Personal Injury Q&A

After the accident, should I contact the insurance company?

Regardless of whether or not it is immediately apparent that there is personal injury, after any accident, you should contact the insurance company. It is your responsibility to fully cooperate with your insurance company in the event of an accident. The majority of insurance providers request that policyholders immediately report all accidents, especially auto accidents.  This gives your insurance company an opportunity to collect important details regarding the auto accident. Not providing details to your insurance provider in a timely fashion may result in your accident not being covered. When you do contact the insurance company, try not to make statements regarding the party that was at fault for the accident. You should only state the facts of the accident and how the accident happened. In order to protect yourself, before giving any other details to the insurance company, it may be a good idea to consult with a personal injury lawyer.

Sometimes navigating through the aftermath of an auto accident, or any accident, for that matter, can be a trying experience.  It is a time when you may be trying to facilitate vehicle repairs, as well as seeking care for yourself, if personal injury occurred.
