What Is a Liability Claim?
A liability claim is a type of insurance claim that arises when someone is injured due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another person. Liability claims can arise out of many different types of accidents, including car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and more. If you have been injured in an accident, you may be able to file a liability claim against the responsible party’s insurance company to recover compensation for your damages.
What Are the Different Types of Liability Claims?
There are two different types of liability claims: personal injury claims and property damage claims. Personal injury claims are filed by individuals who have been injured due to the negligence of another person. Property damage claims are filed by individuals whose property has been damaged due to the negligence of another person.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Liability Claim?
If you are successful in your liability claim, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In some cases, you may also be able to recover punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the responsible party for their negligence and deter them from engaging in similar conduct in the future.
