How to deal with insurance when it’s your fault.

When you are at fault in an auto accident, it is likely that you have to report it to your insurer. Facing your insurance provider after an accident doesn’t have to be as difficult as most make it. Although your insurer is going to ask questions, and might seem to drag their feet in helping you reach a conclusion, you have to know how to approach the accident, as well as your insurance provider.

Whether or not you are 100% at fault is not an issue; when you admit fault, you are likely going to take the brunt of the cost and penalties, and your insurance policy rates are likely to rise. Make sure you get your story straight, know what to say, and how to say it, to possibly avoid some of the high costs and penalties associated with accident claims.

If you are involved in an accident, and were at fault, you might not know how to proceed. These are a few simple tips to help you through the claim process, and get the damage repaired when you are dealing with insurance providers.
