My question involves insurance law for the state of: Oklahoma
Earlier today my car was hit while it was parked in a parking spot. The other driver admitted fault and gave me all of his information. I've already called his insurance and they've begun the claims process and should be calling me back tomorrow.I've never been involved in a car accident, so I have no knowledge of how this process works.
Does his insurance company have final say in where it will be repaired? Or do I have the ability to determine where it will be repaired (as long as its reasonable)?
If I don't approve of where his insurance company wants to send it, what steps should I take? And what options do I have?
I work as a landman, so I'm traveling between counties a lot. So not having a car, even for a few days, would make me unable to do my job. I assume I'd talk to his insurance about getting a loaner while its being repaired?
