How do I sue an insurance company?

How do I sue an insurance company? When folks say, “How do I sue an insurance company?” You really usually have to sue the person first, which gives rise to the insurance company.

For example, if someone injured you or caused an accident and it was their fault, and you wanted their insurance to pay and they were refusing, you would actually have to sue that person in order to get that insurance company to get involved. A lot of folks have a difficult time doing that. They feel as though it’s very personal to sue someone based on negligence. But often that’s what insurance is for, and so the triggering event is actually initiating that lawsuit against the person.

If you think you have a claim, either against your own insurance company because they’re not doing something they’re supposed to do, or if you think you may have to sue someone else in order to get their insurance company to step in, you should call a lawyer as soon as possible and talk that through. There is often statute of limitations that are effective in situations like this. So sometimes a delay will prevent an insurance company from actually paying for damage or harm that’s done in the case.
