Questions the Insurance Company Will Ask After a Car Accident

The overall purpose of an interview that follows a car accident is to document what happened from your point of view. Further, it is likely that your testimony will be used to assign liability for the accident in which you were involved. In these interviews with insurance representatives, it is important to be as honest, but do not make assumptions or provide information if you’re unsure.

Common Questions Insurance Companies ask After a Car Accident

  • When did the accident occur?
  • Where was the accident?
  • Who was involved?
  • Did you have passengers?
  • How did the accident take place?
  • Who do you think was at fault?
  • Which direction were you heading?
  • Did you see or hear anything that can help determine the cause?
  • Were you hurt? If so, what injuries did you sustain?
  • Was a police report filed?

If you’re involved in an accident or suffer an injury—you should contact your insurance company in a timely fashion. Here are a few tips that may help when reporting your car accident to your insurance company:

  • If you need to report an injury in your car accident claim, avoid self-diagnosis or definitive statements about the extent of your injuries.
  • Answer only the questions that are asked! Do not give up information that isn’t requested! If you are asked a question you do not know the answer to, tell the insurance adjuster that you do not have that information at this time.
  • Remain calm and professional. Your relationship with the insurance company is strictly business, so keep it that way. Stay polite, but firm, and the process will be smoother.
