The Right Way to Make an Auto Accident Insurance Claim
Traffic accidents are so common that car accident insurance claims are almost like taxes: they are a fact of life that nearly everyone will have to deal with at one time or another. Like filing taxes, it’s important to know what you’re doing before you file a claim. A little know-how can go a long way when it comes to protecting your rights and getting the compensation you deserve.
Be sure you have thoroughly read and understood your auto insurance policy. Not all policies are created equal, and understanding the specifics of your personal coverage will help you make an informed claim. Unless you are seriously injured, you should call your insurance company immediately after an accident has happened. Give a detailed account of the collision, vehicle damage, and any personal injury. Be sure to take pictures of the damage, and collect names and contact information from all witnesses at the scene. You also want the name, phone number, and insurance details of the other person involved in the crash. Take notes during or immediately after your conversations with insurance agents, police officers, and anyone else involved.
Mistakes to Avoid When Dealing with Insurance Companies:
- Don’t lose your receipts. Hold on to all bills for vehicle repair and medical treatment.
- Don’t lie. Be honest throughout your claim to avoid any accusations of fraud.
- Don’t admit liability. This is not the same thing as lying. Relay the facts in a neutral manner without admitting fault.
- Don’t run out of time. There is often a time limit on filing an insurance claim, so act fast.
- Don’t sign, agree to, or accept any estimates, settlements, checks, or waivers with consulting an experienced attorney. You have a right to full and just compensation for property damage and personal injury.u
Proof of Damage in Car Accident Insurance Claim
All auto accident insurance claims hinge on proof of damage or injury. Insurance companies won’t simply take your word for it, but there are several types of proof they will accept. Proof of damage can come in the form of corroborating police reports and witness accounts, photographs of damage, doctor’s letters and medical bills, and other documented evidence that shows others can confirm your claim. Above all, an auto accident attorney experienced in insurance claims is your greatest asset.
