Yes, you should notify your insurance of your car accident. The sooner you give them the information, the better so that when the other party calls to file a claim, your insurer will already have enough information in order to ask the other driver questions.
This helps ensure that there isn’t a delay in establishing that the other party was responsible for the collision. By cooperating with your own insurance company, you make it easier for your insurer argue against your liability.
Would I talk to an experienced accident lawyer like you before I contact my insurance company?
If you had not contacted your insurance company already, it is always best that you call us first – especially in a case where you have multiple parties in the accident and multiple insurance companies.
