Auto Insurance Claims FAQs

What Should I Do After An Auto Accident?

First, make sure everyone involved is safe. If anyone is injured, call for medical help immediately. Gather all of the information you’ll need to make a claim before leaving the scene of the accident. You will need the following information to file your claim.

  • Name, address, and drivers license number of all drivers involved in the accident
  • Year, make, model, and registration number of all vehicles involved
  • Location and time of the accident
  • Name and telephone number of witnesses and injured parties
  • Photos of the accident and damage if possible

When you’ve obtained the necessary information report the claim to your carrier and fill out an operator crash report.

Do I Need A Police Report To File My Claim?

A police report can be helpful in filing your claim. However, it shouldn’t be more important than filing your claim immediately. Sometimes, it’s impossible to get the police report right after an accident and it’s crucial to file your claim right away. In Massachusetts, an operator’s crash report is required for losses over $1,000. You can get this document from your local police department or see our auto accident documents.

What Happens After The Claim Has Been Reported?

When the claim has been reported to your insurance provider, you will be assigned a claims adjuster who will contact you to schedule an assessment. Once the damage assessment is complete, you’ll receive a repair estimate along with a list of registered repair shops. You can then make arrangements for repairs. If additional damage is discovered by the auto technician, the shop should contact the insurance provider for supplemental appraisal to cover additional costs.

Does My Policy Cover My Cracked Windshield?

It depends on your coverage. If you purchased comprehensive coverage on your policy, glass replacements and repairs are covered. A glass claims specialist will take your information to ensure coverage applies.

Home Insurance FAQs

What Should I Do After A Property Loss?

Follow these important safety steps immediately.

  • If the property appears to be unsafe, leave the premises right away.
  • If you can do so safely, turn off electricity if there is standing water in the home. Never touch electric components while standing in water.
  • Report downed power lines or gas leaks to your utility company.
  • Attempt to protect property by boarding up openings and salvaging undamaged items.
  • Report the claim as soon as possible. (Information you’ll need includes time location and reason damaged occurred and a general description of the damage. Photos and videos are especially helpful.)
What Happens After I Report My Home Insurance Claim?

Once the loss has been reported, you will be assigned an independent claims adjuster who will set up an appointment to view your home. After the inspection, a repair estimate will be submitted to the carrier for review. Your claims adjuster will contact you with your eligibility details and a settlement agreement will be reached. Further, your settlement check will be issued based on the agreed settlement figure. Then, you sign settlement forms.

What If I Discover More Damage After The Appraisal And Claim Payment?

If more damage is discovered after your claim is paid, you should contact your claims adjuster immediately. Indeed, a reinspection may be required to make arrangements for a supplemental payment.

What Is The Role Of A Public Adjuster In An Insurance Claim, And Should I Hire One?

A public adjuster is a claims adjuster hired by the policyholder as an advocate for the policyholder during the appraisal and negotiation process. Whether you choose to hire a public adjuster is a personal choice, but it should be noted that you will be responsible for the cost since a public adjuster is an independent adjuster not hired by the insurance agency.
