If you have suffered a car wreck in Brownsville, you may be in a position where you need to use authorized body shop repairs to sort out the damage. Most insurance companies have their own authorized body shop network, so you will be incentivized to use their system. In fact, if the accident was not your fault, they may try to insist that you use their authorized body shop repairs system.
If you think about it, this makes sense to the insurance companies and also the authorized body shop networks. Many auto body shops will offer special rates to an insurance company in order to gain more business. So, the insurance company will need to pay less in order to get the work done, and the body shop will get a steady flow of work which it might not otherwise get. That is why the insurance company may try to insist that you use their authorized body shop repairs network.
However, before you get to that stage, there is a lot of work to be done. Insurance companies do not like to pay out – big time! It’s pretty obvious that the more they pay out, the less profit they make. So, they will take all the steps that they possibly can in order to reduce or even wipe out your claim, even though the accident was not your fault. This is especially true in Texas because between poor roads, aggressive drivers, and lots of trucks on the highways, Texas is ground zero for a lot of car accidents!
Hundreds Of Thousands Of Dollars
And we are not necessarily just talking damage to your car here. You may have suffered an injury or injuries as a result of the accident, and this could mean that you might be in line for a payment running into the hundreds of thousands of dollars if the injuries are serious and life changing.
So, the insurance company concerned is going to take every possible step to avoid paying you – or at least reduce your claim as much as possible. This is even true in a family-friendly “small” town like Harlingen, San Benito, or Brownsville. Here in the Rio Grande Valley, we think of everyone as “family” until or unless money or insurance may be involved (sadly).
