Car accidents are an unfortunately prevalent fact of life in the United States. Americans love their cars. We love them fast, we love them loud, and we love to drive them recklessly. Consider the fact that the 1901 Mercedes had only a 35 horsepower engine. That is pretty powerful when considering the 1901 to 1906 Oldsmobile which only had a single cylinder, three horsepower engine and was steered with a tiller. When compared with the performance vehicles of our day and age, perhaps it is not surprising that nearly two million adult drivers and their passengers seek treatment from emergency rooms after automobile crashes every year. Many modern vehicles have over 150 horsepower. Automobiles are extremely powerful things that have to be treated with respect.

There are some interesting facts about auto accidents to note. Most accidents happen within three miles of the driver’s house. Further, more men than women receive speeding tickets than their female counterparts. However, more women contest their speeding tickets at traffic court. Regardless of where an accident takes place or what sex the driver is, drivers always have the right to choose their own car collision center to repair their damaged vehicles. Insurances companies cannot dictate to their clientele where they seek out body repair shops. This fact is extremely important when finding the best local body shops to fix up your paint and hardware.

Imagine if insurance companies could mandate such a thing. On one side of your city, say in Miami, there is a paint and body shop that is really well known for the quality of restoration work they do. Subsequently, they are a bit pricier than other shops in their area. This makes up for the added time and effort they put into their customers’ wrecks. On the other hand, the car collision center on the other side of the city does less than perfect work but subsequently charges less. Insurance companies simply want to get off as cheaply as possible. If they were able to tell you where to go, which do you think they would choose?

Hopefully you will not find yourself in a situation that requires you seek the services of a car collision center anytime soon. If you do, however, realize that it is your choice where you go for your restoration services. More information like this.

    I wish I would have known this a few weeks ago. My insurance company conned me into going to this guy in Coral Gables when there is a much better service in North Miami. What a bunch of crooks.

    Aye, that’s the trouble. If you don’t know your rights, all companies will steamroll you to grow their profit as big as possible.
