What Not to do When Making an Auto Insurance Claim

If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, it won’t be long before you are making a claim with your insurance company.

While this sounds simple enough, there are many challenges to contend with. Here are some things you should avoid during this process:

  • Don’t make a written or recorded statement until you fully understand the situation, your policy, and your coverage.
  • Don’t feel obligated to accept the initial estimate provided by the insurance company.
  • Don’t sign anything until you are sure of what you are doing and have had an attorney provide you with guidance.
  • Never accept a “final payment” unless you are okay with the idea.
  • Don’t let your insurance company off the hook. You have coverage and they need to live up to the legal obligation of the policy.
