Car Accident Insurance Claims

By Weinstein & Scharf P.A.  Oct. 15, 2012 4:32p

Following a car accident, you will most likely be dealing with insurance companies, your own and / or the other driver's. This process is necessary in making a claim to recover the damages and losses you may have incurred as a result. Having detailed and accurate information concerning the accident is vital to this step. If possible, you should get as much information as you can at the scene, such as names, addresses, driver's licenses, vehicle identification numbers, including photos of the damaged vehicles and anything else that is relevant to the accident. You should also have photos of any injuries you sustained. Furthermore, you should not discuss whose fault it was with anyone – just state the facts of what occurred with any police officer who will make the report or anyone else present. An investigation into the matter will be conducted by the insurance company to accurately determine this issue.

Other helpful points to insure the claims process is facilitated include knowing your insurance policy and whether you have additional policies which may cover you in the event of an accident or personal injury. You should keep records of any receipts of expenditures that are related to your injuries and any conversations you have with insurance company personnel. You should never sign anything or agree to anything from an insurance company that you feel is unfair. When discussing the accident with insurance company personnel, always tell the truth to avoid any type of allegation of fraud.
