Default First accident ):

Got in my first accident today ):
Rear ended. There's like a 10 inch by 3 inch scuff mark, probably messed up my back up sensors and this flap is just dangling off the bottom of the bumper.
On the bright side, I wasn't at fault and I have full coverage.
Just kind of wanted to know the steps on how this work. I already called the insurance company.
Will they fix everything? (Sensor, scratch, flap)
Or just check to see if everything is solid?
Thanks

Oh no! That sucks man! You JUST fixed that big scratch on your rear panel too huh? Glad you're okay though since it wasn't a major accident.

Nice, at least you got their information and everything right? Insurance should fix everything. Anything that's not how it was from the factory *should* be fixed/replaced. It's not your fault, so you don't pay a dime. Get everything you can fixed lol.

Haha you can sure as hell try, but I think scratches on the side of your car would be hard to explain when you were in a fender bender lol.

Disagree with Byakuya, You most certainly can work with the bodyshop on a deal to fix the scratches while you are having the rear repaired.

I scraped underneath the front fender a while back. How could I incorporate that into the story? x)

It's not really a big deal. If they can do it, then that's great. If I gotta pay a few hundred, I could get around to it myself in a few weeks or after winter.

My main concern right now is the damage to the bumper and sensors.

I feel like if you're going to be paying for some of the repair, then get the whole thing done. If they're doing it for free, don't try to push your luck.

How long should I wait before I take it in?

The point is that at the time they are mixing paint and preping the car, its not more difficult to touch up and blend a different area of the same car. Why wait at all?
