How do you file a third party insurance claim with Allstate?

How do I make a third-party insurance claim with Allstate? The person who hit my car has Allstate, but I have Farmers. I want to file a claim and get my sedan fixed ASAP.

Answer
Filing a third-party claim is much like filing a claim with your own insurer. However, you should contact your provider and tell them about the accident first, even if you’re not at-fault.
This way, Farmers can help contact Allstate for you. (You’re also contractually required to contact your insurer after any incident with your car). If you still want to call Allstate yourself, you can: just give them the other party’s name and policy number, if you have it.
Each company handles claims differently, but usually an insurance adjuster will conduct an investigation into the claim. You will likely have to share details, including photos, to verify who’s at-fault and the extent of the damage.
If you’re looking to switch car insurance companies after filing the claim, Jerry can help. As a licensed broker, Jerry will help you compare competitive quotes from dozens of insurers, cancel your old policy, and register for a new one.
