Steps To Claim Car Insurance After A Road Accident


Buying and maintaining a car is expensive, so you would not want anything to happen to it. However, god forbid, if you were ever in an accident, you would want to recuperate as much money as you can. Therefore, it is essential for you to know how to properly file a claim for car insurance. So, let’s check out the process of filing a claim.

The process of Car insurance Claim

The first thing to do after the accident is to contact your car insurance company. You will need to enquire the required paperwork if you do not know it, as asked by the investigator. It may be possible that the investigator may need to have your car transported to a garage. The garage would be of someone they know and trust. It is done to gauge the estimate of damage. If you have a cashless policy, the insurer may get your car repaired as soon as possible. However, if you decide to file a claim for reimbursement, then you will need to get repairs done yourself. You can submit the bills incurred for the repair to the insurance company and the company will reimburse the money after verification of the damages as well as the documents submitted for the reimbursement.
