Can I control whether my car is repaired or replaced following a Florida car accident?Return to FAQ Videos
ou can usually pick the shop where your vehicle will be repaired. However, the decision to replace the vehicle or to total the vehicle is made by the insurance company. What they do is they base the decision on the Blue Book value of the vehicle versus the repair value of the vehicle and then make a decision accordingly. An attorney should be able to help you with negotiating a fair replacement value of your vehicle as well as the lost value of the vehicle as a result of the damage to it.
