Well, another question that we get is when to notify the insurance company. Generally speaking you have to notify your insurance company very promptly afar an auto accident. If you fail to give them appropriate notice they can use that as a basis for later denying payment of benefits to you.

However, under certain circumstances it might be wise for you to get some advice before you contact your insurance company. If it’s been a serious accident or an accident where you’re fearful that you may have an injury or an injury claim as a result of it, it’s probably a good idea to also contact a lawyer and to discuss that with the lawyer. The lawyer would help you then to inform your insurance company promptly.
