    Finding the right mechanic after an accident, and how to claim compensation through a law firm

    Finding the right mechanic after a serious accident is the best way for you to get your car repaired for a good price, and completely safely so that you can be sure that you won’t run into further problems when you get back on the road. You also want a friendly and helpful experience that takes some of the stress and upset out of dealing with what has happened in your accident, and a quick service so that you can file for insurance and make any compensation claims that you feel are necessary.

    • Ask friends and family. If they are car owners and live close to you, they should probably have some recommendations for mechanics that they have had experience with in the past. These recommendations will be far better than any you could get from strangers.
    • Look online. Do your research and look online for mechanics in your area which seem to be well-established and have a steady client base. Those which have too many free appointments, especially at weekends, may not be worth your time.
    • Ask for a quote. Call and ask for a quote based on what you think is wrong with the car. This means that you won’t be charged for the mechanic doing a quote, and you should get a rough estimate of what it will cost to fix the car. You can then compare prices until you can find a good price for a mechanic.
    • Ask for a time frame. Never go to a mechanic who can literally not give you any idea how long it will take to fix your car. You should always be able to have a rough estimate of when you can have your car back, otherwise you may find that your car sits in the shop for weeks or even months.
