I Was In A Car Accident, Not At Fault, But They Will Only Pay The Repair Shop?

Postby dentin57 » Fri Jul 28, 2017 6:42 am

it was about a months and a half ago.
They were deceitful saying that I was at fault, then I showed proof that he was at fault, then they said we were both at fault.
They've finally realized that they can't get away with it, but not they'll only pay the repair shop once I get the car worked on and finished.
I'm like, 'No, you pay me, the person that was wronged'.
But they're arguing that they will only pay for repair shop, and I told them that I would sue for the money to be in my pocket, and more because of what has happened, and what has been said.
I'm going to take them to arbitrary court if they don't cut me the check.
Do I get paid, or does the repair shop HAVE to get paid? Are they screwing me around? No South Carolina state laws says that I have to get repairs in order to receive reparation for damages.

I am not sure who "They" is. If it is the insurance company, it will depend on if the vehicle is financed or not. If it is not financed, you can choose a payout in lieu of repair. If your vehicle is financed, it is at the discretion of the financial institution that has the loan, which they may require it being fixed.


If you choose to get paid in lieu of repair, and there is a charge for whatever work was done to get an estimate, you will be responsible to pay that.

This is coming from the insurance, I assume. They are only responsible for getting your car repaired not putting money in your pocket. If the repair shop they chose is not to your liking then take you car to get an estimate somewhere else. Then the insurance company will pay that repair shop. They don't have to give you money.
