In the Immediate Aftermath
In the aftermath of a car accident, you’ll feel as though you have a million things to deal with: police officers, the other parties involved, ambulances and medical help, and caring for your car. It can be common to forget about contacting your insurance company altogether, which can end up being extremely detrimental depending on how long you wait. If it’s possible and safe to do so, make sure you contact your insurance company as soon as possible once your accident happens.
Know Who Your Claim Adjuster Is (and What They Do)
Insurance companies are likely to request proof of any expenses that you submit with your claim. They may also want to prove that the damage done to your car was caused by the accident, not any other factors; if you have “Before” photos of your vehicle to contrast with the “After” photos from the scene of the accident, that’s a great way to protect yourself and your claim.
