As a Pennsylvania driver your rights are protected by the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicles Physical Damages Appraisers Act. The law states that: No appraiser or employer shall require that repairs be made in any specified repair shop.
An appraiser or his employer shall not have any direct or indirect conflict of interest in the making of an appraisal He or she shall not, in any manner whatsoever, attempt to directly or indirectly coerce, persuade, induce, or advise the consumer that appraised vehicle damage must be, should be, or could be repaired at any particular location or by any particular individual or business.
The appraiser shall leave a legible copy of his appraisal with that of the repair shop selected by the consumer to make the repairs and also furnish a copy to the owner of the vehicle . The appraisal shall include an itemized listing of all damages, specifying those parts to be replaced or repaired. Because an appraiser is charged with a high degree of regard for the public safety, the operational safety of the vehicle shall be paramount in considering the specification of new parts.
if you have been the victim of an auto accident, it's the insurance company's job to return your car to the same state as before. They must do whatever it takes to make your car whole again, including :
* Pay for all parts, labor, and materials required to return your car to pre-accident condition.
* Allow you to choose a repair shop which guarantees its work, uses only original factory parts, and industry approved repair procedures.
* A rental car comparable to your damaged vehicle.
Don't get hassled or misled by an insurance company. Shortcuts and cost-saving measures will ultimately compromise the safety and appearance of your vehicle.
Not all damage is repairable. When there is no way to restore a third party claimant's car to road-worthy condition, or the cost of repairs exceed 80% of the value, the insurance company must replace your vehicle with one of a similar kind and quality, or reimburse you for its fair market value.
To choose which body shop repairs your car and to select a shop that you know and trust.
For any insurance company to pressure you to go to their recommended shop.
For any insurance company to insist on the use of after market parts.
