What if I have an auto claim?
Accidents happen. Here are helpful tips to help protect yourself, your car, and your property from further damage.
- Someone gets hurt, tons of damage or you were involved in a hit and run – call 911 immediately.
- Take lots of photos of the scene, your car, the other car(s) involved in the accident, license plates, licenses and insurance cards. Collect names, addresses, and phone numbers of all witnesses.
- Write down the events that lead up to and after the accident.
- Do not leave the scene until all information is gathered.
- Contact us directly to report your claim. If we are not in office, you can also contact your insurance carrier found on your insurance card.
Some questions your insurance carrier might ask following an accident:
- What kind of vehicle(s) were involved (including the license plate number, year, make, and model)
- Description of the damage of each vehicle
- The names and contact information of people involved in the accident
- The extend of any injuries to people involved in the accident
- The names and contact information of any passengers and/or witnesses
- The name of the law enforcement agency that responded and the police report number if police were contacted.
What if I have a property claim?
- Take the necessary precautions to protect your property from further damage.
- In the event of personal injury, obtain the names and addresses of individuals involved and witnesses.
- Contact your agent as soon as possible to report your claim. If your claim involves theft your policy requires you to file a police report.
- If you’re unable to reach your agent after normal business hours, most insurance companies provide an after-hours claim reporting phone service for claim emergencies or contact us the next business day.
- Take photos (or videos) of damage.
If you feel the need to submit a claim after our business hours, you can submit a claim directly to your carrier below.
