Vehicle Property Damage

Vehicle Property Damage is a Critical and Frustrating Part of Every Collision Claim. We Will Help You Through It


Every collision victim has the right to obtain quality vehicle property damage repairs from the shop of their choice using skilled technicians, manufacturer-approved processes, and original factory parts. Insurance companies pay less than what’s owed based on shortcuts, imitation parts, and suppressed labor rates. Consumers choose between safety, the integrity of their vehicle, and full payment for their repair.

Most personal injury attorneys have neither the expertise nor the interest to help their injured clients with their property damage. Galileo Law is different. We believe that quality repair is an important part of our clients’ claims, and we actively engage the insurance companies to fight for full payment at no extra charge. You read that right: if you are injured, we do not charge an attorney’s fee for fighting to get your collision repair and rental paid or get you a fair total loss settlement. Service is our top priority. We don’t believe insurance companies should push our clients around at any stage of their claim.





Your Property Rights After a Collision

When you suffer vehicle property damage, you have the right to control your vehicle repairs or demand a fair settlement for your total loss:

  • Choice of repair shop: you have the right to choose your shop
  • Independent repairs: the insurance company may want you to save money at their “preferred” shop, but you have the right to use an independent shop
  • Quality repairs: the insurance company can’t force your body shop to cut corners by writing an unreasonable estimate or controlling labor rates or repair processes
  • OEM parts: you’re entitled to OEM parts when using after-market parts would mean a bad or unsafe repair
  • Fair value for your totaled car: you deserve a settlement that will actually pay for a comparable replacement
  • Reasonable rental: you’re entitled to a comparable car, not just an “econobox”

We Help When Most Attorneys Don’t

With most law firms, when you ask them about a problem you’re having with your repair or total loss, you’ll hear, “We’re only handling your injury case; you can take care of the property damage yourself.” At best you may get some tips, but not real advocacy. We think that’s wrong, and we think it reflects poorly overall on how much that law firm cares about what you’re going through.

The property repair and total loss process is the insurance company’s first opportunity to set the tone for your claim and pay what it wants to pay instead of what’s fair. Hire an attorney who is willing to fight for your vehicle property damage rights, explain the process, and prevent the insurance company from taking advantage of you. We set the tone for our clients: we are in charge of our client’s rights, not the insurance company, and if the insurance company wants to trample them, they’ll have to go through us first..
