When should I file a car insurance claim?

You should always file a car accident claim if other drivers were involved, even if the damage appears to be minor. One of the reasons your insurance company is there is to protect you against unreasonable demands and lawsuits from other drivers, which, unfortunately, can sometimes arise when drivers settle outside of their insurance companies.

If no other cars or drivers were involved in your accident, then it’s up to you whether or not you should contact your insurance company. If you do contact them, you run the risk of raising the cost of your insurance premium, especially if you’ve been involved in a number of other accidents in recent years. If the damage is minor, and the cost doesn’t meet your deductible, it might be worth it to pay for the repairs out of your own pocket.

What’s happens during the auto claims process? How long do insurance claims take?

The insurance claims process can be long, and sometimes frustrating, lasting anywhere between a few weeks to a few months. However, it’s a necessary process to make certain of a fair outcome for all parties involved. The length and complexity of the process usually depends upon the severity of the accident.

The most common first step after a car insurance claim is the assignment of a claims adjuster. He/she will usually get in touch with you within a few days after the accident. The adjuster will want to get your side of the story, take pictures of the damages to your car, talk to the other drivers involved, and more. Basically, the claims adjuster will be your go-to person throughout the claims processing.

Once fault is determined, the insurance agencies will negotiate over which company will pay for which specific damages/injuries.

How long do I have to file a claim after an accident?

You should always report an accident promptly, as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Each state has a Statute of Limitations within which your claim should be filed. It is always best to report a claim as quickly as possible after the loss occurs to avoid any unnecessary issues or delays.
