John Kelly’s AVVO Rating:

We’re with John Kelly. John is a personal injury attorney in Phoenix, Arizona, and he’s agreed to answer an online question that was posted. This one, specifically how to negotiate a better car accident insurance claim check. With that said, John, let’s go into the question that was posted. This question is from Emily. Emily says, “Hello John. “I’m in the process of requesting a claim check “for a small car accident I was in two weeks ago. “It was the other person’s fault. “I do have a police report. “Can you provide me with any tips or advice “on what I can do to negotiate more money “from the insurance company? “Also, is there anything you could recommend “to speed up the process? “Thank you.”

– Okay. So Emily’s question is a pretty common question. She just wants to know what she needs to do after a small accident. What wasn’t addressed there with Emily is whether she was injured or not, but it sounds like she probably has a little property damage. So I’ll just kind of go over both. One that I don’t talk about a lot, which is something that actually people want to address right away, always, is the property damage, their vehicle, how to get it fixed, if it’s at the tow yard, those kind of things always bother people because they wanna get in a vehicle so that they sometimes can get treatment too. One of the things that people need to be aware of is that there’s actually typically two adjusters that are gonna handle their claim. One’s a property damage adjuster and the other one’s their bodily injury adjuster, and that’s on both sides for the accident. So one of the things that she can do right away is notify her insurance company that there was an accident, make sure that they’re aware. She can speak directly with the adverse insurance company, third party insurance, if she has that information.
