  • If you've suffered minor injuries in a car accident that was someone else's fault, you should send a demand letter to the at-fault party's insurance company to try to settle your claim before you file a civil lawsuit.
    Use this sample letter as a model for drafting your own demand letter. Your letter should be tailored to your accident and injury situation. Each demand letter will be a little different. Your goal is to include your strongest argument that the accident was the other person's fault and that your injuries required treatment and caused you pain, inconvenience, and income loss.
