If you have been in an auto accident, you can typically expect to hear from the other party’s insurance company asking you to provide personal information. Whether you were at fault or not, insurance companies want to compile as much personal information on the involved parties as possible. They claim this information will help speed up and streamline the claims process.
In a previous article, we discussed the tricks and pitfalls to avoid when dealing directly with an insurance company following an auto accident. Insurance companies will gather as much information as possible in the hopes that they will uncover something that can help them avoid paying a claim. After all, insurance companies are not there to pay claims. They make money by denying claims and avoiding costly settlements.
Information to Provide to the Other Party’s Insurance Company
We recommend parties involved in an auto accident should only provide the following information to the other party’s insurance company before consulting with an experienced auto accident attorney:
- Date of Birth
- Driver’s license #
The above information is all an insurance company will need to begin the property damage portion of a claim. Before providing any other information, you should call an attorney at The Chiozza Law Firm, for a confidential case evaluation. Most importantly, it is highly advisable you consult with an attorney before providing a recorded statement.
