Car Accident FAQ: What Information Do I Give the Other Insurance Company?

Car Accident FAQ: What Information Do I Give the Other Insurance Company?

After a crash, the insurance companies may request all parties involved to provide information regarding the crash. For instance, you may receive a request asking for your insurance policy information and your driver’s license.

However, you should be aware of numerous tactics that insurance companies try to use to limit compensation. Some of the information they request can impact your claim. It’s essential to recognize what you should provide and what you should keep to yourself.

What Information Should I Provide?

You want to provide the necessary information that you would in the event of an accident. For instance, you should include:

  • Your driver’s license
  • Your registration information
  • Your contact information
  • Your insurance policy and contact information

The documentation above is vital information and allows the other party’s insurance company to communicate effectively. The insurance companies work together to determine the outcome of the claim, but there may be some intricate details to examine. You may require legal representation moving forward.

What Information Should I Withhold

You want to provide the essential information first, but you should also take the time to speak with a lawyer about what not to provide. For instance, you may want to avoid providing a recorded statement when the other party’s insurance company requests one.

You may have a lawyer present when speaking with the other insurance company to avoid them taking advantage of your rights. Your lawyer can help you answer questions in a way that supports your claim rather than hurting it.

At Daspit Law, we’ll help you understand your rights and protect your interests. Know that the insurance company is looking out for their profits. They’re not always willing to pay out compensation when you need it.
