Auto Accident Insurance Issues
It seems that insurance is a part of our lives in many ways. We need insurance for our vehicles in order to drive legally on the road and we need health insurance if we want to see our doctor or be treated at a hospital. Life insurance is something most people purchase to feel comfortable that our families will be provided for financially if we should die, and we certainly want coverage on our homes and belongings should there be a fire, flood, or other cause of damage or loss.
Many people pay thousands of dollars each year to be insured and yet they rarely file a claim. People pay and pay their premiums faithfully every month, year after year, and if they don’t file a claim the only thing they get in return is peace-of-mind. For most people, it’s worth it but they do expect to be treated well when they file a claim.
What is insurance? Insurance is defined as the act, system, or business of insuring property, life, one’s person, etc., against loss or harm arising in specified contingencies, as fire, accident, death, disablement, or the like, in consideration of a payment proportionate to the risk involved.
According to the National Safety Council, the average driver in the U.S. will file a claim for a vehicle accident every 17.9 years. When an accident happens many people are clueless about what to do.
You have limited time and usually only one chance to resolve your interaction with an insurance company after a serious accident so you must maximize the opportunity to get what you need to fully recover. Some insurance companies drag out your settlement arrangements for far too long while others will make a very small offer immediately hoping to pay you far less than you should receive.
