So...do I just fix it myself and have the shop recharge the AC or do I have the insurance deal with it? Friggin Coyote V8...
The same can be said about listening to your Ins Agent.... because the above is BS. I had a deer jump out from the side of the woods at 55mph, plowed into the passenger side of my 2011 Genesis coupe back in 2015. It demolished the rear 1/4, the passenger side door skin and dented front fender. It hit so hard it also cracked the rear interior plastic on that same side. Over $7k in damages. I have pics posted on here in other animal strike threads.Your rates should not go up if the accident was not your fault. Usually critters fall into that category.
However. And this is the most important thing any of you will read on the Internet today:
Do not take advice on insurance from mysterious strangers on the Internet. Insurance laws, rules and regulations vary from state to state. On top of that, every company has its own policies.
I'm with the suggestion above - get an estimate first, and then decide.
This was great LOL.A Coyote crashing into a Coyote driven by a StarDog....coincidences are real.
Headlight list is about $750.Getting estimates is not a bad idea. They can often give some indication of damage you may not see or think of.
As for your repair cost, if they used a new, factory headlight then that was probably $1200-$1400 of the price for the part alone. Assuming it's the LED one
