Guidance Throughout The Personal Injury Claims Process
After suffering a serious injury, navigating the policies of the insurance company can be daunting. However, doing so can provide necessary financial compensation for the injuries you sustained.
The Zerbe Firm has six decades of experience in assisting individuals and families across Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. We realize the overwhelming nature of managing the personal injury claims process and seek to be a dedicated advocate for you throughout an uncertain time.
The Process Of Seeking Compensatory Damages
After an injury from a car accident, slip-and-fall accident or another preventable tragedy, we will review your case and file a claim with the insurance company. If you were the sole party involved, your own insurer will receive the claim. If another party was liable, the at-fault party’s insurance company will receive the claim.
Once the insurer receives your claim, the company will typically:
- Investigate your accident and all potential contributing factors
- Determine whether you were partially at fault, abiding by Indiana’s comparative negligence laws
- Deliberate on available damages based on fault percentages
- Offer you a settlement or deny your claim
Comparative negligence connects your available damages with your liability in the accident. For example, if you were 10 percent at fault in a car crash, only 90 percent of damages are available to you.
Why Work With An Attorney
The process of filing a claim and pursuing a settlement seems straightforward. However, the insurance company may propose a settlement far below what you deserve. In this case, you need a lawyer to fight for what is in your best interests. Insurance companies can take advantage of the eagerness of injured individuals to quickly resolve the situation.
We can assist throughout the entire process, from filing a claim to representing you against the insurance company. If you receive an insufficient settlement, litigation may be required to pursue what you are entitled to receive. We will aggressively advocate for you in court and are determined to fight for what you deserve.
