On average, how long can I expect to wait for my car insurance claim to be processed?

I've never had to file a car insurance claim before, so I'm wondering how long it usually takes to process a claim.

Thanks for the question! There isn’t really an average number that can be applied to finalizing a claim. It depends on the company, the accident, and how severe it is. Some claims can go on for years, while others can be finished in a few weeks.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
