Car Insurance Claims Dos and Don’ts
If you are a Dowagiac driver who has recently been involved in an accident, it is crucial that you know what you should and shouldn’t do to ensure that your repair costs are covered as efficiently and conveniently as possible. At Jim D's Body Shop we provide a detailed pamphlet for all Dowagiac drivers outlining a list of dos and don’ts when making an auto insurance claim following an accident. Here are some of the top points we think you should consider:
- Make sure that you pick a garage that is properly accredited for the repair and maintenance of your vehicle. Not only do accredited garages offer better quality services, but they also make it far easier for our insurance company to process the cost involved in an efficient manner.
- Take pictures if possible of your car and if it was involved in a multi-car collision, take pictures of the other vehicles too. Photos should also include the accident scene as well as any visible injures that occurred as a result of the collision.
- Be as honest and forthcoming as possible when discussing the details of the accident with your insurance agent. This means explain exactly what happened to the best of your knowledge without changing any of the facts.
- Pick the first garage you see. Make sure to shop around for the right garage for any repair work to your vehicle. Don’t automatically accept the insurer’s appraisal of your losses as they often work with one particular contractor and the appraisal may be lower than the value you place on your vehicle.
- Do not give any written statement to the insurance agent until you are sure that you understand all the details of your insurance coverage.
