Austin Car Accident Tips

 

Being in a car accident is no fun and certainly can disrupt your life, even if you are not injured. Dealing with an adverse insurance company on your property damage can be a very frustrating experience for anyone. Often, the adverse insurance company for the negligent driver takes the position that they are unable to determine liability and therefore should not pay a property damage claim at this time.

 

In fairness, a lot of times an insurance company needs to gather sufficient information to make sure that the claim that they do pay is one it should pay. Unfortunately, for the innocent victim this can lead to much frustration and delay. One consideration for handling your property damage claim when the adverse insurance company is not ready to accept responsibility, is to turn the matter over to your own insurance company (provided you have collision coverage) and let them deal with the other carrier. In such case, it is important that you ask your insurance company to “sue for or collect” your deductible.

 

It also may be a good idea if your car can be repaired to take it to a repair facility that you trust and let them deal directly with the insurance companies. Getting in the middle of a car repair is not something that you should do if you can help it.

 

Austin car accident victims need to realize that the adverse insurance company is not in the business of being fair or doing what’s right. Car insurance companies in Texas have been largely unregulated as far as claims handling practices go and unfortunately, the Texas consumer suffers.

 

If you have questions about a serious injury from an awesome car accident you should consider contacting a reputable Austin personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the accident.
