How do I deal with the insurance company after an accident?
I got into a car accident and I'm really nervous about the claims process. I've heard stories about insurance companies scamming their customers and I really don't want that to happen. How should I deal with my insurance company to make sure I get the most out of my claim?
- Gather evidence about the accident, especially photos and videos.
- Communicate clearly, and keep records of your conversations. You may need to reference them later.
- Read all documents thoroughly, especially before you sign them.
- If you need to, get a lawyer to help with your claim.
