Can I Fire My Insurance Company While My Claim is Pending?

Thursday, June 23rd, 2022

If you have a pending claim with your current insurance company for an auto accident, you may be wondering if it is possible to change to another insurance company.  Perhaps you found a company with better rates, or perhaps you are unsatisfied with the service from your current insurance company.

In California, you can change to another insurance company while you have a claim pending, but it is dependent upon when you made your claim and what insurance company you had at the time when the claim occurred.  That may not necessarily be the company insuring you when you decided to file the suit.

You could be under the first policy’s coverage, be involved in a motor vehicle accident, and then recognize a better option with a second insurance company and switch to their policy going forward.  We have recent client examples that have switched to a new insurance company while the old company continued to handle their case for the collision, and they saved money with the new company’s better rates.  So yes, you can change to a new insurance company while you have a pending claim with the old company.  Watch the video to learn more.

Can The Other Party’s Insurance Adjuster Call Me If I Have Hired an Attorney?

Saturday, April 16th, 2022

You’ve hired an attorney, but the insurance adjuster is calling you directly, and you’re wondering whether they can still do that.  Insurance adjusters will typically resist calling you directly, but there is not a rule prohibiting the other side’s adjuster from doing so.

They may not know whether you have hired an attorney.  If they do contact you directly, it will most likely be in writing.  This way, the communication can be forwarded to your attorney intact, as opposed to relying on you to retain and process information spoken to you over the phone.  Be on the lookout for any such communications in your mail.

You should respond by immediately letting them know that you have hired an attorney and providing the appropriate phone number.  You should also let your attorney know they should be expecting a call from the other side’s insurance adjuster.  Watch the video to learn more.
