How to file an auto insurance claim
An auto insurance claim is a request made to an insurance company for compensation. Insurance claims cover damages sustained after a car accident or for representation or intervention on the insured’s behalf when they are liable for damages. Car repairs can be expensive, so if you are involved in an accident, you will want to know how to file an insurance claim.

Once you report your claim to your car insurance company, they will assign a claims professional, such as an adjuster, to work with you. The adjuster will represent you in any discussions with third parties, other insurance companies, and any other people involved. They will investigate the circumstances and work for you to get the claim settled and your vehicle repaired.
