Should I Notify My Insurance Company If I’M In An Accident?

Q: Should I notify my insurance company if I’m in an accident?

A: If you have been involved in a West Palm Beach auto accident, it is your obligation to notify your insurance company. Most insurance companies require that their policyholders report all auto accidents. The insurance company will want to gather some basic information about the accident for their records. Your insurance policy obligates you to cooperate with your insurance company; avoid making statements about who is to blame for the accident, however, especially if you believe you may be at fault. Only relay facts about the details of the accident.

Your insurance company may also ask you for a recorded statement. Although you are required to cooperate with your insurance company, you are not required to give a recorded statement. It is usually not in your best interest to give a recorded statement, as anything you say can be used against you. If your West Palm Beach car crash was caused by the negligence of another, you should seek the advice of a qualified West Palm Beach auto accident lawyer.
