With this option, you could begin fixing your vehicle on the same day of the accident.
However, you will have to pay your deductible before any repairs are made.
Once the at-fault driver’s insurance company accepts liability, your insurance company will reimburse your deductible once they are paid by the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
Can you get a rental vehicle after car accident property damage?
If your vehicle cannot be driven, then you need a rental car right away.
It is important that your vehicle is towed to an auto body repair shop and not a tow lot as soon as possible. You need an insurance company field adjuster appraising the car accident property damage, creating an initial estimate, and approving the necessary repairs.
You must promptly return the rental vehicle once your vehicle is repaired, or you may be charged for days that you kept the rental vehicle after your vehicle was repaired.
Do you have to use the at-fault driver’s insurance company’s auto body repair shop?
You do not have to get your car accident property damage repaired at one of the insurance company’s affiliated auto body shops. You can get your car accident property damage fixed at an auto body shop of your choosing.
Once you have chosen an auto body shop, all you have to do is bring the initial repair estimate and the car accident property damage check to your auto body shop so they can begin repairs.
