One regular question we receive from car accident victims is, “Should I speak to my insurance company?” As a policyholder, you have agreed to report a car accident to your insurance company. After a car accident with injuries, therefore, it’s important that you contact both your insurance company and an experienced Tampa personal injury attorney.
Car insurance policies require policyholders to report accidents as soon as possible after the accident takes place. Contact your insurance company immediately following the accident if you are physically able to do so. As you speak with your insurance company, review the following items:
- Your coverage and deductibles
- Exclusions in your policy
- Time limits for claims on your policy
In addition, every time you speak with your insurance company, document names, titles, phone numbers, and the conversation. Be honest and complete in answering questions to your insurer, but it’s not necessary to admit fault to your insurance company (or anyone else) after an accident. Be careful in giving recorded or written statements to insurance companies.
