FAQ about Road Accidents in Baltimore, MD
Here’s some important information to know before having your vehicle repaired:
My insurance suggests a specific collision center; do I have to use their collision center?
You have the right to take your vehicle to the collision center of your choice. Your insurance company cannot require you to use a specific center. They can only make recommendations.
Can I drive my vehicle?
Never drive a vehicle that could be unsafe because of accident damages. Jerry’s Collision Center will gladly make arrangements for your vehicle to be towed.
Do I have to visit my insurance company’s claim center before the collision center?
Some insurance companies may want you to visit their drive-in claims center before your vehicle is repaired. You can do this, or you may leave your vehicle at Jerry’s Collision Center and ask the agent to come inspect the vehicle. Jerry’s works closely with many insurance companies to keep close communication and advise them of all repairs that need to be completed.
Can I get multiple estimates for my vehicles?
As a customer, you can get more than one estimate on your vehicle. You have the right to get as many comparison estimates as you like to assist you with making an informed decision about your repair options.
Why is there a significant difference in repair estimates?
Differences in repair estimates are very common. Lower estimates may not include all necessary work. If you have any questions regarding the differences, please ask a Jerry’s Collision Center Advisor.
