I was at-fault in a car accident. How much will it cost to repair? Should I report to insurance?

Postby denzell6 » Sat Sep 17, 2011 8:59 am

Here are the details of what happened:
- I hit an illegally parked car, popping the side mirror out of it's place and scratching it slightly on the side.
- My car's tire blew and the axle is completely f**ked up. It looks like my car is doing a turn-out in ballet. I also have to fix the bumper which popped out of place and the mirror popped out of place. How much will it cost if I take it to the Volvo dealership?
- My car is a black 2006 Volvo V50 stationwagon.
- Should I report this to insurance? How much will my insurance increase if I have AAA and this is my first accident on record?

Your insurance rates (20% ?? so they recover their money in 5 years, but risk losing you as a customer ? so 10%? idk. ) but you will get your car fixed correctly and know that it is safe to drive.

Your insurance company also negotiates prices while using the better repair places.

Getting new car insurance is a fast and easy way to save or lower overall expenses. You can get a easy estimate online they always give you lots of quotes.

report it to your insurance-let them handle the details--1st accident -shouldn't be a problem unless you are male under 25 then they may want to jack you around a bit--still no big deal--if they get horsy let them fix car and then get different insurance
