How do I file a car insurance claim with GEICO?

I got into an accident, how do I file a claim with GEICO?

I’m sorry to hear about your accident.
Thankfully, it’s a fairly easy process to file a claim with GEICO. GEICO will specifically want the following information when you file your claim:
  • The date, time, and location of the accident
  • The names, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance policy numbers of anyone involved
  • Photo documentation of the accident scene and damage
  • Copies of the police and/or accident reports
Once you have this information, you can call them at (800) 841-3000 or file the claim via their mobile app. Once you’ve filed, they’ll give you a claims number, which will allow you to keep track of the claim’s process.
Getting into an accident is very scary. To keep you safe and help you in the future, consider a roadside assistance membership. The Jerry app offers a roadside assistance membership with industry-leading roadside assistance, including benefits like towing, lockout service, and a mechanics hotline.
