What’s Covered Under Third-Party Claims?
Pursuing Compensation From Another Driver’s Insurance Provider
If you have been injured in an auto accident that was clearly the fault of another driver, you may wish to file a third-party claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. This differs from a first-party claim where you would seek coverage from your insurance carrier. An experienced lawyer can help guide you through this process while ensuring that you recover the full compensation you deserve.
At Gillis Law Firm, our attorneys have extensive experience handling all types of auto accident claims in Connecticut. We can help you gather the information you need to make a strong third-party claim.
Recovering Expenses For Property Damage And Medical Treatments
A third-party claim can help cover any property damage or medical expenses stemming from the auto accident. Because these types of claims involve the other party’s insurance company, you can likely pursue a claim without worrying about skyrocketing insurance premiums. It is important to set forth the strongest possible case for your claim, which may include copies of the accident report, photos of any damage and details of accident-related injuries. An attorney can help you gather all of this information and put it together in a cohesive manner.
In some cases, the other driver may be underinsured. In other words, their coverage limit is not enough to cover your expenses. In these cases, you may file a first-party claim with your insurance provider for additional coverage. If this is not an option or if you wish to avoid filing a claim with your insurance company, we can help explore your legal options, including a possible personal injury lawsuit.
