As COVID-19 begins to affect more and more of us either directly or indirectly, people are wondering whether the virus will have an impact on their insurance, such as life or car insurance. Fortunately, in most cases, the coronavirus will not affect your insurance. However, it may affect how you deal with your insurance company. Though we are advised to stay inside, if you are still driving during this time, you run the risk of being involved in a car accident. Read on and reach out to our experienced Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more.
How can I contact my car insurance company during the COVID-19 outbreak?
Many businesses, including insurance companies, are now working remotely and are not going into their offices, which means that if you want to speak with your insurance company, you will most likely have to do so either over the phone, on their website/mobile app, or through email. Unfortunately, certain aspects surrounding the claims process may also be delayed, since local body shops and other businesses associated with car accident claims are now, for the most part, closed to the public.
How do I file my car insurance claim during the new coronavirus outbreak?
When filing a claim during this time, there is a very good chance you will have to meet with an adjuster virtually, instead of in person. In some cases, it may be that compensation for damage to your car, medical bills, and more may be delayed, since several insurance companies are struggling to adjust and appropriately deal with the virus. That being said, you can have peace of mind knowing that our experienced Texas firm will steadfastly represent your interests every step of the way to help ensure you receive the compensation you need to get back on your feet again.
