Woman Filing A Claim After An AccidentAn accident has left you facing more than just the inability to get back and forth to work. Perhaps you weren't paying attention or your teen made a mistake while behind the wheel. When situations like these occur and you are legally responsible for the damages you are facing, it can be frightening not knowing what is going to happen next. It can get worse, if you find out the other person is suing you for losses. You might be wondering why this is happening, and what can be done about it.

What happens when you are being sued depends on many factors. First, if you have auto insurance, you should contact your insurance agent right away. He or she will help you to find out what your car insurance policy can provide to you. There are numerous potential outcomes. Consider the following:
  • If you have only liability insurance, the insurance policy will pay for the damage to another person's vehicle or property up to the amount of coverage listed on that policy.
  • If the amount of your liability insurance is exhausted by the claim and the claim from the other person is higher, he or she may sue you to obtain any assets to pay for the losses above and beyond what your policy offered.
  • If the amount of the claim is still within your auto insurance liability coverage but has not been approved by your insurer (perhaps because the insurance company denied the claim), then your agency is likely to work with you to help defend against the claim.
In many situations, damages from a car accident can be very expensive. These costs are even higher when people are hurt significantly or a vehicle is totaled. If you have not taken the time to update your auto insurance coverage, please do so now. Ensure you have ample coverage to protect you beyond what your current policy does. Having a higher liability limit really can help to cover more than just a simple claim; it can even help you avoid paying out of pocket for serious lawsuits. Don't assume that having just any type of auto insurance policy is enough. Talk to your car insurance agent to find out if you should have more coverage than you do.
