Need Repairs After an Accident? Here’s What You Should Do.
Regardless of how safe you are behind the wheel, chances are you’ll get into a car accident at some point in your life. If you’re lucky enough to avoid winding up with a totaled car, the process of getting the repairs you need can often be difficult for a number of reasons.
Assuming you haven’t been injured and that your car was not totaled, here’s what you should do after a car accident.
Obtain a Copy of the Police Report
You’ll want to review exactly what the responding police officer documented after they assessed your situation. Make sure the person at fault is correctly identified and that all of the other details are correct.
Get an Estimate
To start, you’ll want to get an estimate from a professional mechanic at a reputable repair shop that details the extent of damage done to your vehicle and how much they it will cost to repair. Don’t just pick anyone, though. You’ll want to make sure that the shop you choose has a good reputation in its community as well as with its past customers. Also, you’ll need to be sure that the shop you choose works with your insurance provider.
