Filing a claim after a car accident can be a complicated process. While you assume the insurance company will automatically cover you up to the amount of damage you’ve sustained, that’s not always the case. In some cases, insurance companies may attempt to give you the run-around: claiming their driver is not the one responsible for the accident; trying to give you a settlement offer worth significantly less than you really deserve; perhaps delaying payment for your claim for far longer than you should have to face.

What Injuries Are Covered by Liberty Mutual Insurance Claims?
Liberty Mutual Insurance deals with car, home, and rental insurance claims, with car insurance claims being among the most common. These claims may include:
- Property damage
- Personal injury
- Long-term or permanent disability
If you injured yourself and need to work with Liberty Mutual Insurance, it’s important to work with a qualified attorney in order to ensure that you receive the full compensation you need for your injuries. Claims may include trip and fall accidents, auto insurance accidents, and injuries sustained in someone else’s home due to their negligence.
What Benefits Can Be Recovered from Liberty Mutual?
There are several types of damages that you may recover from Liberty Mutual after an accident. These may include:
Property damages. Are you covered by Liberty Mutual? Did the individual who damaged your property have Liberty Mutual Insurance? When Liberty Mutual covers the individual responsible for property damage, you may be owed compensation through the insurance company for damages to your home or vehicle.
Compensation for injuries. If your injury occurred in a car accident with a Liberty Mutual driver or if your injury occurred in the home of someone who has a Liberty Mutual insurance policy, you may be owed compensation for those injuries, including payment for your medical care, compensation for lost wages, and funds to cover pain and suffering.
Funeral and burial expenses. It’s not unusual for wrecks and other types of accidents to lead to significant injuries and even death. If someone you love died in an accident, Liberty Mutual may be responsible for offering compensation for reasonable funeral and burial expenses for your loved one.
What Are Common Issues With Liberty Mutual Insurance Claims?
Like most insurance companies, Liberty Mutual is a for-profit business. As a result, the company may not always jump at the chance to pay out the full amount on any claim: often, claimants need thorough evidence, documentation, and representation to fully collect on a policy. There are several strategies that Liberty Mutual may use to reduce their liability.
Attempting to prove that someone that isn’t their client is responsible for your injuries. Proof may include attempting to shift responsibility to you as well as trying to implicate someone else in the case of your injuries. Working with a lawyer can be the most effective way to determine who is really responsible for your injuries.
Providing a low settlement offer. In many cases, Liberty Mutual, like other insurance companies, may provide a low initial settlement offer. This settlement offer may not cover the full amount of damages you may incur as a result of your injuries, and it may leave you struggling to pay for your medical bills and other expenses.
Claim delays. The claims process can frequently involve delays, complications, requests for more information, or outright stalemates. Unfortunately, this can lead to significant financial problems on your part, since it may leave you struggling to pay for medical bills, expenses incurred as a result of the accident, or your regular expenses during this difficult time.
What Will a Lawyer Cost Me?
