Why people love PeopleClaim

This is a great service and I was pleased with the outcome.

- G.B., California

I would like to say thank you so much for the job well done! The company gave me back my money, and now I'm happy. I know that I couldn't have solved this without your help.

- J.F., Washington

After weeks of their insurance company (reviewing) my claim for damage to my home that was directly connected to the construction work of XXX on my street, my claim was denied. They found XXX without fault and sent me a letter of refusal. In desperation I contacted PeopleClaim contacted XXX directly and within a very short time I received an e-mail from (the insurance company) reversing their decision and sending me the full amount I requested from their adjustor for the damages (cracked walls) to my home. I was able to have my home repaired. So Thank you PeopleClaim.

A new and better way to resolve any dispute – large or small

People claim is a totally new way to resolve disputes and complaints against businesses, professionals, landlords, employers, or anyone else who’s treated you unfairly – all online and without costly lawyers, courts, or time-consuming processes.

More than 50,000 businesses and consumers have used PeopleClaim to get their cases heard, get resolution, and avoid the expense and complication of traditional legal processes.

Finally: affordable access to justice for everyone and every case

While getting your case resolved will depend on the case details, reasonableness of your demands, and other factors, PeopleClaim gives you an effective and extremely low-cost first-line resolution option that puts the power of the court of public opinion on your side. We’ve helped thousands of consumers, patients, employees, and others get justice – in many cases after they were told that they had no chance of winning. Our goal is to provide online access to justice at a fraction of the cost of traditional legal processes. We’re leveling the playing field for everyone, regardless of their financial or legal resources.

  • Helps get your case heard at the highest levels of any organization.

Why people love PeopleClaim

Natalie F.
"It had been two months and she'd avoided us completely – and then the next day after I made a PeopleClaim she got back to me right away. If I hadn't had PeopleClaim I would have been out several hundred dollars."
Margie B.
"I know I didn't have any idea that I would have won the case, especially so quickly. They actually did something that I thought was impossible, and I'm thrilled."
Greg J.
"I filed a claim on Thursday afternoon; on Monday morning the corporate headquarters called and said 'We'd love to assist you and of course we'll give you a new computer.' It gave me terrific leverage."
