I was hurt in an auto accident, but what about my property damage? How is that handled?

Most, if not all major car insurance companies have separate departments for property damage (PD) and bodily injury (BI).  You want to make sure you’re talking to the PD adjuster if you have questions about the property damage to your vehicle.  Damage estimates are performed by someone from the PD department of an insurance company, usually within the first week after an accident.  If you disagree with the determination made by the adjuster as to damage, you have the right to file a lawsuit for whatever you believe the damage estimate should have been, but usually those lawsuits are time consuming and most attorneys do not handle that kind of work on a contingency basis.
