I drive almost every day, so I try to be careful and avoid accidents. The last thing that I can afford is to have my car in the shop for a while getting repaired. This would mean that I would have to take the bus or ride my bike everywhere, which would be a real pain.
Unfortunately, this happened not that long ago. I was in a car accident that was not my fault at all. Another driver made an illegal left turn and hit me as I was driving home. Fortunately, I was not hurt, but my car was damaged.
I knew that I would have to file a car insurance claim right away. I wanted to get the process moving as quickly as possible so that I could get the money that I needed to fix my car. I called my insurance agent as soon as I was able to do so.
The good news was that they got things moving right away, and I was able to get my claim honored very quickly. It did not take too long to get my car fixed up so that I could get back behind the wheel again.
