Property Damage Claims in Personal Injury Cases
A Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyer Explains the 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
Obstacles in Pursuing Compensation for Damages
Under Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn personal injury
lawyer to represent you. A Brooklyn 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.
