SUV Rollover FAQs
Losing a vehicle in an accident can be a disruption not just for the driver but also for their family members. Our cars are central in our ability to be self-sufficient on a day to day basis. Without the ability to get in your car and go, you are left relying on other people. To lose your car in a matter of seconds can throw your whole world into chaos.
Law enforcement will work with you to decide what the best means for moving your vehicle. If the vehicle is in working order and you are physically able, law enforcement will ask you to take it to a repair shop or storage facility. If the vehicle is disabled, towing arrangements will have to be made. Law enforcement officials usually offer to arrange for towing as a courtesy. Make sure to ask where the vehicle is being taken. You will want this information to relay to the insurance company.
The at-fault driver’s insurance company will normally pay the reasonable towing and storage costs associated with your vehicle. As the auto insurance company is determining whether or not your car is a “total loss,” they will continue to pay the storage costs. If the insurance company deems your car to be a total loss, they will move your car from the repair shop to a wrecking yard or free storage area. You will be notified before your car is moved. If you refuse to have your car moved, you will be forced to pay storage from that day forward. BE CAREFUL! If there is uncertainty as to how the accident happened and who was at fault, the insurance company may further investigate the details of the accident. While doing so, the storage fees could be your responsibility!
