Who Fixes My Car After an Accident?
It is not uncommon for people to ask “Who fixes my car after an accident?”
Being without a vehicle after an accident can be devastating, and a rental car is another expense that you may have to cover until there is a settlement.
Before you take action, it is important to review your policy and speak with your lawyer. This will help you avoid paying for things that you don’t necessarily need to, and doing so can also resolve your transportation issue.
Insurance Repair Details
Insurance companies often “total” vehicles and only pay for what they are assessed to be worth despite how much you may still owe on the damaged vehicle.
Insurance policies may only cover services from certain rental companies or mechanics. It is best to find out all of these details before you take any action. In some cases, your insurance company will even arrange the car rental for you.
What you don’t want to do is get your car fixed or rent a car only to then learn that your insurance does not cover that rental car company, rental cars in general, or the mechanic who worked on your vehicle.
