Tonight, I wrecked my car. I was the only person involved. Do I have to make the insurance claim tonight, or can I wait until tomorrow morning? I'm kind of frazzled and not thinking straight right now....my husband's at work till 6 am....

Thanks.

It is best to call as soon as possible.  That being said nothing is going to change between right now and tomorrow mourning so it is perfectly fine to wait and call.

Most insurance companies have a 24hr hotline. All they will do is take a brief statement noting that you reported it and get back with you in the morning It's best to just do that now so you can say you followed their rules. Good luck, hope you're not hurt.

My husband got into an accident tonight as well. I have Nationwide and they have an 800# so I called it in tonight. Its best to do it asap!! Good luck. Are you ok? My DH has whiplash. His best friend and his  3 kids were in the car too. Thankfully they are ok except some bumps and bruises.

I think I'm okay. My back hurts, but I'm not sure if it's from work or the accident (I was on my way home from work when it happened). If it still hurts in the morning, I'll go to the doctor. Thankfully, I was the only one in the car, and no other cars were involved. I slid on some ice and hit a guard rail. I wasn't going very fast, so I didn't hit very hard luckily--but my car's pretty beat up.
