When Should You File an Insurance Claim After an Injury?

If you’ve been in an accident recently, whether in a car or otherwise, you may have sustained a costly injury. When should you file an insurance claim after an injury? Ideally, as soon as possible. You deserve compensation for your ordeal; get started on the claims process today. When you partner with Rossman Law Group, we’ll guide you through the process and encourage you to advocate for yourself.

Right After the Accident

Whether you’ve been injured in a motorcycle crash or a hunting accident, start the process as soon as you can. File a police report and get in contact with your insurance company. The sooner you start this process, the more details you’ll remember.

First Party vs. Third Party

When you file a claim directly with your own insurance company, it’s called a first-party claim. Even if you weren’t at fault in the accident, it’s wise to let them know. If you were at fault, however, you’ll need to report it to your insurance company, especially if other people involved were injured.

If another person involved in the accident caused your injury, you’ll file a third-party claim with their insurance company. Most providers offer third-party coverage for people injured as a result of the policyholder’s actions.
