There’s a lot of things to about following a car accident, but dealing with your insurance company shouldn’t be one of them. To help ease the stress, here are answers to some common questions about filing a collision-repair claim after an accident .
Q: Can I choose the auto repair shop myself?
A: Yes! Although your insurance company may have a preferred network of auto body shops, the decision is ultimately up to you.
Q: Will there be any out-of-pocket costs?
A: In some cases your insurance company may offer you less than the total cost of repairs. A quality auto body shop will negotiate with your insurance company on your behalf to minimize or eliminate any additional costs for repairs.
Q: Do I need to get multiple estimates?
A: There are state-mandated requirements that drivers need to obtain multiple collision repair quotes. Simply submit the repair estimate from the auto body shop of your choice and the shop and insurance company will take care of the rest.
