Making an Auto Insurance Claim? Here’s What to Expect

If you’ve been in a car accident, it can be hard to figure out what to take care of first. After your immediate health and safety needs are met, the next step is to call your insurance agency. Great Michigan Insurance is proud to serve the Marshall, MI area. Here, we’ll discuss what you can expect when you make an auto insurance claim. 

First, you’ll need to provide the details of the accident to your insurer. If you have a police report, your insurance provider will likely ask for a copy. They’ll also likely want to see photos of the damage, if possible. Your insurance agent may also ask you questions about the weather at the time of the accident and the time of day that the accident occurred. 

Next, your insurance agent will discuss whether you’d like to file an insurance claim. It’s important to note that just because you called your insurance company does not mean that you have to move forward with filing a claim. You can simply get more information from your insurance agent to help you decide whether to proceed. 

If you decide to file a claim, your insurance company will usually send an adjuster to take a look at the damage to your vehicle. They’ll also provide an estimate that will help determine how much your insurance company will contribute toward your car repairs.
