Re: Car Accident & Insurance Claim Questions I was involved in a side-swipe a few months ago that was completely the other driver's fault. I notified my insurance agency of the accident and gave them all the driver's information as well as the insurance company.
I had to get a rental car while my car was in for repairs, and my insurance company covered it all. (Though I could drive it away from the scene of the accident) By the time the car was finished, the other insurance company accept liability so I didn't even have to pay a deductible.
In short, I would recommend that you let your insurance company handle all payment discrepancies. Let your insurance representative work with their company. I had a bit of contact with the other driver's insurance, and I told them to work out payments via my insurance company. You may not be able to fight for towing costs, but your insurance company will.
What smells like blue?
