Common Auto Insurance Questions
Quality auto insurance will minimize your personal financial losses for such problematic losses, and you’ll be able to recover from these issues without costing yourself an arm and a leg.
How do auto insurance deductibles work?
The deductible is the amount of money the insured person pays out of pocket toward covered repairs after an accident. After the deductible is covered, the insurance company pays the claim according to the terms of the policy.
Liability claims do not require payment of a deductible.
How do auto insurance claims work?
Call your agent or notify your insurer immediately if you are involved in an accident. They can help you initiate a claim to get repairs completed as quickly as possible.
You’ll need the following information to file a claim:
• Your policy number
• Full names of everyone involved in the accident
• Details of the accident
• The police report
• The other driver’s insurance company and policy number
• Photographs of any property damage
After you file an auto insurance claim, you’ll be assigned an adjuster who will help assess the damage and facilitate coverage according to your policy’s terms.
Each insurer handles claims differently, so it’s crucial to communicate with your adjuster about details such as whether you must take your vehicle to an approved mechanic, when you pay any deductibles and how long you have to complete the repairs.
What does auto insurance cover?
