How do I claim car insurance after a wreck?
How to claim insurance after a car wreck can be a complicated process. Especially if you are not an attorney and you are not used to handling that. Certainly, with your own car insurance, there are benefits that are available to you that you might not think of. For example, there are things called PIP, Med Pay benefits, both in Kansas and Missouri, that are available to you to tap into even if a wreck is not your fault. So, we always encourage people to do that.
As far as contacting the other side’s insurance company, the person who is at fault for a wreck, we do not recommend reaching out to that person or that company directly. Their goal is to try to see that you get as little money as possible in your case. That way, they pay out as little coverage as possible to you for your damages that you can legally seek.
That is why we recommend contacting us. Contact an attorney, and see what rights you have available to you. If you have been in an accident and are looking to submit a claim, give us a call at Dickerson Oxton today. We are here to help.
