After being involved in a car accident in Nevada, filing an auto insurance claim is one of the first things that you should do. If you wait too long to file your claim, you don’t give the insurance company the time it needs to investigate your accident, and your claim will be denied as such.
To file your claim, do the following:
Get the other driver’s information. If you do not have the other driver’s information, including name, insurance information, driver’s license number, registration number, and vehicle make and model, your claim can be more difficult to pursue.
Call your insurance agent. As soon as possible after your crash, you should call your insurance agent and notify them of the incident.
Be ready with information. When you call your insurance agent and initiate the claim process, you should be ready with information. Have your insurance card out, as well as a copy of the accident report in front of you.
Take notes, ask questions, and follow up. When speaking with your insurance adjuster, write down the details of the conversation. Further, be sure to ask questions, such as whether or not you need to contact the insurance company of the other driver, how long your claim will take to process, and what steps you need to take next. Finally, be sure to follow up. If you don’t hear back from your insurance company about the status of your claim, call and ask.
