According to an article at mikeschaferlaw.com, “The Next Step After an Auto Collision”
“There are many frustrating aspects of being in an automobile accident and one of the most difficult to navigate is getting your car repaired or settling your property damage claim if your car is considered a total loss (totaled). You must wait for the insurance company to come and appraise your car and asses the damage done to it. You may not be able to drive your car or be embarrassed by driving a damaged car. These are only some of the issues that can aggravate you.
You have a couple of options when it comes to getting your car repaired if you had collision insurance on your car. Most commonly the quickest way to get your car repaired or to get reimbursed for the fair market value of the car if it has been totaled is to go through your own insurance company. This will begin the process immediately. All you need to do is call your insurance company and get a claim set up as soon as you are able. Some companies may tell you to take your car to the body shop of your choice and send them the repair estimate. This is usually an easy task.
This is easy because the body shop will take care of everything after you drop it off. They deal with the insurance company about any changes in the original estimate. Other insurance companies will send out an appraiser to take a look at your car and give you an estimate. You then take that repair estimate to your body shop and they work off of that estimate. If the body shop finds additional damage while repairing the car they will contact the insurance company directly to get approval for the additional repairs. This adds steps that can be frustrating.” To read the entire article click here.
