How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

Do Not Settle for Less than You Deserve
In the aftermath of an accident – as you are struggling to juggle doctor’s appointments, time out of work, and significant property damage – you may receive a call from the insurance company offering you a settlement. In nearly every case, this is a lowball offer that the insurance company hopes you will take without question.
The insurance company does not have your back – they are, first and foremost, a business. Before you answer another call from an insurance adjuster, reach out to the professionals at KDG. We can review your claim and – with the help of industry experts like doctors and financial advisers – determine how much compensation you are entitled to. From there, we can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
