Auto Claim

The most important thing to do is to make sure everyone is okay. Life and health are more important than vehicle damage. Inspect your car and make note of damages to all the vehicles involved.

Exchange information with other drivers. Write down names, addresses, and license numbers of everyone involved. For a great reference use our GloveBox Accident Reporting Form to gather all of the information you will need to gather when involved in an accident.

  • Write down a description of all the vehicles.
  • If the damage is over $900 you must call the police. (As a rule of thumb if you are not sure of the amount, call the police).
  • If there are any witnesses, write their names and addresses down.
  • Make notes about special circumstances such as the visibility, the road condition, or the weather.


Please help us to help you. The more information you can provide us with, the better we can handle your claim quickly and efficiently. If you are in a car accident, first seek medical attention for yourself and anyone who has been injured. Then begin to gather information to help with the investigation of your claim. You are the best person to tell us what happened. So be prepared to provide as many details as possible about the accident, where it happened and how it occurred. This information can be critical in settling a claim.
