Who Will pay to fix My Car?
When an accident occurs, the most common concern that comes to mind is how you’re going to fix your car and, more importantly, who is going to pay for it. In almost every case, your own insurance company should pay to repair your car. You may be able to get your car repaired with no deductible and with no increased premiums if your insurance company finds that another person was at fault for the accident. If you do not have insurance that covers the type of charge at issue and the accident was not your fault, then you might be able to compel the other person’s insurance company to pay for the repairs or for the cost of replacing your car if it was totaled. You do not have to have your car repaired after an accident if you do not want to do that. If you don’t want to get your car fixed, then your insurance company will send you a payment against your car’s reduced value. If this is what you choose to do, however, you should remember that in the event of another accident, you car’s value is going to be less than if you opted to have it fixed.
One common issue that our clients face is that the insurance company’s estimate doesn’t cover all of the damage that occurred in the accident. Subsequently, the client does not have enough money to get the car completely repaired. Transportation is essential and not having a reliable vehicle can be very problematic, especially for those who rely on their car to get to and from work every day or don’t have easy access to public transportation. Getting into a car accident is already a stressful experience, but dealing with an insurance estimate that is too low to cover the repairs, or not having enough money to cover the costs yourself, can be extremely overwhelming and burdensome. The car may be able to be fixed through a second appraisal or a supplement to the initial appraisal that had been done, however. Our attorneys have been doing this for years – we understand how frustrating it can be when fixing your car. This process can be confusing and difficult, and it helps immensely to have a lawyer to help you coordinate it. Our attorneys know what steps to take in order to get the compensation you need and have the experience and expertise to professionally handle the case in the most effective way possible.Call an Excellent Personal Injury Attorney Today at 617.492.3000 or 800.481.6199
