If you’ve been in an accident caused by someone else…

You were involved in an accident and were not at fault. This means you will likely have to deal with another person’s insurance provider, not just your own. This can add to the stress already caused by being in the accident. How do you go about getting the information you need, what do you do, should you call your own insurer? These are a few questions that might be buzzing around in your head.

Once you have made sure all parties involved are safe, you can go about dealing with insurance companies and filing your claim. Due to the fact that the insurer is not covering you, they might not have your best interests in mind. With this said, if you have the right information, and if you work quickly, your claim may be processed quicker and the entire process might go a lot smoother.

If you are not at fault, you have to take the right steps in reporting the accident, and contacting the right people to get the ball rolling. These are a few tips for dealing with an insurance provider after an accident has occurred, by no fault of your own.
