Do I Have to Get My Car Repaired After a Car Accident?

You are free to get your car repaired or not or take the money from the insurance company or not after any car wreck. However, please be aware that insurance adjusters are taught to only value the visible damage to your vehicle. This means they do not get underneath the vehicle; they do not look behind crushed panels for any further damage. 

The first initial estimate is almost always low. Therefore, if you do not have your car repaired, they will pay you only for the visible damage. This means that sometime in the future if your car has other mechanical problems related to this accident, it will not be repaired; and, we will be unable to help you get any additional money. I always encourage you to get your vehicle fixed after a car accident.
