When Should You Contact Your Auto Insurance Company?
It is best to contact your auto insurance company as soon as possible after your car accident. The phone number to call is on your auto insurance card. Ask for the adjustor’s name, phone and fax number. Your adjustor will ask you a few questions about your accident like when did the car accident happen; how did the car accident happen; were there other people in the car at the time of the car accident; did the police or Utah Highway Patrol come to the scene of your car accident; were any citations given by the police or Highway Patrol; did you need any emergency care after your accident? If you think the other driver is at fault always wait for a police officer to cite the other driver. Sometimes, it may take a while before a police office to arrive depending on their priorities in the community.
