Filing a claim
There are some best practices to make sure your claims process goes smoothly and as quickly as possible.
First, after an accident, call the police. If there are injuries, call 911. If not, try to call the non-emergency line. They document everything that has happened and file an official police report so there’s no he-said she-said.
Then, call your insurance agent or company so they can start the claims process.
After that, start taking pictures of all damage to provide the agent working your case.
An insurance adjuster will investigate the claim, issue an estimate for the repairs, and determine if the car is a total loss. Your adjuster may or may not investigate in person.
Make a note of any deadlines for paperwork and ask to be notified of any updates in your claim.
