What does it mean to file an insurance claim?

When you have been injured or a family member has been injured in some sort of incident, some sort of collision, accident, the first thing that is generally done is an insurance claim is filed. And what that means is that the insurance company is contacted and told that there has been an incident either your insured person caused an injury or you’re contacting your own company to let them know that you’re making a claim. That’s the majority of what we do, is that somebody who has been injured because of the fault of somebody else and then an insurance claim has to be made. If the insurance claim or the insurance company is not addressing it properly or refuses to pay a fair amount for the damage that’s been done, then we file a lawsuit and the lawsuit process will begin. But the important thing is to file your insurance claims early and do the investigation early. And that’s what we do.
