Handling insurance disputes following a car accident

Being involved in a car accident in Rochester, Michigan, is never easy. There's so much that you need to take care of afterward involving insurance claims. If you are injured, that gives you even more to take care of due to rehab, recovery and medical claims. Here are some tips for handling insurance disputes following a car accident in Michigan.

One of the best ways to handle an insurance dispute following a car accident in Michigan is to acquire your own appraisal of the damage. Insurance companies conduct their own appraisals, or pay to have them done, and they will be lower than most private appraisals. You are allowed to get your own appraisal done of the damage. Make sure you acquire it from a repair shop that you trust.

It's also possible for you to take the insurance company to small claims court. This is a great way for you to fight for the compensation that you think you deserve following the accident and the damage that was caused. This is best done with the help of an experienced attorney.

Another option to handle insurance disputes following a car accident is to take the issue to mediation. This is when you sit in front of a neutral third party who will listen to your case and the case made by the insurance company. There's no guarantee that you will be able to solve the issue at mediation but it is worth a try.

When you are involved in a car accident in Michigan you need to exchange personal information with the other party. This will be helpful in filing a claim and ensuring that you receive the proper compensation.
