South Sacramento Auto Accident FAQ

Can I get my vehicle repaired at any auto shop after an accident?

Yes, you can get your car repaired at any auto body shop after an accident. Your insurance company will work directly with the body shop or have you submitted an invoice for the repair cost. This is the general rule if you are recovering the repair costs from the at-fault party's insurer. But you can also file a claim with your own insurance company.

Should I admit fault in an auto accident?

No, do not admit fault for a car accident, even if you think you have caused it. You may not know all the circumstances and facts surrounding the accident. If you admit fault, you or your insurance company will be liable for paying for the damages. Fault will be determined upon further investigation.
