Property Damage Claims in Personal Injury Cases

Belushin Law Firm's Legal Process

When you are injured in an accident, there is a very good chance that your property has also been damaged. This happens most often with auto accidents where your car is damaged in an accident, but personal property such as a home, equipment, or other items can also be damaged. If your personal property such as a car, home, or other possessions is covered by insurance, you will be able to bring a claim to be compensated for the damage to your possessions.

Obstacles in Pursuing Compensation for Damages

Under New York personal injury law, when your property is damaged due to another person’s negligence, the insurance company will estimate the cost of the damage and compensate you to fix your vehicle or home. However, if your property is damaged beyond repair, the insurance company will find that your vehicle or item is a “total loss,” and will compensate you for the value of your car or item.

Sometimes, when a person suffers personal injury and property damage, the insurance company estimates the value or their property far below a fair value. If this occurs to you, you should contact a NY personal injury lawyer to represent you. A NYC personal injury attorney can help to make sure that the insurance company gives you a fair estimate for the damage to your vehicle or the value of your vehicle if it is totaled. In addition to getting personal injury damages, you should also be compensated fairly for damage to your property.

In addition to low offers for totaled vehicles, sometimes insurance companies unfairly or fraudulently deny legitimate insurance claims. With homeowners insurance, liability insurance, or other types of insurance, you have been paying your policy amounts for years, and when you try to put in a claim, it is wrongfully denied. Insurance companies may try to argue that your claim is not covered or they may try to unreasonably delay the processing of your claim.

Stand Up to Stubborn Insurance Companies

If you believe that you have been treated unfairly by your insurance company when trying to bring a claim for your property damage, you may be entitled to file a claim against your insurance company. This claim could be for damage from an auto accident or some other type of property damage, such as damage to your home or your possessions. Don't let an insurance company get away with bad faith by denying your legitimate insurance claim for property damage. Contact an attorney with Belushin Law Firm who will represent you. If you have suffered personal injury damages as well as property damages in an auto accident, you are entitled to a settlement for the damage to your car as well as your pain and suffering.
