Los Angeles auto accident victims have many choices when it comes to repairing their vehicles. There are many body shops in Los Angeles for people to choose from and many considerations that must be taken into account when choosing a Los Angeles body shop.
After a car accident in Los Angeles, oftentimes the applicable insurance coverage will dictate what happens to your vehicle.
Usually, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will pay for the damage to your vehicle (whether it be a total loss or repairable). However, sometimes, especially when there is a dispute over liability, a person’s own insurance (through collision coverage) will pay for his or her damage, and then later seek reimbursement from the at-fault driver or his/her insurance company, through what is called subrogation.
Therefore, it is important to make sure you have the proper insurance coverage, to cover the damage to your vehicle and also a rental car for any time you are without the use of your vehicle.
