Do I Have To Notify My Insurance Company If I Am Not At Fault?

Listen as Kissimmee car accident lawyer, Michelle Incandela explains why you must notify your own insurance company following an accident that you were involved in, even though it was not your fault.

You should not worry about a potential auto insurance rate increase, as the accident was not your fault. Additionally, by taking out an insurance policy you have a duty to report the claim.

As part of the contract with the insurance company, you have to report a claim promptly and cooperate with them. They also have the right to investigate the claim. If you fail to do these things, the insurance company can actually deny coverage, such as uninsured motorist coverage. While you are required to report the claim, remember you should not speak to the adjusters of the other party’s insurance company without seeking assistance from an attorney.

I have engaged Draper Law Offices for three (3) different accidents.  My experience with this firm has been excellent each time, with positive results in my favor.  Charles Draper kept me informed throughout the process of each claim.  He was always available when ever I needed him to answer any questions.
The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful to me.  They never made me feel that I was bothering them (and I called quite a lot, believe me).  After a while they seemed like family.
I certainly would engage Draper Law Office (Charles Draper) if another problem would occur.
My recommendation to other people as to Draper Law Office would be “FIRST” on my list.
They are true and loyal to their clients.
I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
