After an accident, you may find that your vehicle is totaled, which means that it will cost more than it’s worth to repair it. However, your insurance company may not agree with this assessment and might push for you to try and repair it or to pay you less. Knowing when you need a total loss appraisal can help you make the most of your settlement with your insurance company.
Your Insurance Payout is Less Than the Value of the Car
Sometimes, an insurance company will claim that your vehicle is worth less totaled than it actually is. When this happens, you need a professional opinion to help bolster your case. An appraiser can give you an impartial evaluation.
The Insurance Company is Pushing for Repairs
An insurance company will sometimes push to have the vehicle repaired instead of totaling it. This may or may not be the best course of action for you, depending on your situation. Having an appraiser assess the damage will help you get the best payout.
The Settlement is Taking Too Long
Your insurance company may delay your payout for any number of reasons. With a total loss situation, the process can take even longer than usual. Getting a total loss appraisal can help speed things along so you can move on with your life.
