If you have been in a car accident, you may feel reassured to think that your insurance company will cover many of the expenses. However, this reassurance may be short-lived if your insurance company does not deal with you fairly. Your claim must be filled out accurately and you need to know the local market value of your vehicle as well as what your injuries are worth and whether you need any future medical expenses covered.
To help you make sense of this complicated process, Minnesota Auto Insurance Claims Attorneys, of TSR Injury Law, would like to offer the following information.
If You Have Been In a Car Accident
After making sure everyone involved in the accident is all right, the first thing to do is exchange insurance information with the other driver. Be sure to get the driver’s name and phone number, as well as their insurance provider and the provider's phone number. You should also get names and phone numbers from anyone who witnessed the accident.
If you are contacted by the negligent driver's insurance adjuster, you may want to consider contacting a Minnesota Auto Insurance Claim Attorney before you speak with the adjuster.
Do not sign any forms without checking with an experienced attorney. You may be signing away your rights to a fair settlement.
How a Minnesota Auto Insurance Claim Attorney Can Help
The truth is that insurance companies are not primarily concerned with helping you.
The insurance company would like to minimize the payment you receive in order to maximize their profits. An experienced attorney can advise you on your legal rights and ensure that you do not commit costly mistakes during the claims process. If necessary, your attorney can also help you take legal action against an insurance company that refuses to treat you fairly.
