How to Get Your Car Fixed

If you were injured in an accident and want us to represent you, we'll take care of getting your car repaired for you, as well as your injury claim.

Question: Can I get a rental car while my car is being repaired?

Answer: Yes. Some companies specialize in providing cars to people whose cars are in the shop. Look for them in the Yellow Pages or feel free to ask us.

Question:
Where do I have to take my car to get it repaired?

Answer:
You decide which body shop you want to repair your car. Naturally, the insurance company may prefer that you go to the shop that gives you the lowest bid. But you have the opportunity to choose any repair shop you wish.

Question: How many estimates do I have to get?

Answer: You do not have to get more than one estimate. You might want to get more than one estimate if you are not sure where you want to have your car repaired. But the law - does not require that you get more than one. If you aren't sure where to take your car, we'll be happy to recommend repair shops that have good reputations.

Question: How much money will I get for my car?

Answer: You will get the amount of money needed to repair your car to the condition it was in immediately before the accident. If the amount of money needed for repairs is greater than the value of your car, the insurance company may declare your car a total loss. Then, rather than fixing your car, the insurance company may pay you what your car was worth based on industry price guidelines, like those found in the NADA Book.
