If you have had a motor vehicle accident and are not satisfied with the level of compensation you received, you can file a Glendale accident claim against your insurance company.
You may be wondering what steps you should take to file your claim or what if any type of assistance you need.
Most insurance companies are in business to make money so it is to their interest to deny claims as much as possible. You must remember that there are no restrictions on how much your claim could be, your financial means, your driving record, or any other reason for your claim being denied.
All you have to do is present the proof that you have been in an auto accident and are injured
to a Glendale auto insurance company. Once they receive this information, you will then be able to make a decision as to whether you want to pursue your claim or take the insurance company to court.
If you decide to go with the insurance company's request to not pursue your claim, you will need to provide the insurance company with all of the details about the accident. Most of the information should be fairly obvious
and the insurance company is going to want to know everything about the incident.
It is a good idea to take along pictures of any damage you might have incurred and wear clothing that was worn at the time of the accident. Make sure that you can prove you were in an accident before
you go to a judge and file your claim.
If you choose to go with the insurance company's request not to pursue your claim, you will be informed in writing that they will file the claim on your behalf. You will be asked to pay a processing fee and a filing fee and if you want the claim to be denied, you will have to be willing to lose a substantial amount of money in settlement.
If you decide to proceed with your claim, a Glendale attorney will have to handle the case. A skilled attorney should be able to present evidence of the fault of the other driver to your insurance company and convince them to move forward with the claim.
If the claim is denied by the insurance company, a licensed attorney in Arizona will file a lawsuit in court. The law in this state protects your rights to seek compensation for your injuries.
Any attorney that you hire to represent you will be responsible for all legal fees associated with the claim and for any judgment. Even if you have the support of friends and family, most attorneys are extremely expensive and there are certainly better ways to spend money.
Remember that if you decide to pursue your claim, it will not be a one time deal. Every time you file a claim, you have the chance to refile, meaning your insurance company will need to pay a certain amount of money each time.
As you can see, filing a claim does not have to be overwhelming, but if you do file one, it will take some legal work on your part. An experienced Glendale attorney will have the experience to handle a lawsuit successfully for you.
