Understanding the Insurance Claim Process
- At-fault driver reports the accident to his/her insurance company
- If you've been injured, we recommend reporting the accident to your insurance company as well – regardless of who's at fault.
- Don't give a recorded statement to anyone – even your own insurance company – until you speak with an attorney.
- Insurance company will determine who's at fault for the accident
- They may try to place responsibility on you, even if the other driver is at fault.
- If possible, make sure to document your accident. Take pictures and gather any information you can – or have a trusted friend or loved one do it.
- They may send someone with a check for lost wages
- Income Loss coverage may be on your policy, but it won't be active until after you've missed 5 days of work.
- Beware – Accepting the check may prevent the insurance company from giving you any more compensation.
- Speak with our attorneys
- We recommend seeking legal advice for your injury claim. One mistake can easily ruin your chance to recover fair compensation.
- Many drivers don't have adequate insurance coverage – making them Uninsured or Underinsured – if you aren't covered against this, then you could be stuck paying for their mistake.
