When you are involved in an accident the damage is not limited to your body. Your car or other property may also be damaged. Not only are you entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, but you are also allowed to be repaid for the necessary repairs to your car.
Typically, you will be required to get an estimate from a reputable mechanic, and then submit the invoice to the insurance company for the negligent driver as part of your case. This process can be frustrating, because you will be without your own vehicle while it is in the shop, and it can be hard to find a mechanic that is trustworthy and performs quality work.
Here is what to look for when getting your car fixed after an accident:
- Ask friends and family for referrals.
- Perform online searches and research of any mechanic you are considering.
- Make an in person visit to the auto shop.
- Ask questions, and ask for written estimates that confirm the answers you receive verbally.
You are entitled to a full report of what is needed to fix your car, and what it is likely to cost. You do not have to pay for repairs that were not made, or for parts that were not used during the repair. You are also entitled to know whether the parts used to fix your car were new, or refurbished. We understand that being in an auto accident is disruptive to your life, which is why we take an aggressive approach to getting you the recovery you deserve. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
