Just because you are filing a claim with an insurance company does not necessarily mean that you are suing somebody.
Often times, a claim can be filed with the insurance company and settled out of court without the necessity of a law suit ever being filed, provided you decide that is what you want to do.
And when a lawsuit is filed, we are asking the insurance company to pay you compensation, not the person who caused the accident, unless specific facts dictate that we should.
The insurance corporations collect premiums from their customers. That money sits in an insurance corporation bank account so that if one of their customers hurts somebody, there will be money to make sure the injured person is treated fairly.
The compensation for your injury comes out of the money that the insurance company has collected from the premiums that they charge.
Therefore, if you are injured, there are often many different ways that you can be fully compensated without ever having to go to court, or even having to file a lawsuit, simply by having your attorney obtain the fair compensation from the applicable Insurance Corporations.
