After a serious car crash or other accident, your main concern will be your body’s physical health.
While you may not have experienced bodily harm, you probably have experienced damage to your vehicle or other property.
Luckily, compensation for property damage is a true possibility after an accident.
Types of property damage in an auto accident
Property damage is more than just car repairs.
In fact, property damages after a car accident can include:
- Lost value in your vehicle
- Lost or broken items inside the vehicle at the time of the accident
- Lost fuel
Filing for property damage
There are two primary ways to file for property damage after you’ve been in an accident: through your insurance company or the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
Whichever you choose, a claims adjuster will either come to take photos of your vehicle, or you will have to take them yourself.
Once the value of the property damage is determined, you will be issued the amount.
Your car will be considered “totaled” if it will require more than 80 percent of the car’s value to make the repairs.
If this is the case, you will be given the car’s market price value.
