Answer What type of claim? Damage or injury?
Answer you don't have to do anything...but you should and would be wise to so...your insuring contract will have wording similar to this, you agree to promptly r…eport any and all losses if you're not at fault and wish to use the other company that's ok they will just close it once they know you are taken care of...there are many many reasons to report this, and that are all geared to protect you.....
The insurance company has a certain amount of time (30-60 days, depending on your state) to give you an "answer", which could be "Accepted, here's your check", "Declined…, deal with it or sue us", or "We need some more time to investigate." There is definitely not a concrete time that you will magically get a check in the mail. Some important factors: Are you filing this claim on your own insurance policy or on the person who you think is responsible for the accident? If you file it on your own insurance company it will be much quicker, in general. If you file it on another person's liability policy, the insurance company will need to complete a liability investigation. This will generally consist of interviewing all involved parties, witnesses and ordering the police report (if applicable). The quickest this could take is perhaps 3 days (if no police report is to be ordered). Are there injuries? If there are injuries, especially if there are multiple people with multiple (costly) injuries, there may be a limits issue and it will take much longer. Also, if this is the other insurance company, they will need to talk with their insured to verify the details of the accident. If he doesn't answer the phone, the burden of proof will be yours to prove the accident happened and he was at fault.
well it depends where u live as auto insurance differs everywhere. But here in Ontario, when a person hits you and drives off or has no insurance, it goes under your Uninsured… auto mobile coverage. and it has very limited coverage for Medical bills, and fixing ur vehicle up to 25,000 if it was a person with no insurance. if its a hit and run then u have to pay the damages to your car out of pocket. or make a claim under your collision coverage.
Yes, you can. However, ultimately it is the at fault party's insurance company that will pay for the claim. In such a case, you will file a claim under your collision coverage… and be subjected to the deductible. Once the claim is settled, your company will subrogate the loss with the other company(i.e. get reimbursed). Once that happens, you will be provided your deductible back. If you go through the at fault party's policy, you would file the claim under the property damage of the policy.
How long does a auto insurance have to file a law suit against you for an accident you did not have auto insurance?
Laws vary by state but I can tell you for the state of California you have up to 3 years from the date of the accident to attempt to collect money from the responsible party (…ex: filing suit against someone). Now just so you know, if it was confirmed you were not insured on the date of loss, most major companies will just send the file to a collections company to go after you for the money.
You have 10 days to report accidents over $1,000 in Texas if a police official doesnt' show up on the scene. The sooner the better.
I would say yes although I am not familiar with Florida law specifically. What comes to mind is a minor fender bender. The police are not always called to an accident if the p…arties agree to fore go calling and fault is not an issue.
Each state has different time periods of filing an insurance claim after an accident. Check with you state to make sure you do not miss the filing period.
How long does an at fault insurance company have to settle your auto accident claim if they are at fault?
