Sorting out repairs to your car after an accident that wasn’t your fault can often seem like adding insult to injury.
At Canter Levin & Berg we know from our experiences dealing with thousands of road accident claims that there is a better way to deal with the effects of a car accident. That’s why we put together our accident management service, to help people whose cars have been damaged in road accidents through no fault of their own.
Working with vehicle recovery companies, engineers and a network of garages, we have developed a network that can provide a complete service taking your vehicle from the scene of your accident, inspecting it for damage and, if possible, repairing it to its pre-accident condition and returning it to you. We will also see to it that you are provided with a replacement hire car for you to use in the interim.
If your car has been badly damaged in the accident, it might not be possible for you to drive it to a secure location whilst you organise the repairs. Even in situations where the damage to your car is only minor, it may no longer be road legal if, for example, the indicators or lights are no longer working. Similarly, if the accident has left your car with damage to its steering or suspension, then it may not be safe to drive on the road.
As part of our accident management service, the car accident solicitors at Canter Levin and Berg can arrange for your vehicle to be recovered, either from the scene of the accident, or if you were able to drive afterwards, from your home or place of work.
Recovering a your car after an accident allows an expert vehicle engineer to thoroughly inspect the damage before coming to a decision about whether it is possible for repairs to be made. When making a decision about repairs, the engineer will weigh up the costs of repairing your vehicle against its pre-accident value. If the costs of repairs are estimated to be greater than the value of your vehicle, then it will be declared un-economic to repair.
When getting your vehicle repaired after an accident, there are three important questions to ask:
As expert car accident solicitors, we know the answers you want to these important questions. Our team work with a network of garages and specialist body shops to co-ordinate the repairs to your car, so that it can be returned to you, fully repaired, as quickly as possible after the accident.
Where repairs might take a little longer, or where you need transport very soon after the accident, then we can arrange a hire car for you to use, at no cost to you. We work with several vehicle hire companies so we are able to offer a like-for-like replacement, meaning you get a car you are familiar with until your own vehicle is returned to you.
As good as any repairs are, the fact that your car has been involved in an accident will always have an effect on its value. This effect is known as diminution in value and reflects that fact that a damaged but repaired car will nearly always be worth less than an otherwise identical car that has not been involved in an accident. Your car accident solicitor can provide you with advice about including the diminution in value of your vehicle as part of your overall car accident claim.
