Understanding Car Insurance Claims After Your Crash in Arizona
If you or someone you love was hurt in a car accident, there are two ways that you can seek a settlement. The first way is by pursuing the negligent party for damages directly and the second way is by making a claim with your car insurance company or with the other party’s car insurance company. Many claims will involve settlements with car insurance companies. While your insurer has an obligation to honor your claim and honor your policy, sometimes insurance companies might use formulas or computer programs that result in a lower estimated settlement than you might be entitled to receive. In order to avoid this situation, it can be helpful to hire a lawyer that (1) understands a fair estimate of what your claim is worth and (2) understands how to review your policy and present your evidence to your insurance company so that you can receive a fair settlement under the law.
Under Arizona law, all drivers are required to hold minimum insurance. The minimum insurance required is $15,000 per person for bodily injury, with a total minimum coverage of $30,000 per accident for bodily injury. Under the law, drivers must also have $10,000 per person in coverage for property damage. If a driver doesn’t have insurance, he or she can also hold a certificate of deposit in cash for at least $40,000 to cover the vehicle and injured individuals in the event of an accident.

What happens if the other driver doesn’t have the insurance as required by law? Your own uninsured motorist coverage may be able to cover you in this instance. You may also have the right to sue the uninsured motorist for damages. The Schmidt Law Group is an auto accident law firm in Arizona that can help you evaluate your options if you were involved in a collision with an uninsured motorist.
These are the minimum amounts of coverage as required by law, but in some cases, accidents can result in more serious injuries to individuals or more extensive property damage, and in many instances drivers have more coverage than the minimum. Ultimately, how much money you’ll receive for your car accident settlement will depend on the value of your claim (based upon your medical costs, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages), how responsible the other party is for your accident, and how much coverage the other driver has and/or how much he or she can afford to pay in damages. The Schmidt Law Group is an auto accident law firm in Arizona that can review all these contingencies to help you understand and embark on the next steps.
