What questions should you ask your car insurance adjuster before your auto body repair starts in Pasadena CA?
My car was rear ended last night while traveling at highway speeds. The car is a 2013 Hyundai Elantra with fairly low mileage. I don't know much about cars but both quarter panels are damage and I know that the rear driver side door no longer opens. The trunk did open but does not appear to be sitting right on the car. The car is currently at a tow yard and will be taken to a Pasadena California auto body shop and examined by am insurance adjustor. I'm just wondering what I should ask the adjuster to look for as far as ensuring that the car is safe to repair.
