Tips For Talking To Your Insurance Company After A Car Accident.

calling-about-accident

After a car accident the biggest fear is that your insurance company will not come to the ‘Party’.
Hopefully that is not the case.

Amy Bach executive director consumer advocacy group United policyholders says some auto claims can get complicated by the fine print.

Ways to avoid this:

a. Do not lie.
b. Stick to the facts: It is natural to want to explain the accident beat by beat. How much should you really say.
c. Answer your questions honestly but be careful about volunteering unsolicited details. If you try to save money by being less than honest, the truth may come out.
d. Your insurer should not deny your claim because of misrepresentations, but it may raise your rates. Trying to give precise details can lead to false recounts. Instead of specifics, provide estimates is a good way to go.

Avoid assuming blame: Even if you think you were clearly to blame, there may be mitigating factors. Remember your interpretation is just that : an interpretation. Most accidents are caused by both parties. Taking the blame may feel righteous, it might not be correct. It could lead to an unwarranted rate hike or lower settlement.
 Let the investigation play out.

Get your fair compensation:

Getting a fair settlement can be a delicate situation.
For injury make sure you visit a reputable doctor. Remember any claims not documented by your doctor will not be considered.
You could be examined by a doctor who has a relationship with your insurer. So even if you have been examined by your own doctor the result my face resistance and the Insurer may want to use the opinion of their own doctor.

Property damage is usually easier:

Most states give you the right to have your car repaired at the facility of your choice. If your insurer becomes difficult about paying for the repairs consider contacting your State Department of Insurance
Make sure you make the effort to work with your insurer try not to be too adversarial. But on the other hand fight for the protection you have paid for.

Did You Know – 12/08/2014

soda-bubbles
1. A new study looked at whether America’s thirst for soda speeds up how the body’s cells age.
Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco used a sample of 5300 healthy adults. Dr. Elissa Epel worked on the study for 5 years.
“We think we can get away with drinking lots of soda as long as we are not gaining weight, but this suggests that there is an invisible pathway that leads to accelerated aging, regardless of weight,” said Dr. Epel.

Epel’s team discovered that in people who drank more sugar-sweetened beverages, the ends of their chromosomes, known as telomeres, were shorter.
The shorter the telomere, the less a cell can regenerate thus aging the body, and raising the risk of disease and early death.
“This finding is alarming because it suggest that soda may be aging us, in ways we are not even aware of,” said Dr. Epel.
Researchers found no link in cell aging, however, when drinking diet sodas and fruit juices.

He IS 16 Today

IMG_0504

My beautiful Grandson Jayden is 16 today
He is thoughtful, gracious, funny, and more I could say

That precious little boy has become a rising star
He can’t wait to get his license and drive the car

Now that is an experience all of its own
Teaching him to drive, my nerves are blown

For some reason we stay too close to the road side
Letter boxes whizz past my window, it’s a kinda jerky ride

Anyhow he is not too bad
When he goes and gets lessons I will be glad

He has become a great surfer, attacks any waves
He has become fearless, a pleasure to watch as I do many days

My heart fills with pride as I watch him grow
Into the person he has become, his future bright I know

Lord where did that time, those years go, they sped away
It’s hard to believe he is 16 years old today
