Things can get a little confusing after a car crash incident. Concerns like getting medical help and negotiating with the other party (or parties) involved in the car accident may already be too much to handle. And, there is still that need to get the car fixed.
A car accident repair process is another huge problem to face for people involved in a car accident, so it is important to get help from the insurance company and an expert (collision repair) shop to make sure the car gets fixed. An article on (Finder.com/Progressive) offers useful advice on getting a car fixed after surviving an accident.
After getting to a safe place and exchanging insurance information with the other party (or parties) involved, if possible, get in touch with a representative from an insurance company. A rep can offer steps to follow to deal with the situation and offer advice on what or what not to say or do, which includes admission of guilt or liability. Giving an insurance company rep personal details like name, contact information, driver’s license number and details of the accident will start the process of filing a claim.
Choosing a Repair Shop
The insurance company may suggest a list of (collision repair) shops that are able to restore the car. There are cases where the insurance company will require the insurance policy holder to pick a repair shop from a list. For instance, policy holders who are still making payments on their car are required to get an affiliate repair shop. Furthermore, picking an auto body repair shop from a list may save time and hassle.
One disadvantage of picking a shop from a list, however, is receiving aftermarket parts for the car in the repair process because the insurer’s preferred mechanic is saving on cost. Policy holders can decide to say no to an insurance company’s preferred (collision center) s and instead find one for themselves. According to the article on Finder.com, there are tips to consider when choosing a repair shop outside of an insurance company’s network.
