Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – Should I report my car accident to my insurance company even if I am not at-fault?

Yes, it is recommended that you contact your insurance company and let them know about the automobile accident claim. The reason for this is you do not know if the other insurance company for the at-fault driver is going to cover them. Therefore, it is very important that your insurance company is put on notice so they may provide you coverage should the at-fault driver not have adequate insurance coverage or any insurance coverage as it relates to the claim.

You have a contract with your insurance company to provide notice as soon as you can and in some cases the contract might state that if you do not notify the insurance company of a motor vehicle accident or a car wreck within a certain time period, i.e. 30 days for 45 days, they have the right to deny your claim. It depends on the contract that you have with your insurance company.

Therefore, it’s important that you provide them notice of a car accident as soon as possible.

If you look at your insurance policy it should spell out the details that are applicable for you and your coverage.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
