Take the Right Steps After Your Car Accident

Most insurance companies are massive, multi-million dollar corporations with untold resources at their disposal. More often than not, they have teams of lawyers waiting in the wings to handle their accident claims.

It's no secret that they're well versed in all Pennsylvania insurance laws, and, at the end of the day, they're a business that's out to make money. So, never assume they have your best interests at heart. Knowing how to handle an insurance company after an accident can be the difference between hundreds and thousands of dollars.

If you've been injured in a car accident, don't let pushy insurance companies force you into a low-ball settlement.

5 Tips for Dealing with the Insurance Company

  1. Be careful what you sign – Always thoroughly read any form from an insurance company. Be wary of what the other driver's insurance company asks you to sign. If you're unsure, contact a lawyer to examine the forms. Don't sign away your rights.
  2. Don't give a recorded statement – The other driver's insurance company may ask to record you for "accuracy purposes." They'll attempt to trip you up, confuse the details of your story, and use your recording against you later. It's your legal right to say, "No."
  3. Pro and cons of preferred mechanics – If you decide to use a mechanic that your insurance company doesn't use, you may have to negotiate costs. Using a preferred provider can save you the hassles of dealing with your insurance company, but it's at the possible cost of using an unfamiliar mechanic.
  4. The at-fault driver's insurance company – You are able to go through the at-fault driver's insurance company or your own. Just know that they're concerned more about their bottom line than your best interests.
  5. Know the claims process – With teams of dedicated agents, the insurance company knows exactly how to handle the claims process. However, the problem is that most drivers don't fully understand it. Having an experienced legal professional on your side can make all the difference in your case.

Insurance companies can be extremely difficult to deal with in certain situations. If you've been injured in a car accident and are dealing with an uncooperative or unfair insurance company, call us today. Let us handle the hassles, while you focus on feeling better.
