What to do if your Car Insurance Crash Repairs aren’t Good Enough
Being involved in an accident and having to organise repairs to your car as a result can be stressful. No matter who you chose to carry out accident repairs to your vehicle, you naturally expect those repairs to be completed to a high standard. But what happens if your car has gone in for crash repairs and they’ve not been carried out to the standard you’d expect?
Your Legal Position
As crash repair specialists in Chesterfield and Rotherham, we know that it’s not uncommon for customers to be unhappy with the crash repair work that has been undertaken by other crash repairers. It’s also not uncommon for us to correct that work and bring it up to the required standard. From a legal position, you have the right to ask for your vehicle to be put back in the same condition that it was in before the accident took place. If you’re in the unfortunate position that you’re not happy with your crash repairs, there are steps to you can take.
Go Back to Your Insurance Company
In the event that you are not satisfied with the standard to which your car has been repaired by your insurer’s choice of crash repairer, you should give the insurer and the accident repair firm themselves a reasonable chance to fix it to the standard of quality that you expect. If either refuse, it is possible to get the repairs done with your preferred choice of crash repairer, and then take the other driver to the small claims court. Mostly though, when insurers realise you are serious and have every intention of doing so, they will pay up.
It’s uncommon, but not unheard of, for further damage to have been done to vehicle during the repair process. Again, remember the law. You are well within your rights to demand your vehicle is returned to the same condition that it was in before the accident took place.
