       After the Accident

  • Report your claim to the responsible party's insurance company, if your using insurance to cover the damage.
  • Confirm that the insurer is accepting responsibility to pay the claim.
  • Provide us with the insurer's claim number, contact name and phone number.
  • Under Washington law, no insurer can require you to take your vehicle to a specific shop for an estimate or repairs.

      You Authorize Repairs.

  • Tell the insurer that you have chosen Brogan Auto Repair for the repair on your vehicle. (the insurer may imply that you need to go to a particular shop for your estimate or repairs); YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THIS. You can let the insurer know they can inspect the vehicle at Brogan Auto Repair, your home or place of work. We can help coordinate this with you.
  • Provide us with a copy of the insurer estimate they have given you.
  • We schedual a repair drop off date and give you an estimated time of  completion. (granted, all parts are available and in stock)
  • Let us know if you have received any payment for repairs. Every insurer is different. Some times payment is sent directly to us, other times it may be sent to you.
