Won’t my insurance cover the claims?
The main reason many people secure auto insurance is in order to cover expenses in the case of an accident. The truth is, your own car insurance limits may be too low to be your entire source of compensation. A personal injury lawyer skilled in insurance disputes will devote extensive effort to verifying whether or not another liable party exists. If another motorist, person or entity displayed negligence, you may have grounds to file an injury claim or lawsuit. If this is possible, you and your attorney might be able to secure the financial compensation you need for your damages and injuries.
Can umbrella policies help?
Insurance coverage, whether sourced from your policy or that of the other liable party, may provided valuable compensation after a car wreck or other serious accident wherein you have suffered a brain or spinal cord injury. Some insurance carriers offer additional “umbrella policies” designed to provide extra-large liability coverage in the case of substantial claims.

What will arbitration and litigation mean?
Arbitration can sometimes be a quicker and more cost effective method of resolving a disagreement than litigation and trial. Unfortunately, because arbitration does not engage a jury, the outcomes typically favor insurance companies.
The other option is litigation, which means filing a lawsuit. When a lawsuit is filed, your legal team must conduct “discovery,” wherein you will exchange information with your opponent, as well as presenting evidence and witnesses to a judge and jury. The judge or jury decides the verdict, which many times is reviewed in the appeal process. Arbitration can be frightening to someone who has never encountered it before, but if your lawyer is knowledgeable and experienced, it may your best chance to secure a fair settlement of an insurance claim. This is especially true if there is substantial money at stake. Filing a lawsuit gives you the upper hand in negotiation scenarios. For the most part, lawsuits are settled before going to trial.
