In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm shares insight for understanding insurance claims and how they work after an accident or situation that results in personal injury, damages, or losses.
What 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.
