You must first notify the insurance provider of the accident to file a bike insurance claim. It might be a theft, an accident, or damage brought on by a natural or man-made disaster. Additionally, you must submit all required paperwork to be reimbursed for your expenses.

You should know the different claim settlement processes.

Payment of claims without cash

After examining the supporting documents, including the original repair bill, receipt, policy document, RC, etc., the insurer will reimburse the incurred amount. The best part is that you can have your car fixed at the garage of your choice and receive payment for the cost of repairs directly into your bank account.
