Every driver’s top priority is safety on the road. An accident, such as a collision with another vehicle or object, is one of the worst things a driver can face. At worst, road incidents can result in serious injury or impairment, severely damage property, and cause both injuries and property damage to another driver, passenger, or pedestrian on the road.
Your auto insurance policy protects you from the financial impact of property damage and third-party liability. A more comprehensive plan also equips you with repair or replacement coverage for personal and commercial property, accident benefits, and resources for sustaining the legal fees and settlements in a liability claim. These benefits are accessed when you successfully file an auto insurance claim following an accident.
An auto claim checklist is the best way to keep track of all the steps you need to take to ensure a successful claim and access the coverage benefits of your auto insurance policy. This checklist reminds you of everything you need to do at the scene of the accident, and the documents that need to be filed following your recovery.
Keeping track of this information is necessary for the police report. This helps the police with the investigation and to determine who is responsible for the accident. Your auto insurance company will also require this information for their own investigation in order to grant your claim.
You need to file an auto insurance claim for any accident or damage to your vehicle, even if you weren’t driving, such as in the case of a natural disaster or impact from a moving object while your car is parked. Filing a claim ensures that you are compensated for the damage and receive the appropriate coverage benefits to avoid out-of-pocket expenses.
Even if you were not found to be at fault, an auto insurance claim helps ensure that repairs or parts replacement and accident benefits are guaranteed. This is safer than dealing with an at-fault driver who offers to pay for the damage without going through insurance.
