WILL THE CORONAVIRUS IMPACT MY CAR INSURANCE?
The coronavirus has affected our lives in many different ways. Because of this, many people who’ve been in car accidents now find themselves wondering whether the virus will impact their car insurance. Fortunately, generally speaking, this is not the case. However, there is a chance that the coronavirus will end up affecting how you deal with your insurance company. Many car insurance companies across the country are making the transition to work remotely. This means that instead of walking in and talking with your insurance agent directly, you will most likely have to deal with your insurance company online, on the phone, or through their app.
Furthermore, you should expect certain delays in your dealings with these companies, including the length of time it may take to receive compensation or repair your damaged car, since many autobody shops will now close to the public. Additionally, certain circumstances may call for temporary payment extensions, holds on terminations because of nonpayment due to complications brought on by the coronavirus, and more. Though we cannot guarantee that the new coronavirus will directly affect your car insurance company, we believe that in these turbulent times, it most likely will. As we learn more, we will keep you informed, and as always, if you are someone who has been injured in an auto accident, please do not hesitate to speak with our experienced Texas personal injury attorney today to learn more about how he can help you win the compensation you deserve and need.
