Attorney Scott Wright 321-723-1997 http://www.attorneyscottwright.com/ Hi. I'm attorney Scott Wright. You've been in an accident, and your car of your truck has been badly damaged, but you don't want your vehicle totaled. You're wondering what you can do. Keep in mind that many insurance companies total-loss vehicles where the cost of repairs fall between 50% and 80% of the value of the car at the time of the collision. So, what can you do? One is to attempt to negotiate an increase in the value of your car. Another alternative is to negotiate a decrease in the cost of repairs. Perhaps you can change the scope of the work that will be done to fix the damage to your vehicle. Different body shops may charge different amounts for the repair. If you'd like to discuss the specifics of your case, feel free to give me a call. You can reach me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 321-723-1997. I look forward to speaking with you.
