Can You File Damage Claim to Your Auto Insurance Following A Vehicular Crash?
Yes, you can. However, whether your claim will be approved or not depends on the circumstances of your crash. For example, if your car crash was a single-vehicle crash that occurred due to your own negligence, then you can file a damage claim to your auto insurance if you have a personal injury protection (PIP) policy included in your auto insurance. If you live in California, this will not be mandatory insurance coverage, and thus you need to check your auto insurance policy. On the other hand, if your car crash was due to the fault of another party then we advise you to refrain from using your own auto insurance. You should instead pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party.
