The time immediately following an accident is unsettling and confusing. You may be in pain, or the pain may not come until later. You may not be sure if you will have any long term issues from the accident. Your mind may be racing as to who caused the accident, especially if there was an automobile involved. Your adrenaline is pumping. Does the person have insurance? Will your insurance cover it if they do not? These and so many other questions may not come to mind immediately but they will as time goes on.
In addition, you may have injuries that are not apparently obvious. It’s very common to leave an accident “walking away” and believing you are unscathed when in fact there are some internal injuries. These may be very slight or very severe. You may not realize your injuries until you have left the scene and settled in at home. When the emotions of the situation leave your body, you may start to feel pain. At this point, you may not be sure you need to report anything. However, time really is of the essence. If you fail to report early, you can lose any potential medical benefits you may have.
The Job of Insurance
When insurance companies are involved, their job is to mitigate the damage and pay as little as possible to any claimants. It is not their job to make you whole again. In fact, if you have recently purchased a vehicle where you took out a loan, you were likely asked about buying gap insurance. Gap insurance pays the difference in the event of an automobile accident and regular insurance coverage isn’t enough. However, that explanation simplifies gap insurance. In the case of an accident, there is still the question of any injuries, future earnings, and more.
