Not in most cases. Say for instance you were injured (soft tissue damage is a hard one) and you settled before they completely investigated or your insurance companies came to an understanding as to how you should be paid out; when you take money before the claim is final, then you are basically "null and voiding" it. In British Columbia Canada we have ICBC, and I was in a head-on collision with a friend (not her fault.) I had one year to fight my claim and had the option to either see a lawyer or deal with ICBC (who would cheat the heck out of you if they think they can get away with it.) If I had taken any money from ICBC then I couldn't see a lawyer and sue the person's insurance that hit us. Wait for the claim to finalize. Good luck Marcy

Can you claim for a car accident injury for swerving to miss a deer?

Yes you can. Even though your the one that swerved & caused the wreck your also the one that was trying to avoid the accident & hurting something. Which then caused your wreck. So if you hadn't swerved to miss the deer you would have hit the deer & been in a wreck anyway, plus you would have hurt the deer. So your wreck was inevitable, it was going to happen no matter what. Yes you can claim it, because you were actually trying to avoid an accident. Hope my answer helped. Good Luck!

Check yourself before you wreck yourself

If you wreck your car and the inspection is out will it still be covered by the insurance?

It is very doubtful that the insurance company will even notice the inspection sticker being out. It should have no impact on your claim. The only issue is if the wreck was caused by lack of maintenance and if the inspection would have caught this issue. This may prove you knew about the issue and did not correct it. A normal wreck shouldn't be impacted by the sticker issue.
