Central Florida is a rapidly growing region, and our roads continue to get more and more congested. Unfortunately, this can lead to traffic accidents happening more frequently, and it has.

If you’ve been involved in a traffic accident in Central Florida, do you need to let your insurance company know? The answer is yes.

You need to notify your own insurance company, even if the accident wasn’t your fault. When you take out a policy with an insurance company, you have a responsibility to report a claim promptly and to work through the details of the accident with them. It helps the insurance company to protect your rights.

Your insurance company has the right to investigate the claim, but if you fail to help them, they can actually deny coverage, such as uninsured motorist coverage.

While you are required to report the claim to your insurance company, remember you should not speak to the adjusters of the other party’s insurance company without seeking assistance from an attorney and your insurance company.
