If through no fault of your own, your vehicle has been hit in a car accident in South Florida, this guide will help you to understand your options to get your car fixed. Are you looking for a Palm Beach county rental car company? If you were in a Delray Beach accident and the Delray Beach car accident is not your fault, you will be looking to get your car fixed through the at-fault driver's insurance company. For example, let's say you are driving on Linton Blvd. or Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach and are rear-ended or tboned by a driver who has Geico insurance. The police officer arrives at the scene and you exchange insurance with the at-fault driver. You will want to obtain the driver exchange form from the police officer. If you need the police report or driver exchange form you can contact the Delray Beach Police Department at 300 West Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach, FL 33444. The phone number to the Delray Beach police department is 561-243-7888. You may also be able to obtain the police report for free by making a public record's request through through Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Florida Highway Safety Motor Vehicles website offers the report for purchase. The cost to purchase is $12.00. Our law firm advances the costs for clients who have been injured in accidents. The police report should contain the driver's insurance company and Geico policy number. You can then either call Geico yourself or contact our office at 561-588-2781 for a free consultation to set up a time for the Geico insurance adjuster to perform an evaluation of the vehicle damage. My advice is to always speak to a Delray Beach car accident lawyer prior to speaking to a insurance company. Our main office is located near the Delray Beach Courthouse. The phone number to set up a Geico claim is 800-841-3000. The Geico office is located in Lakeland Florida and the Geico address for claims is:
ATTN: Florida Underwriting
PO BOX 9105
Macon, GA 31208-9105
Geico Florida Insurance Claims Address
After the GEICO property damage insurance adjuster assesses the property damage to your vehicle, he or she will arrange for a vehicle repair shop to fix your vehicle if the vehicle is not declared a total loss. You do not have to use one of Geico's repair shops to have your vehicle fix. You are allowed to choose which auto body shop you want to use to have the vehicle fixed. Do not let the Geico adjuster pressure you into using one of the repair shops in their preferred network. While the car is getting fixed, Geico will provide you with a complementary rental vehicle through Enterprise for about thirty days. However, if the vehicle is not fixed within this time frame then you may be responsible for additional rental car costs. We can help you to get an extension to drive for a longer period of time. Finally, the Geico insurance adjuster may claim that your vehicle was too badly damaged to justify fixing the vehicle. For example, if the value of your vehicle is only $5,000 but it costs $10,000 to fix, then Geico will simply declare your vehicle a total loss and issue you a check for the value of the vehicle.
If you would like to speak to Enterprise rental car yourself regarding a rental car, you can call your local Enterprise location. Make sure to keep the invoice so that you can supply the invoice to Geico for the rental car reimbursement. Here is a list of local Delay Beach rental car companies.
