Which Insurance Company Do I Report My Accident To?
You may be wondering whether you report your accident with your auto insurance company or with the insurance company for the other driver. Be sure to report the accident to your insurance company. If the other driver was at fault and there is no dispute, you may also be able to file directly with them. If you are injured and seek medical attention, it is important to know if your insurance policy has Personal Injury Protection, “PIP” coverage. Also known as no-fault insurance, PIP covers medical expenses regardless of who was at fault and can often include coverage for lost wages. Depending on the state that you live in, PIP coverage may be available as an add-on to your policy, or a mandatory feature of your policy. If you have PIP coverage, claims for medical expenses should be filed with your auto insurance carrier and not your health insurance.
