Will my Car Insurance be Impacted by the Coronavirus Outbreak?

The spread of the Coronavirus has impacted the world in many ways, right down to people’s everyday lives. This has resulted in people and companies working towards adjusting and in the meantime wondering what else may continue to change. One question people may ask is if the virus will affect certain insurances, such as car insurance. However, for the most part, car insurance will not be impacted. While this is true, it unfortunately does not stop car accidents from happening. This means people will still have to work with their insurance companies. Continue reading to learn more about how these situations may be handled during this time.

How Do I Contact My Insurance Company?

The Coronavirus outbreak has caused many businesses to close their doors and continue to work remotely. It is because of this that many can expect their car insurance company to do the same. While this may not affect your policy, it may prohibit you from being able to file a claim at the physical insurance company office. Instead, it can be done in the following ways:

  • Calling the insurance company to speak with a representative
  • Online
  • Mobile app
  • Email

Some delays in the process are to be anticipated during this time, as other businesses such as body shops can be closed as well. It is possible that some insurance companies may choose grant temporary payment extensions, place holds on policy terminations due to nonpayments, and more.

While the claim may be filed, it is possible that compensation can be delayed, as insurance companies are working to adjust to this situation as well. This may be for medical bills, damages done to the vehicle, and more. You can seek comfort in these situations by retaining our personal injury attorneys to fight for your right to recovery during this difficult time.
