Making an auto insurance claim can be a complex process, but if you get as much detail as you can right after an accident, you can make it so much easier. Provided that your MA car insurance policy adequately covers you, making a claim can be a relatively pain-free experience. There are several things you can do to make it easier.
First, get details of the other parties involved in the accident as soon after the accident as possible. Get personal details such as name, contact number and address, and also the name of his or her insurance company.
If you are involved in an accident with another motorist, you could have differing accounts of what happened. To help resolve any disputes, it’s wise to find witnesses and get their contact details. They can help determine who is in fact liable.
Get details of the location of the accident, including the name of the street and the type of road, as well as any signage or traffic lights. Take a quick photo of the accident if it’s safe to do so. These days, most cell phones have a camera function, so it’s easy to visually record the scene of an accident.
If you get all the details you need, your MA car insurance claim can be processed without unnecessary delays.
