Do I have to provide a deposition or statement if I am in pro per for an auto injury claim?

by admin on June 21, 2010

If I decide to handle my own auto personal injury case, do I have to provide a statement to the other AT FAULT insurers insurance company? I was an injured passenger in my sister’s car and the other person was found to be 100% at fault by their own insurance company. Too, can I file a claim with my sister’s insurance and my own insurance? I am not with the same auto insurance carrier (it’s been about 2-3 months that I switched), but can I still claim with them? Thanks!

Some of my answer may depend on your state…. Unless you have an attorney, the only way for the at fault insurance company to evaluate your injury claim is to obtain your statement and assess your injury, medical treatment and bills. If your sister was not at fault, you can file a medical claim on her no-fault insurance coverage (PIP) if she has it, but you can’t file a bodily injury (liability claim) against her policy if she’s not at fault. If her PIP coverage exhausts, you may file an excess claim on the PIP coverage on your auto policy which was active at the time of the accident… hope this helps 🙂
