When Should I Send My Demand Letter?

The demand letter is your signal to the adjuster that you are ready to settle your claim. There are different opinions regarding when to send it out, because the right time varies from case to case. Part of what the insurers pay for when settling a claim is to eliminate the threat of continued medical care expenses and pain and suffering.

Demand letters are traditionally submitted in paper form (hard copy), although arrangements may be made to communicate via e-mail to those insurance companies that elect to participate in electronic settlement processing.
