AUTO REPAIR WITH INSUANCE COMPANY PROBLEM

Hi There

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?

Any info on this problem would be appreciated.

Thanks
David

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.
