Can I settle my property damage claim before my personal injury claim? | Guy S. DiMartino DC, JD, PA

Can I settle my property damage claim before my personal injury claim?

A. Yes. Car accident claims have two components: (1) property damage; and (2) personal or bodily injury. You can go ahead and settle your property damage claim with the other drivers insurance company before you settle your injury claim. If the insurance company requires you to sign a release, make sure that the release is only for the property damage claim.
