If another driver was at fault for the accident, you may have your car repaired through your own insurance company, which will eventually be reimbursed by the at-fault driver’s insurance company, including any deductible your insurance company required you to pay. The insurance company will give you an estimate, and you can then take your car to the body shop of your choice for a second estimate. If the amount to repair your car determined by your chosen body shop is greater than the insurance company’s estimate, your body shop can contact your insurance company on your behalf. An experienced car accident attorney can protect your rights throughout the car repair process.
