Request Form

We are proud to announce our new and improved request form that is streamlined and tailors to your needs. Thanks to Cognito Forms we are now offering some new features that our old request form did not:

*SUBMIT MULTIPLE CASES ON ONE REQUEST – We understand that your time is valuable. Rather than having to send one request at a time you can now click the “+ Add Case” button and add as many cases to that request as needed. This is especially helpful when you have multiple policies you need checked for the same accident.

*HAVE YOU WORKED WITH US BEFORE? – If you have, no longer will you have to fill out all of your firm’s information every time you submit a request. Now by answering “yes”, all the information we will need is your full name, firm name, and email address to submit your request. One more thing that will make filling out a request quicker and easier.

*POLICY EXISTENCE – Do you know the insurance carrier for your case? If not, click “No” and watch the request form transform before your eyes. By clicking “No”, all the fields requiring insurance information will automatically be dropped off leaving only the fields applicable to a policy existence request. No longer will you be required to fill out unnecessary fields with “N/A” or “Unknown”. We require a $100 dollar nonrefundable deposit on all policy existence requests and you will be required to pay the deposit upon submission of your request.

*PRICING AND FEES SHOWN ON REQUEST FORM – Never again worry about unexpected fees or the cost of running each individual search request. For your convenience we have listed all of our pricing next to the options on the request form so there will be no doubt of confusion about exactly how much you will pay with the successful processing of your request. As always, we DO NOT charge if we cannot process your request.

*IS THE DEFENDANT THE POLICYHOLDER? – If so, click “yes” and the fields for policyholder information will be swallowed up back into the request form only requiring you to fill out defendant information. Just one more thing saving you time and preventing you from providing unnecessary information.

We hope that you enjoy the new changes and that you’ll find it easier and more convenient to submit your case requests. Here at FCA we are committed to always looking for new ways to improve the experience for you, our valued clients. There are no lengths we won’t go to achieve this. We are always open to any suggestions or ideas you may have. If you have some you would like to share please email us at: Research@Fundcapitalamerica.com. As always, thank you for your business and we look forward to working with you!
