When you get into an accident that was not your fault, there is a lot of different emotions that you are going to feel. You may feel mad or frustrated at first, because you did not want to have to go through the hassle. You may also just be mad that your car has had to take on damage. Well, you are going to have to call the police and then you will want to call your insurance company to start your claim.
When the accident was not your fault, your insurance company is most likely going to shut your claim, and the other driver's insurance is going to have to take care of the damages. One thing to be aware of is that it is a good idea to use the auto collision repair shop that the insurance company usually works with. Here are a few reasons to use the auto body shop that the insurance company uses.
If you are like most people you absolutely hate paperwork. If you go through the insurance companies auto body shop, you will not have to fill out a single piece of paperwork. That is right, it is going to be up to the auto body shop completely. This is a good feeling because you can focus on the things that are important to you.
No Expenses Spared
The auto body shop knows that the insurance company is going to pay for all the damages, so they are usually very liberal with the fix. If an individual is paying there is a much better chance that they are not able to collect their money, but if the insurance company is going to flip the bill, they will make sure that they fix your car correctly.
Take Care of You
The insurance company and the auto body shop both want to take care of you. Insurance companies are always wanting to make a good impression because they want to insure as many people as possible. The auto body shop wants to make a good impression because they know that if you have a good experience with them, then you are going to be more likely to take your car to them again. You will also be much more likely to refer a friend to them. For this reason both the insurance company and the auto body shop are going to want to take special care of you.
