next, you should consider reaching out to a lawyer. Our team will communicate and negotiate with insurance companies to fight for the greatest compensation.
You should NOT admit guilt even if you think you are at fault. Leave that up to the insurance companies
