I WAS NOT AT FAULT IN A CAR WRECK, BUT THE AT-FAULT DRIVER WAS COVERED BY PROGRESSIVE. SHOULD I CALL PROGRESSIVE TO NOTIFY THEM OF THE ACCIDENT?
You should be very careful about speaking with any insurer, and you have to assume that every insurer will record your conversations. Anything that you say to the insurer can be used against you in your claim against them or their insured later. You have an obligation to notify your insurance carrier of the accident, but you do not have a duty to notify the at-fault driver's insurance company of the accident. Despite not having a duty to notify the at-fault driver's insurance company of the accident, you absolutely want the insurer to receive timely notice of the covered accident. This is why having an attorney act on your behalf can be essential.
