Do Insurance Companies Look at Witnesses for Car Accident Claims?

Do Insurance Companies Look at Witnesses for Car Accident Claims?

We’ve discussed before how witnesses can be very important in helping you through your car accident claim. They’re often available to provide details of the accident which can help aid in proving liability and negligence.

While this is most often the case with cases that go beyond the claims-filing process, what happens when the insurance company receives information about witnesses? Do they take them serious? How do insurance companies consider the validity of the witness?

Looking at Background and History

Even if the witness is being truthful regarding your incident and how everything occurred, the insurance company may look into the individual’s past to determine if there is any history of lying or questionable character.

If the witness has a bad history, the insurance company may avoid inquiring for their statement simply due to the lack of validity in their claims. Instead, they’ll skip over this witness and make a determination based off what they heard from the other parties involved.

Why It’s Still Important to Have a Witness

You never truly know what’s going to happen, how a claim will be handled, if it’s going to go to trial, and any other problems that may arise. As such, you want to be as prepared as possible to navigate the claims-filing process, as well as any potential trial that may occur.

As such, you still want to speak with as many witnesses as possible after the accident who can help assist your statement. The more witnesses you have backing up your claim, the more likely you are to have the insurance company listen to them about what happened during your crash.
