How to talk, to auto insurance agent

You should know never lie to your insurance company,  that would be fraud.
But what you say and what you do does matter. Moreover, it could mean the difference between how much an automobile accident, is covered and what impact it will have on your premium.

Keep in mind when dealing with your auto insurance:

1 - Never admit fault, let it all get figured out by insurance companies.
Even if it is your fault, don't come out and say it, taking the blame could mean that your insurance is picking up
100% of the claim.

2 - Don't give your opinion.
Many times your opinion of a situation is not totally accurate and it could hurt you, use the words "in my opinion."

3 - Never leave the scene, stay until the police come.
Even if is your fault, the other driver could exaggerate the degree of accident or say you just drove away that could lead to more problems.

4 - Make sure the other driver gets the ticket.
If you're involve in an accident, where the other driver was clearly at fault.
It's proof that it wasn't your fault.

5 - Report every ailment and medication.
Most insurance policies will require at least a urine sample and often a blood test.

6 - Avoid using Whiplash to describe that pain in your neck. Muscle injuries don't show up on X-rays.

If the insurance company find out you've lied about something, they will enforce your policy to the letter.
Telling the truth is always the best policy
