¿Qué es un reclamo de seguro?

Miami-Insurance-Claim-Lawyer-300x201En Miami, el Estudio de Abogados Perazzo Law Firm, brinda informacion sobre Reclamos de Seguros para cubrir lesiones y perdidas tras un accidente en La Florida.

Un reclamo de seguro es un medio legal para obtener una compensación de aquellos que tienen la culpa legalmente después de un accidente, un acto de negligencia o cualquier tipo de irregularidad por parte de otra persona, fabricante u operador comercial. Cuando una víctima de accidente presenta un reclamo de seguro, generalmente a través de un abogado de lesiones personales, él o ella está haciendo una solicitud formal a su proveedor de seguros y / o al proveedor de seguros de los culpables. El reclamo de seguro está destinado a ayudar a compensar a las víctimas de accidentes para que puedan cubrir sus pérdidas financieras, dolor físico, trauma mental, daños o cualquier otra pérdida provocada por un accidente, negligencia o irregularidad. Jonathan Perazzo, abogado de lesiones personales y fundador de Perazzo Law Firm, insta encarecidamente a las víctimas de accidentes a que consulten a un abogado de lesiones personales de confianza y dedicado antes de presentar un reclamo de seguro por su cuenta. ¿Por qué? Porque es una práctica común entre los proveedores de seguros ofrecer a las víctimas de accidentes, o las que han sufrido pérdidas, liquidaciones inferiores a su valor real. En otras palabras, sin los servicios legales de un abogado especializado en lesiones personales, la persona que presenta el reclamo de seguro puede recibir menos de lo que realmente vale el reclamo. En caso de duda, comuníquese con un abogado de lesiones personales que se esforzará por obtener el máximo pago o compensación posible que se merezca para cubrir lesiones personales, daños o pérdidas.

Miami-Insurance-Claim-Lawyer-300x201What is an Insurance Claim?

An insurance claim is a legal means for obtaining compensation from those found legally at fault after an accident, an act of negligence, or any sort of wrongdoing by another individual, manufacturer, or business operator. When an accident victim files an insurance claim, most often through a personal injury attorney, he or she is making a formal request to their insurance provider, and/or the insurance provider of those at fault. The insurance claim is meant to help compensate accident victims so that they can cover their financial losses, physical pain, mental trauma, damages, or any other losses brought on from an accident, negligence, or wrongdoing. Jonathan Perazzo, personal injury attorney and founder of the Perazzo Law Firm, strongly urges accident victims, to consult a trusted and dedicated personal injury lawyer before filing an insurance claim on their own. Why? Because it is a common practice among insurance providers to offer accident victims, or those that have suffered losses, settlements which are lower than their real value. In other words, without the legal services of a dedicated personal injury lawyer, the person filing the insurance claim may receive less than the claim is actually worth. When in doubt, contact a personal injury lawyer that will strive for the maximum possible payout or compensation deserved to cover personal injury, damages, or losses.
