Your insurance company may be able to provide you and your family with a lot of help after you are in a car accident. Every case is different, but it’s possible that your insurance can offer you financial assistance for things such as property damage and medical bills sustained in a wreck. However, insurance companies are primarily concerned with making money. They are often required to make a payment to injury victims, but they always seek to limit their expenses. It’s understandable to be curious about the questions the insurance company will ask you after a car accident. The financial well-being of your family may depend on the actions of your insurance provider. It’s important to contact an experienced car accident lawyer if you or a loved one have been in an accident caused by someone else. Your car accident lawyer can make sure that your rights are protected through every part of the recovery process.

There Are Many Possible Questions the Insurance Company Can Ask
Insurance providers seek to know as much as possible after one of their insureds is in a car accident. This is because they need to determine which parties may hold responsibility for the accident. Once they determine this, they are then able to assess what they believe to be their financial liability for paying out damages to you and others. Insurance providers are required to act in good faith when they investigate accidents. This requires them to make a complete and honest review of cases where their insureds are involved, and they certainly don’t want to get in trouble later on for failing to properly investigate after a claim is made.
The insurance companies have professionals who are highly trained in investigating traffic accidents. They understand that every wreck is unique, and therefore the line of questioning you may receive will also be unique. However, some likely questions that they’ll ask you after your car accident include:
- Exactly where and when did your accident occur?
- Who was driving, and how many other parties were involved?
- Were there other passengers in your vehicle?
- Who do you think holds fault for the accident (it may be more than one party)?
- What exactly happened in the lead up to your collision?
- What would you say are the primary factors that resulted in the accident?
- Were you injured? If so, what are the specifics of your injuries?
- Were other people injured?
- Were the police called, and what agency filed a police report?
