Can I sue an insurance company for refusing to pay for damages in an accident that wasn't my fault?

These are all very good questions.

First, you have the right to file a claim for the damages that were caused by the fault of the other driver.  However, in Arizona, you don’t sue the other driver’s insurance company.  

You sue the one who is at fault for causing the damage—the driver.

Once you have done this, his/her insurance company will pay for the attorney and pay any award or judgment you eventually receive. 

It will be your burden to prove your damages and the amount.  If you can do that, you will be entitled to receive payment from the other driver’s insurance company for your losses.
