Select relationship to original case while entering a new case.
There may be times when you are filing a case and are unaware of the original case being filed against you. When you enter a new case, the system will scan for potential related and duplicate filings.
The data elements used by Online Filing to search for related and duplicate cases include:
Date of Loss
You will be shown a list of cases that are possibly related or duplicate claims. To mark your new case as a Counterclaim, simply select Counterclaim from the drop down menu provided.
If you are filing a related claim that is not a Counterclaim, e.g., a MedPay case from the same loss as an existing Auto case, select the Companion Claim option. This will ensure the cases are heard together by the AF Panel.
