Tips for Preserving Your Auto Insurance Claim
If you are in an auto collision, it is important to take steps to preserve your insurance claim. This includes collecting evidence at the scene, such as photos and videos, and getting medical treatment. If you follow these three tips, you can make the process easier for yourself and ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
#1: Remain Calm & Assess the Situation
If you've been in an auto collision, the first thing you should do is remain calm and assess the situation. If everyone involved appears to be okay, then exchange insurance information with the other driver and take as many photos and videos as possible of the accident scene.
It's best to keep silent about the accident itself. Insurance companies often look for any reason to deny a claim, so your words could be used against you even if you didn't mean them that way. Apologizing, justifying, or explaining what happened can all be construed as admitting fault, so it's best to keep quiet and let your insurance company handle it.
#2: Seek Medical Treatment
It is important to seek medical treatment when necessary. Clinical documentation of your injury and treatment are essential for an injury claim. Without this documentation, it may be more difficult to prove the extent of your injuries and the amount of damages you are entitled to.
In addition, seeking prompt medical treatment can also help you to recover more quickly from your injuries. If you wait too long to seek treatment, your injuries may become worse and may take longer to heal. As a result, it is always best to err on the side of caution and seek medical attention as soon as possible after an auto collision.
#3: Avoid Settling Your Claim Right Away
Finally, wait a few weeks before considering settling your claim. Insurance adjusters are highly motivated to settle claims and close files. For this reason, an adjuster may offer to settle an injury claim within a week of the auto collision. Some injuries are not immediately present at the time of the auto collision and onset could take days.
As a result, you may not know the full extent of your injuries for weeks or months later.
