Submitting an Online Car Accident Claim During the Coronavirus 

So, how did we start off on today’s topic of discussion? Well, a lot of our readers have been asking questions about how the COVID-19 crisis has effected insurance companies. From getting paid out on an injury claim to simply wondering if people still had to pay their insurance premiums, lot’s of us have valid concerns. Now, again, we cannot provide legal advice on our website, and we are not here to talk about if you can or cannot pay your insurance dues. However, we did want to discuss submitting an online car accident claim during the Coronavirus.

As almost all of us have shifted to searching for our needs online, we wandered if accident victims had questions about filing an online claim. Guess what, they did, and we wanted to help. The short answer is yes, you can file a claim online. In fact, many of the major insurance carriers such as StateFarm, Allstate, and PROGRESSIVE all offer web pages to file a claim. However, there may be a catch to this. See, we always recommend you seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer in Indianapolis prior to filing a claim. Here is why in the next section.

Why Would I Contact an Injury Lawyer Before Calling my Insurance Company After a Car Crash? 

Again, as we cannot provide you legal advice online, this article is simply voicing our own personal opinion. Now, the quick answer to “why would I contact an injury lawyer before calling my insurance company after a car crash” is the protect yourself. Do you have to call an attorney first? No, not at all. Do we think it’s in your best interests? Absolutely. See, whether you want to believe this or not, insurance companies care more about their profits then they do about you. Regardless of what you see on television commercials, or read on their marketing ads, insurance companies are out to make money. Period.

An Insurance company is like a gigantic financial institution. They make billions of dollars by collecting our payments and then investing that money. In turn, they lose money by paying out on large injury claims. So to protect their “investments” they hire big-time injury lawyers, adjusters, and underwriters who all work towards, for lack of a better word, “keeping” your money in their pockets. However, you have rights and options. You can hire your own Indianapolis accident injury lawyer. Best of all, we charge no money upfront. Here are some reasons why you may want to call an injury attorney before filing an auto accident claim.

They May Ask You Difficult Questions to Trick You 

Most people know that if a police officer or law enforcement agent starts asking you questions, you should keep your mouth shut. In fact, if you’ve ever been read your Miranda Rights, then you’re aware you are warned upfront you have the Fifth Amendment Right to not talk. That’s because the officer questioning you is trying to dig for information to potentially use against you. They are not your friends. The same goes for an insurance company. They may sound nice and carrying, but really they are trying to get information to help protect them. Let an injury attorney, who is skilled in dealing with insurance adjusters, answer those tough questions on your behalf.

Understanding the Law and the Injury Claim Process 

Take a minute to think about what you do as a profession. Are you a doctor, financial broker? Maybe you are a teacher or personal trainer, contraction worker, electrician. The point is this, you KNOW your job inside and out. So do insurance companies. Now, unless you yourself are an insurance adjuster, underwriter, or injury attorney you may NOT understand the injury claim process. That means that things that are quoted to you by an insurance company may not be done so with full transparency. Let an experienced injury lawyer work to handle these things for you.

Getting You Paid ASAP and for the Maximum Amount of Money 

Yes, we know you’ve been waiting for this reason. We firmly believe that retaining an injury attorney is financially beneficial for you. Getting you paid ASAP and for the maximum amount of money is what we fight for. In fact, we do not get paid until you get paid first. If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid. Period.
