How Insurance Companies Determine Negligence
When you make a claim for personal injuries, there will be another person or company that you are claiming caused your injuries with their careless or negligent actions. Whether it was an auto accident, a work accident, or some other type of accident, the adverse party will most likely have an insurance policy. This means that you will be negotiating with the insurance company for a settlement for your injuries. Insurance companies spend a great deal of time investigating your claim to determine who is at fault. Insurance companies have teams of investigators and adjusters who are trained to minimize your settlement, and they will often try to do so by claiming that you are partially or totally at fault for your own injuries.

There are specific rules for New York auto accident claims. New York is called a no-fault state, but that doesn’t mean that no one is liable for your injuries. What it means is that your auto insurance will pay your medical bills up to a certain amount regardless of who is at fault. If the other driver is at fault, your insurance premiums will not increase even though your insurance company is paying your medical bills. Your pain and suffering claim, however, will be paid for by the insurance company for the driver that hit you. As you can see, negotiating with and corresponding with both insurance companies can be complicated and difficult. Let Belushin Law Firm handle your bodily injury liability claim for you.
