Settling a car accident claim can be a lengthy, draining process. You cannot afford to make any mistakes that can delay or deny the claim settlement that you rightfully deserve. We share some of the most common but avoidable mistakes that can jeopardize your car accident claim.
1. NOT CALLING THE POLICE
It is wrong to fail to notify the police when you are involved in a car accident that results in losses you will file a claim for. If the other party involved in the accident tries to settle the matter without involving the police, never agree to this.
Police are trained to investigate the incident, gather evidence, identify witnesses, and even ascertain the cause of the accident. Their report is one of the invaluable resources that firms offering legal representation and insurance companies look into when processing your settlement claim.
