Filing a Claim
When an individual is involved in a car crash, many different things may be going through his or her head. The first is probably assessing whether or not anyone in the car was injured. After seeing that no one in the car is critically injured, it is best to check if anyone in the other vehicle is injured, and at that point it you may find yourself reviewing the circumstances of the accident and who may be at fault for it.
After a car accident, the police should be called. Then any relevant information should be exchanged such as insurance details and contact information. After everything at the scene of the accident is worked out, you will need to file a claim with either your insurance or the other party’s insurance.
Here are a few things to keep in mind before you call the insurance company:
- Contact the insurance agent as soon as possible after the accident
- Get as many details about the accident as possible. Take pictures with a camera or cell phone camera and look for any possible witnesses to the accident.
- Save any receipts or bills for expenses relating to the accident. This includes vehicle repair work as well as any medical expenses.
If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence or malicious intent, then you may have the right to recover compensation for your losses.
