Atlanta, GA asked in Insurance Bad Faith and Contracts for Georgia

Q: What type of lawyer do I need to look for for suing an insurance company that is not my own?

An Insurance company is refusing to reimburse me for a rental car that I used why my vehicle was being repaired after being involved in an accident that was caused by there insured driver. They have only reimbursed me about a third of what the total cost is and refuse to tell me why they wont reimburse the rest.

Thank you for the help.

A: A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. An accident or civil litigation attorney should be able to handle something like this. As for the carrier's position on low reimbursement, additional information is needed. If they don't agree with you on the respective liabilities, that could be one reason for the low figure. But that's only a general guess. An attorney could advise more definitively after seeing the police report and the PD adjuster's report. Good luck
