I had a minor accident and have taken my car in for two estimates but the insurane company wants me to go to yet another shop for the repairs and after I read about inusrance companies having crappy repairs done to save money at this website http://www.claimsreporter.com/ I'm kind of worried about it.
Should I be worried? Should I try to make the insurance company use a repair shop that I chose? Can the insurance company force me to use a repair shop they have chosen?
In NY state, YOU choose where to get it repaired. However, the Insurance Co. Will not necessarily pay the charges of a shop that they can have it done cheaper at. Meaning you pick up any costs beyond what they authorize.
