How can I get my auto insurance company to pay the fair amount to repair or replace my vehicle?

The vast majority of insurance policies state that any dispute concerning the amount of payment must be resolved by arbitration. The procedures for doing so are outlined in the actual insurance policy.

How To Win Or Avoid Arbitration

To win arbitration or to avoid it, you must research the actual facts you intend on presenting. To simply state “my vehicle is worth $15,000 because that’s what I paid for it” would not hold merit. You must obtain and present written estimates for the current value of the vehicle and estimates of the damage caused to it from the auto or motorcycle accident.

Get estimates from several sources that support your position. If you can provide your insurance company with this information it is possible to receive a higher settlement without arbitration. Remember, it costs the insurance company money to arbitrate the claim. Everything is negotiable.

The Mini-Tort Rule In Michigan

Another important note: In Michigan, the mini-tort rule states that the most you can recover from the person at fault for damage done to your vehicle is $1000. This is reimbursement for your deductible and has a $1,000 cap.

    Starlynn Markiewicz
  • 28 years after my accident I received a letter from The Mike Morse Law Firm with an information brochure. I’m so glad I kept that letter because later on when AAA wrongly suspended my no fault benefits, I immediately contacted Mike. Mr. Morse took my case and did everything he said he would do. Now, more than 28 years after my accident, AAA is paying like they should be, and it’s all because of Mr. Morse’s hard work and expertise.
