Quick Reminder

Car Insurance Claims Do’s & Don’ts

  • DO gather as much details and evidence as possible. Get the other driver’s contact and insurance information, the contact details of the witnesses, police report, medical report, and photos or videos of the accident scene and vehicles involved.
  • DO thoroughly review your insurance policy. Know the coverage you have, your insurance limits and any time limit for insurance claims.
  • DO contact your insurer to report the accident. Do this right away and give them only the basic facts.
  • DO save all your receipts and bills including medical bills, repair bills and other expenses incurred as a result of the accident.
  • DON’T admit fault – not to the other driver, to the police or to the insurance adjuster.
  • DON’T give a statement to the insurance company until after you have sought legal advice.
  • DON’T sign any waivers or release form until you obtain legal advice.
  • DON’T be quick to accept the insurance adjuster’s initial settlement offer. Consult a lawyer first to find out what would be fair settlement amount.

Tips to Maximize Your Car Accident Settlement
