Car Repair Claims

Don't let your insurance company put their profits ahead of your safety

OEM and Safe Repairs

Shortcuts are never a good idea when your family's safety is at stake.

After a collision, following the direction of your vehicle manufacturer (OEM) is the best way to ensure a safe repair. This includes using OEM parts - not junkyard or aftermarket parts.

Junkyard parts and aftermarket parts are generally not tested for safety or reliability. OEM parts, however, are tested and are made by the company that understands your vehicle best.

Safety vs. Cost

Unfortunately, when you make a car repair claim, insurance companies often do not want to pay for OEM parts or procedures. Your insurance company may make you choose between safety and cost - just so they can save money on your property damage claim.

Is Your Insurance Company Refusing to Pay Your Car Repair Claim?

If you made a collision claim or comprehensive claim and your insurance company refuses to pay for:
  • OEM parts
  • OEM procedures
  • Labor rates
  • Safety scans
  • A replacement instead of a repair
  • Other collision-related damage

We may be able to help you with your property damage claim.

Florida law has special protections when your insurance company refuses to pay your car repair claim.

For example, Florida Statute 627.9743(4):

An insurer may not require the use of replacement parts in the repair of a motor vehicle which are not at least equivalent in kind and quality to the damaged parts prior to the loss in terms of fit, appearance, and performance.

In addition, most Florida insurance policies require your insurance company to pay enough to restore your vehicle to its pre-loss condition.

Our Law Firm Specializes in Car Repair Claims

At Irvin & Irvin, we advocate for clients when their insurance company refuses to pay for safe and proper repairs.

We represent clients on contingency in their property damage claim.

This means we never require payment upfront and only are paid if we make a recovery for you.

Under Florida Statute 627.428, your insurance company owes you attorneys' fees, in addition to your claim, if you have to file a lawsuit and are successful.

Whether your insurance company owes you for certain repairs requires a review of your policy, estimates, and other documentation.

Last year I was involved in a bad car accident and the owner of the body shop recommended I call Attorney Andrew Irvin as the insurance company was not paying the total loss claim. The best advise ever.From the moment you meet him he is very attentive and walks you through the entire process.After filling the lawsuit against the Insurance company and battling them for almost 6 months, we received notice that the Ins Company had gone under and closed its doors. That meant that now we had to go through the state insurance program. That resulted in Andrew not being able to claim his fees.Regardless of those news, Andrew told me that he was going to continue the case until it was finished even when he was not getting paid. I offered emphatically to pay him out my pocket, but he strongly refused.Today, one year later, we got the settlement from the State and the case is resolved, and all along Andrew stood by me, advising me, fighting the leasing company and pushing the state to pay.This is something you don't see any more. Needless to say that Andrew has forever gained my trust, respect and friendship.If you are reading this, and find yourself in need of a true devoted Attorney, just call Andrew, he will take good care of you as he did with me and my family. I am forever in his debt.Thank you Andrew

I worked with attorney Andrew Irvin to reach a fair settlement for the total loss of my vehicle in an accident. The insurance adjusters gave me a difficult time, but Mr. Irvin shared his knowledge and expertise and helped me fight their dishonest negotiation tactics each step of the way. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with similar property damage claims.
