Policy Limit Search Done Right

Insurance Research Services

Insurance of any kind is a tricky subject. Although lawyers do have adequate training to decipher these policies and understand their limits, insurance research requires time and effort. Most attorneys are overwhelmed with all their litigation and case prep tasks that take precedence over researching their client’s insurance policies and the policies of those who caused the accident.

Why Is Insurance Research Important?

Insurance research will allow you, the attorney, to maximize the settlement your client gets in their lawsuit. You will gain clear visibility into the policy limits that support a claim soon after taking on a new client. Additionally, you will have clear understanding of the plaintiff’s insurance liability limits, which will help you demand a fair and just settlement.

Why Choose Fund Capital America’s Insurance Research Services?

With Fund Capital America, your law firm will have access to highly-skilled professionals who are knowledgeable in insurance policies, terms, conditions, and the type of information that is pertinent to your case. They will conduct a quick and through research of the insurance policies, allowing you to focus on your other pressing matters. We provide research services for every type policy, ranging from auto to commercial policies.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

NEED CLARIFICATION?

There is absolutely no charge to you if we cannot obtain your requested results. However, it is important to note that a result of “No Coverage” or “Cancelled Policy” will be charged full price. This is because a search that results in these findings verified by the date of loss is still considered to be a successful result, even though we did not find applicable limits. 

*Policy Existence searches require a nonrefundable $150 deposit in which you will not be reimbursed upon an unsuccessful search. If your Policy Existence search returns no results, there will be no additional fees.

If you do not know the at-fault party’s insurance carrier, no problem! We will research your case as a Policy Existence request. This means that we will search all applicable data relating to the claim to uncover an active insurance policy on the date of loss. If results are found, you will be provided with the insurance carrier, the policy number, and the policy effective dates. This service does not include a search for policy liability limits, however you can request those for an additional fee.

Specialty carriers consist of a list of insurance carriers that require more extensive time and attention. Because of this, they are more expensive for us to research and will require an additional fee of $30 upon completion of successful results. These specialty carriers include:

AAA, Mercury, Farmers, Foremost, 21st Century, State Farm, and Bristol West. 

We do not accept USAA or Wawanesa search requests.

We will gladly refund your money upon verified proof of incorrect results. We stand behind our results 100% and aim for complete accuracy each and every time, however there may be instances of discrepancies between us and our third party data servers. In such instances, we will request that you provide us with a copy of the report indicating differential coverages. We will then rerun your search to verify our findings and locate the error.

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 $150 dollar non refundable 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!
