Advice Needed On Car Accident

October 24th, 2018 at 12:49 am

It's been a swell couple of days around here. Sunday morning on the way to church my car died. Three times. I was able to get it restarted and home, but have been driving my DH's beater (and I do mean beater) ever since. My car is no showroom special. It's a Volvo station wagon with a cool 153,000 miles on it, but I love it. Today it went to a new auto shop. We got an estimate on it and scheduled a repair for Friday. It needs about $800 work. However, on the way to pick up my husband, the shop's driver got into an accident with my car. Not sure whose fault it is, but it was a multi-car accident and we're waiting on the police report and condition of the car. In the meantime we have a loaner.

So, I know usually the insurance follows the car, but is this a special situation? Should the shop's insurance or the at-fault driver pay? Should we call an attorney?

I've called my insurance agent and left a message, but I don't know much right now. Advice?

    I think your insurance would cover it, but I'm not positive.

    I don't have the answer, but I'm so sorry this happened to you!

    Wow, that's a problem I have no answer for. So sorry it happened though.

    Did you find out who is responsible yet? I would think the repair shop's insurance would have to cover it if their driver was at fault. The vehicle was still in their possession.

    I would think the repair shop is responsible. So sorry. That's a shame.
