Tips to Deal with Insurance Companies after an Oklahoma Car Accident

By Car Accident Help on December 21, 2011

If you have been injured in an Oklahoma car accident, you probably know that dealing with insurance companies can be an added headache. Many valid claims are denied because of mistakes made during the claims process. Here are a few tips to help you avoid the pitfalls of dealing with an insurance company in the aftermath of an Oklahoma car accident.

Before calling the insurance company of the at-fault driver, you should collect all of the information you need. Write out clear and concise notes about where, when, and how the accident occurred. You should have contact information from anyone who may have witnessed the accident, as well as your own insurance information. Having notes with you will help you convey the information clearly and coherently.

When discussing the details of the crash with an insurance agent, it is important to remember that insurance companies are not your friends. They are large corporations that are highly profitable. They will look for opportunities to deny your claim or minimize its value. Do not allow them to record your conversation. For your part, do not relay inaccurate information, do not contradict yourself, and do not admit fault.

It will also be in your best interest to properly calculate all of the damages you have suffered. Victims often have car repair bills handy, but they forget about all of the other losses they may be compensated for. Did you have to go to the emergency room? Did you require hospitalization for your personal injury, rehabilitation, prescription medications, or time away from work?

If you have been injured in a car accident, you would be well advised to seek the counsel of an experienced Oklahoma City traffic accident lawyer who will guide you every step of the way and help you avoid the mistakes that can jeopardize or even kill your claim. Please contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at The Maples Law Firm who have a long and successful track record of fighting insurance companies on behalf of injured victims and their families.
