If there is hidden damage on my car who will pay for the additional cost?
Hidden damage is very common in collision repair due to the complexity of today’s vehicles. The initial repair estimate is just that, an estimate. All insurance companies understand this and expect supplemental costs on significant repairs. In most situations the only portion of the repair bill you would pay would be any applicable deductible. Any additional repair costs will be paid by the insurance company as it is their responsibility to return your vehicle to pre-loss condition.
