If The Insurance Company Pays Me, Do I Have To Have The Vehicle Fixed?

Insurance providers vary in their policies regarding payment of damage amounts. Your insurance provider may have language in your policy regarding whether it is necessary to repair your vehicle. Some insurance providers will not issue a reimbursement check in your name only. Sometimes the insurance provider will make the check out to both you and the repair shop. Since there is no universal rule, it is important to carefully read your policy.
