Dealing With Car Insurance Companies

Dealing with the legality and red-tape requirements of filing a car accident claim with your insurance provider can be stressful and frustrating. When you make monthly payments to secure your protection in the event of an accident, there is no justification for your insurance provider’s hesitance or negligence to assist you with your claim.

Following an Accident

If you have been involved in an automobile accident, there are several things you should do to ensure that it is handled according to your best interest.

First, verify that all parties involved in the accident are okay. If medical help is needed, dial 9-1-1 immediately. After alerting medical personnel, it is imperative that you contact the police to file a report. Collect all information available to you, including the other party’s name, license plate number, and insurance policy information If possible, obtain the names and phone numbers of any eye witnesses who may be willing to testify about the event of the accident.

Collecting the right information at the scene of an accident can make filing a claim with your (or the other driver’s) insurance provider much easier. The sooner you deal with the paperwork, the sooner you can receive compensation for the wreck and put it behind you.
