Soon thereafter, you may start receiving calls from the other motorist’s insurance adjuster, especially if it appears that their insured is responsible for your crash.

The sudden influx of calls that you begin receiving after a crash can be overwhelming. At some point, it can become challenging to know which insurer different callers represent. It’s even more difficult to keep track of when you and the other motorist are insured with the same company. If you add multiple people being on board handling a single claim into the mix, things verge on being chaotic.
