Property Damage After an Automobile Crash in Florida
At the Hudson Law Office, we understand that getting your car fixed after an automobile accident is frustrating and time consuming. That's why we handle all aspects of property damage for our clients. Remember, The Insurance Company Wants To Pay As Little As Possible For Your Damage.
If your car is damaged in an automobile accident, a claim is filed against your insurance company under the collision coverage, or a claim is filed against the owner or driver of the car that caused the accident.
If you have collision coverage and the owner or driver of the car that struck you was at fault, then you have a choice against who to file the claim.
How do I get paid for my damage?
Usually, the insurance company instructs you to take your car to an appraiser. More often than not, the appraiser works for the insurance company and tends to minimize the cost of repair.
What can I do?
First, take pictures of the damage. Second, get your own estimate. The insurance company has all the time in the world. Their obligation is to pay a reasonable cost for the repair or the pre-accident value. They hold the money and the longer it takes, the longer they keep the money.
