After getting into a car accident or any type of traffic accident, one of the most important things to do soon after the accident will be to contact your insurance company to report the accident and file a claim. While insurance company agents may be very helpful in guiding you through this process and getting you a payout on your claim as soon as possible, in some cases, agents may be far less helpful; in fact, in the most frustrating cases, agents may flat-out deny legitimate car accident claims for minor (or unreasonable) reasons.
As a result, it’s crucial that policyholders take the time to learn how they should deal with insurance companies after a car accident. By knowing how to deal with insurance agents, policyholders can minimize the chances that their legitimate claim will be denied, undercut or somehow delayed.
The “Do’s” of Dealing with Insurance Companies after Car Accidents
When it comes to dealing with insurance agents after car accidents, you should:
- Report the accident as soon as possible. If some injury prevents you from being able to immediately contact the insurance company, then be sure to do so as soon as your health is no longer in danger.
- Thoroughly review your car insurance policy and ask your agent about your policy so that you are aware of what may or may not be covered.
