According to the Department of Transportation, each day in the U.S. about 17,250 car accidents occur, equating to an abundance of insurance claims. Claims departments are bombarded with calls and emails on a daily basis that take valuable time to solve. Chatbot technology can save insurers time, money, and stress by bearing the brunt of the customer service load.
