Q: What does your insurance company have to do once you tell them you were in a car accident?

A: An insurance policy is nothing more than a contract. That contract defines the rights and obligations between the insurance company and the insured. Once you advise your insurance company that you have been involved in an automobile accident in Florida it has the affirmative obligation to undertake to investigate what happened. It has the obligation to let you know that you have certain benefits under that policy in the event you are hurt. For example you have no fault or PIP benefits that will pay regardless of who is at fault in the accident. You also have the obligation to cooperate with your own insurance company. That’s part of your contract. The insurance company has the duty and obligation to determine whether or not there may even be a claim made against you and if so your insurance company will defend you and any claim against you.
