Vehicle damage after collision
Type of damage
The main distinction is between minor damage, accidental damage and accidental damage with personal injury.
In the case of minor damage to your vehicle, this is referred to as minor damage.
In these cases, the party liable to pay damages (often insurance) does not always cover the costs of an expert opinion.
If you want to be certain about this, you are welcome to arrange a non-binding inspection appointment.
In cases where the repair costs are below the minor damage limit, I will prepare a cost estimate as an alternative
The costs for this are usually accepted by the insurer.
Here you are legally entitled to select an expert for the preparation of an expert opinion.
The costs of the expert are usually covered by the opposing insurance company which is obliged to settle the claim.
Normally, the preparation of a damage report is completed within a short period of time (one to three days).
The transmission of the report is now mainly done electronically.
