Regardless of how careful you are when driving, you cannot control the actions of other drivers, road conditions and other factors that may cause you to get into a car accident. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), most drivers in the U.S. get into some type of traffic accident once every five years. Given the prevalence of car accidents, it’s important that drivers:
- Maintain sufficient car insurance to cover them in the event they are involved in traffic accidents
- Know how to deal with insurance company agents when reporting car accidents in order to avoid having their legitimate claims unnecessarily denied or undercut.
While a few of our previous blogs this month focused on what you should do when dealing with insurance companies to report car accidents, in this blog, we will focus on what you should NOT do when dealing with insurance companies when it comes to making car accident claims. Do NOT:
- Submit written accounts of the accident to any insurance provider if you are not perfectly clear about the terms of your own auto insurance policy.
- Sign anything that you have not thoroughly read or that you may have questions about. If your insurance agent is asking you to sign something that you are not sure about, it may be time to consult with a lawyer who will have your best interests in mind.
