Dallas Auto Accident Insurance Claim
What You Should Know About Filing An Auto Insurance Claim
Filing an auto insurance claim can be a real pain. However, in order to get the compensation you deserve for the accident, you must go through this procedure, therefore you should go through it correctly.
First, you should warn the insurance company about the accident immediately after it occurs. Your first priority is to make sure that your passengers are okay, which means a medical visit may be necessary. Following this, you should call your insurance company and inform them of your accident. This would be a good time to go through your insurance policy and acquaint yourself with the exact terms of your auto claim.
Secondly, you should fill out a detailed auto accident claims statement. Give as much detail of the accident as you can, and support your claim with pictures, damage to vehicles and so forth. Include all medical reports of your injuries, no matter how small you think they may be. Furthermore, it is important to document the names and contact information or any witnesses to your car accident.
Next, it is important that you keep track of all the events that are relevant to your claim. Discussions you have with the police, your insurance agent or any other records must go into writing. If your claim turns out to be settled in court, these items will all be evidence.
Finally, be honest with your insurance company. If you aren't, your claim might be disqualified due to fraudulent circumstances.
