Are You Involved In An Insurance Dispute?

When someone is injured on his or her friend's property or in a friend's vehicle, the last thing he or she wants to do is be forced to sue a friend. However, there are costs associated with accidents, and it is important to obtain compensation. You can rest assured that it is extremely rare that compensation for injuries comes from individuals. It is far more likely that compensation will come from the insurance company or corporation that employs the person responsible for your injury.

At Piering Law Firm in Sacramento, we discuss your options for pursuing your claim and make sure you are aware of the different considerations involved in your decision. It is only when you fully understand what, if any, impact your claim may have on your friend that you can make a fully informed decision.

Pursuing Compensation From The Insurance Company

If you or a loved one suffered an injury in a friend's car or in his or her home, you may be entitled to compensation under your friend's insurance policy. The lawyers at Piering Law Firm are knowledgeable about these third-party insurance claims and can use their experience to assist you.

California insurance claims full under two primary categories:

  • First-party insurance claims: This is the most typical type of insurance claim. It is a claim that you make with your own insurance company. In a vehicle accident, for example, this would be the claim you file with your insurance adjuster to cover damage to your vehicle and any medical bills for injuries resulting from an accident.
  • Third-party insurance claims: As opposed to first-party claims against your own insurance company, these are claims that you would pursue against the insurance company that represents the person or business responsible for your injuries. For example, if you slipped and fell in a grocery store due to an unmarked spill, you would make a third-party claim against the store's insurance company.

There are multiple laws and regulations that California insurance companies are required to follow. Because of the complexity of these laws, it is best to obtain the assistance of a skilled personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in an accident. One of the experienced attorneys of Piering Law Firm in Sacramento can help you determine what type of claim you should file to obtain full compensation for the harm you have suffered. We will represent you against large insurance companies, many of whom will fight to avoid paying you what you are owed.
