Can you file a small claims suit against a person whose insurance did not cover all your losses in an auto accident?
Depends on the state you are in. Talk to an attorney. We did here in California. Had court on 5/24/11. No one representedmy son, I got his case together for him. The other par…ty showed upwith 3 representatives from her insurance, and they lost. If youhave a strong case against them, I say take them to court. When theother party showed up, along with these other people. I reallythought we were going to lose. See what I had was the responsibleparty of the accident, giving her statement to the officer. Shetells him she did not know what color the light was when sheentered the intersection. No witnesses, no red light camera photo,no nothing. Just a video that I took when I got to the scene.
Do you mean "inform your insurance company you were in an accident"? Suppose you don't call them and the guy gets a lawyer and he calls the insurance company and sa…ys there were 6 people in the car and they all got whiplash? I imagine some insurance company expert will write you are required to notify them promptly. If you don't besides the danger of the claim escalating, there is the danger you are in violation of the policy requirements and they might, at least , argue they don't have to cover you. Or even keep you as a customer. And then there's the notifying police and the policy might vary by jurisdiction.
Yes, if a police report was filed then it is probably on your motor vehicle report. The good news is that with most insurance companies, if the insurance company did not pay a…ny loss or no more than $400 then the accident is not chargeable. If it was a one car accident, no problem, otherwise you may want to check to make sure nothing was paid to the other party or their company without your knowledge. As a matter of full disclosure, I own and operate a small Independent Insurance Agency and have for the part 22 years. Before that I worked as an agent for a direct writer insurance company.

How long do you have to file a claim after a minor auto accident when the other driver and you agreed at the site to settle without insurance involvement but they seem to have changed their mind?
Answer Funny enough I went through this same scenario - as well, I am an insurance broker. I was broad-sided by a driver who BEGGED me to leave the sc…ene and pay out of pocket for my minimal damage. I agreed and the next day he called and told me that he was filing a claim instead!! The reason why he did this was to evade being arrested, being that he was DRUNK come to find out later!!! NEVER agree to settle without written agreement or police witness!! You may file within 30 days depending on where you are . I'm in Canada but the 30 day rule is fairly commonplace.
How long do you have after a car accident to report and file a claim with the at fault's persons insurance company with no police report?
With any claim, you will want to report the incident ASAP. When I've had incidents, I've always done it same day. Anyhow, your specific policy will let you know how long you h…ave. and it's usually 30 to 60 days depending on the carrier. At any rate, you will want to contact your own insurance first and they should then contact the at-fault's carrier, unless you lack insurance which is completely dumb in the first place. The reason you will want to report ASAP is because most insurance companies require that you "keep the car from further incidents and damage" until the claim is settled and/or filed. The reason for this is to prevent fraud. I think the first paragraph is explaining how quickly you should tell your own insurer. The question, however, seems to suggest that the person at fault is another car driver and as such, in England and Wales, you have to commence a claim at court for personal injury within 3 years of the date of the accident. Please see the link below for the process of making a claim which will include contacting the driver at fault and the motor insurers. The standard wording in a personal auto policy offered in the US has no stated time period for the reporting of a claim. It will require that you are "reasonably prompt." What reasonably prompt means varies by jurisdiction and circumstance so reporting to your insurance company ASAP is the safest thing to do. Your policy will have a section that outlines your duties after an accident or loss. Failure to perform those duties can result in an automatic denial of your claim. So it is important to file promptly and to do the other things outlined in that section of your policy.
How long do you have to file a auto insurance claim in the state of California and is 3weeks to long to file a claim?
Most claims need to be filed within a year of the occurrence.
The insurance company has a certain amount of time (30-60 days, depending on your state) to give you an "answer", which could be "Accepted, here's your check", "Declined…, deal with it or sue us", or "We need some more time to investigate." There is definitely not a concrete time that you will magically get a check in the mail. Some important factors: Are you filing this claim on your own insurance policy or on the person who you think is responsible for the accident? If you file it on your own insurance company it will be much quicker, in general. If you file it on another person's liability policy, the insurance company will need to complete a liability investigation. This will generally consist of interviewing all involved parties, witnesses and ordering the police report (if applicable). The quickest this could take is perhaps 3 days (if no police report is to be ordered). Are there injuries? If there are injuries, especially if there are multiple people with multiple (costly) injuries, there may be a limits issue and it will take much longer. Also, if this is the other insurance company, they will need to talk with their insured to verify the details of the accident. If he doesn't answer the phone, the burden of proof will be yours to prove the accident happened and he was at fault.
Any insurance carrier requires to notify of a claim, or potential claim as soon a it happens. If it is a few days past, it is usually no big deal. There will be a reporting cl…aim clause in your policy. It there is personal injury-it should be called in right away.
How long do you have after a car accident to report and file a claim with the at fault's persons insurance company with no police repo?
Don't understand the part of the question about the "police repo," however, contact the at-fault party's insurance company ASAP - and if you have insurance coverage, contact Y…OUR insurance company as well. Both companies will want to begin investigations, take pictures of the vehicles, get copies of police reports and medical reports (if any injury), etc, etc.
When a passenger is injured in an automobile accident, and the driver of the automobile of which he/she is the passenger of, is "at Fault" for the accident, the passenger of t…hat vehicle has the legal right to file a claim against that drivers insurance carrier. If on the other hand, the driver of the other vehicle is "at fault", then the passenger of vehicle that is "not at fault", has the legal right to file a claim against the other driver's insurance carrier. And whenever there are injuries sustained in an automobile accident, you should contact personal injury attorney or law firm to represent you against the filing of your claim against any insurance carrier. "At fault" accidents are not final just because a citation has been issued. When a carrier receives a claim against their company, they will launch their own investigation of the cause of accident, and review the police report, and speak with any independent and passenger witnesses who can provide statements concerning how the accident happened. At the end of the carrier's investigation, which will also include, taking pictures of both of the vehicles damages, will compile all of the information they get, to try to determine at that point, who was at fault. If their insured is determined to be at fault, the carrier will pay the claim for which the passenger has filed against them. If the carrier determines that the other driver was at fault, then the carrier will not pay the claim and deny liability. If this happens, the passengers legal representatives will automatically withdraw their lawsuit filed on your behalf, and file the lawsuit against the other drivers insurance carrier. .

How long do you have after a car accident to report and file a claim with the at fault person's insurance company in Georgia?
One would think that they would get this done within a couple days at the most, if only to make certain that the claim would be processed. Call the insured's company and… ask them about this. Certainly, if one has waited past 30 days, the claim may not be honored.
