How do I use my Auto Insurance?

BY Wendy 9 Nov,2022 Insurance Claims Cars Accidents


If you have auto insurance, then when you are involved in an auto-related accident, the insurance company will compensate you for the accident based on a combination of factors such as the type of accident you were involved in and the type of auto insurance you have.


When to make an insurance claim?

After a car accident, you may be very nervous, resulting in no immediate way to calm down and deal with things like making a claim. But you don't actually have to file a claim right away because some of the damage or injuries may not become apparent until days or weeks after the accident. And each state has a different time frame regarding auto insurance claims, and this time limit may also vary depending on the type of damage involved. It is recommended that you consult your insurance company for specific time limits, and it is also important to note that your insurance company has the right to deny your claim if you exceed the time limit for filing a claim.


How do I file an insurance claim?

Although you do not have to file a claim with your insurance company immediately when an accident occurs, the claim process begins immediately after the accident, which is what you need to do before filing a claim with your insurance company.

1, After the accident, you and your passengers must evacuate to a safe place and call the police, and depending on the severity of the accident, choose whether you need to seek medical help.

2,Use your cell phone to take pictures of the accident and collect the necessary information: driver information, insurance information of the vehicle involved in the accident and any other information related to the accident.

3, It is important to note that you do not need to make a judgment about who is right or wrong in the accident, and even if you are at fault in the accident, do not just admit responsibility. The police and the insurance company will determine who is right and who is wrong.

4,Collect and submit the necessary documents for your claim, you can find a professional insurance officer to provide you with this information.

5, Keep up to date with the progress of your claim.

You may also choose to consult your insurance company to understand the steps required for your claim, which can help you avoid a lot of trouble as well as save time.


Does the insurance company have the right to deny a claim? 

Your insurance company has the right to deny your claim if, for example, the type of auto insurance you have purchased does not cover the damages associated with your accident, or if the amount required to pay for the accident is less than your auto insurance deductible, then the insurance company may not make a claim.
