3 tips for a better insurance settlement offer

Insurance companies are there to make money, and although it's nice to think that they will support what you need in a crisis, some will do anything they can to limit what they pay out. As a victim of a car accident, it's important that you get enough compensation to cover your lost wages, medical bills and other expenses.

Carrying the minimum insurance on your car puts you at risk

Paying for car insurance is one of those unpleasant facts of life, like seasonal allergies and aging. If you want to legally operate a motor vehicle in the state of California, you have to carry insurance on your vehicle. The state of California calls vehicle insurance financial responsibility, and everyone who drives a vehicle must provide evidence of it when stopped by law enforcement or after any kind of motor vehicle accident. You may think you're beating the system when you purchase the minimum required insurance under the law, but that practice could leave you in trouble after a serious accident.

Avoid These Mistakes When Dealing With An Insurance Company

The insurance company personnel may be friendly and you want to be helpful, right? That is understandable. However, remember that the insurance company is not on your side.

But the technologically advanced ones (texting, emailing, updating social media and video chatting) are now causing the most accidents.
