Wrapping up 7 Tips for Reporting Car Accidents to Insurers, here are some final things that you should remember when you are working with insurers to file and resolve car accident insurance claims.
TIP 5: Don’t accept or admit blame in the car accident.
Whenever you are speaking with insurance company agents, make sure that you do not ever accept blame or admit to having caused (even partially caused) the accident. Such admissions can be extremely detrimental to your claim because they may be used to try to reduce your payout or even potentially deny your claim altogether.
TIP 6: Don’t accept a denial of your claim if you know you didn’t cause the accident.
Insurers may deny your perfectly valid car insurance claim after conducting their investigation. It’s important that you don’t take this denial as the last word in your claim. You have the right to challenge the denial, and you definitely should if you did not cause the car accident.
In fact, even if you partially caused the accident, you may still be entitled to compensation for your claim and, therefore, should not stop pursing it just because an insurance company says your claim has been denied.
TIP 7: Hire a lawyer to represent you and deal with your insurer.
At any point when you are filing a car insurance claim or you are dealing with insurers for a payout, hiring an attorney can only:
- Help you protect your rights
- Help you stand up to insurers
- Challenge insurance company agents when they make inaccurate, false or unfair statements about or decisions regarding your claim
- Help you obtain the full amount of the insurance settlement that you deserve.
