Car Accident Settlement: Two Parts
Report your car accident immediately to your insurance company. The property damage part of the settlement is paid by your no fault insurance policy. In order to protect your rights and receive a fair value for your car you need to request a copy of the insurance company appraisal to verify that their appraisal is accurate and that the appraisal was based on comparably equipped and valued, local vehicles. Then, do not stop with that — research the Blue Book value and compare internet prices. Do not automatically accept the insurance company’s first offer. They have predetermined a range of value and will offer the lowest possible value on your car.
This part of your car accident settlement can involve many insurance companies. Do not talk to any insurance company (other than the initial report to your insurance company) or to any representative of anyone involved in the accident. They will attempt to coerce you into making a damaging statement about the accident or your injuries. Anything you say can be used against you.
***Beware about signing medical records release forms. The only records you are required to release are the car accident-related injury records.
