There is something that comes between an accident and an insurance settlement – an insurance claim. This post will help you navigate the claim process to make sure you have everything you need.
Let Them Know Early: Most insurance companies require that you let them know about an accident within 24 hours of it happening. This includes the other driver’s insurance company too, so never forget to swap info.
Prove Whose Fault it Was: This means collect as much info from the scene as possible; photos, witness statements and contact info, a police report. All of this will be crucial to your end settlement.
Prove You Were Hurt: Just like at the scene of the crime, you’ll want to gather all the evidence you can to back up your injury claims.
Doing this work right away will make everything else down the line that much easier.
