How Do I Get A Claim Number After A Car Accident?

Car accidents can be scary and confusing.  At Offutt Collision Repair auto body shop BellevueNebraska, we always encourage our customers to first worry about their health, then we can worry about their car.

After an accident, if your vehicle is drivable, you don’t have to file a claim from the scene of the accident.  Take the time to settle your nerves and call once you are safe and out of harm’s way.  Your insurance card will list a claims phone number to call, which is generally an 800 number.  Or, you can call your local agent for the first steps.

If you are at the accident scene and have a non-drivable vehicle, you may consider calling your insurance company from there.  This will allow the insurance company the option to tow your vehicle to one of their preferred auto body shops Bellevue, NE.  They will also be able to set up a claim number for you at the same time.
