Car Accident Settlements and Car Insurance

If you're involved in a car accident, chances are you'll end up making some kind of claim for injury or vehicle damage (maybe both). That claim can get resolved in a number of ways, usually by a settlement that you receive from the at-fault driver's car insurance carrier. But some accidents involve claims made through your own insurance coverage, especially if you live in a "no-fault" state. In this section, we'll explain how car insurance comes into play in a car accident case, and what to expect during the claim process.
