What do you do if your insurance company drops you after complaining about body shop repairs?
I was in an accident and had to get my vehicle repaired. When I got my vehicle back, I wasn’t happy with it. I complained to my insurance about the quality and safety of my vehicle after repairs. After that, they dropped me. What should I do?
Oh no! I’m sorry to hear you’re having issues with your car insurance company. I know accidents are stressful, so losing insurance coverage after an accident isn’t ideal. That said, car insurance companies are subject to strict state guidelines, so legally, there are only a few reasons why an insurance company can drop you.
The first thing you should do is contact your insurance company. An agent or representative should give you an exact reason why they denied your coverage. Also, check your mail. Insurance companies must send a letter explaining why your coverage ended.
You should also reach out to the body shop if you haven’t already. They are responsible for the quality of their work. If your vehicle still isn’t fixed, they should be willing to look at it again to address any issues with their work.
Beyond that, you’ll need to get insurance coverage as soon as possible. Driving without car insurance can result in fines, tickets, license suspension, and registration suspension.
