Should I take my vehicle to just “any” body shop for an estimate?

Some insurance companies have repair centers where you drive in and get out quickly so they can reduce the amount the insurance company pays out in parts and labor on the repairs.  It is in your best interest to take your vehicle to a reliable repair shop that will open up, if necessary, and inspect interior, hidden damage you might be missing so you get the most complete evaluation, estimate, and repair.  You are better off going to a independent shop that will do the repair correctly for you.

Do I have to answer questions from the At-Fault Insurance Company after I've hired/retained an attorney?

Once a contract is signed, our firm will send a letter to the involved insurance companies making them aware you’ve retained counsel.  If the phone calls continue, you can tell them that all calls need to be directed to your attorney.
