Yes, you can. However, ultimately it is the at fault party's insurance company that will pay for the claim. In such a case, you will file a claim under your collision coverage and be subjected to the deductible. Once the claim is settled, your company will subrogate the loss with the other company(i.e. get reimbursed). Once that happens, you will be provided your deductible back. If you go through the at fault party's policy, you would file the claim under the property damage of the policy.

Yes, you can keep the extra money you saved by finding a contractor to do the work cheaper than what the insurance company estimated. The insurance company prepared an estimate of the damage. If you could not find a contractor to do the work for what the insurance company estimated, you could ask them for more money. If they chose to pay you for the damage before it was fixed, they cannot ask for it back if you got the work done cheaper.

How do you accelerate the insurance claim process?

Speeding Up an Insurance Claim First, document when and to whom you spoke, and what about from the first report of the claim to every subsequent conversation. Next, call the claims office of the adjuster and let them know you want an answer or you will have to call their supervisor. If you hear nothing back after a day's time, call the claims office and ask for the supervisor. Explain the situation. Give that supervisor another day to find out what is going on then call back. If you still get no answer, you can call that person's supervisor or even your state's insurance department. All of this may or may not get a settlement to you quicker but you can be certain that complaints to supervisors and the insurance department are taken seriously. Insurance companies see a claim as their chance to perform, to prove the value of their service. Happy insures stay with their company and sometimes even recommend the company to others. Also, there are provisions in your policy that detail how a loss will be handled - so make sure you read it over carefully. The policy and state law spell out how long an insurance company has to furnish forms to you by which you can document the value of your loss, etc. From there, the impetus is upon the insurance company to settle the claim promptly, taking what time is needed to properly handle the claim, but no more. Is this length of time too long to take to settle this claim.

If the driver of the vehicle who crashed into you has insurance, you would file a claim with his or her insurance company, not your own, and this should not jeopardize your no claims bonus.

Check with your agent to be sure: policies vary from company to company and sometimes from policy to policy.

Can car insurance company sue you for not enough property damge insurance in louisiana?

The question is not altogether clear, but it seems to relate to the insurance concept of "subrogation". This is an equitable process by which. when an insurance company pays the claim of its own insured, it "inherits" the right to pursue the wrongdoer (presumably, you) to collect back what it paid. If the wrongdoer had some liability insurance, but not enough to cover 100% of the other insurer's claim, it still has the obligation to try to settle the claim "within policy limits" (meaning, to compromise the claim), if it is possible to do so so that you are not exposed to personal liability for the excess. Keep in mind that if you deny fault for the occurrence, your liability insurer normally still has the right to pay and to settle the claim as the insurance policy notmally gives the insurer the right to "control the defense".

What do you do when you are in an accident that was not your fault but the other driver's insurance company won't pay for the damages saying they cannot determine who was at fault?

The insurance companies usually settle each claim independantly. Your insurance will pay yours, the other co will pay theirs. But your insurance will go up. If you have only the required liability insurance your company will not pay for your damage. If you do not have comprehensive and collision, you may have to sue the at-fault driver to force his insurance carrier pay. If you have coverage of your own, you can file a claim with your agent and immediately collect the damages (less your deductible) and your company will sue his if necessary. If and when they win or receive a settlement, you will get your deductible back. Also, if the other driver is determined to be at fault, your rates should not increase.
