5 Mistakes to Avoid After a Car AccidentPosted: February 2, 2012
Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:
Being in an auto accident can be a scary, frustrating and unnerving experience that no one ever wants to happen. Nonetheless, when a car accident does occur, you must take action immediately and file a claim with your insurance company. If one error is made in the process after an accident, your claim could be denied. In this post, Long Island Insurance Executive, Gregg S. Marcus, lists the five most common mistakes drivers make after an accident.
1. Waiting to Make the Claim
The longer you wait after an accident to make a claim with the auto insurance company, the less likely it is to be approved. As soon as you and all parties involved in the accident are in a safe place, contact your insurance company to let them know.
2. Not Getting or Giving Information
