Dealing with insurance

Depending on how your door was dented, you may or may not want to contact your insurance to file a claim. If you’re not exactly sure what to do, Prime Time PDR can help.

If someone else hit your car:

Find proof of the other car dinging you. Look for paint on the other vehicle. Take plenty of pictures, including the damage, the car next to you, the location of each car in relation to each other, the parking lot, and anything else that may be useful in the future.

Ask for surveillance from nearby stores if applicable. If someone admits to it, or you witnessed the accident, get their insurance information and call their insurance company to file a claim.

If your car was hit and you weren’t there to see the hit, or can’t prove it:

After you’ve thoroughly documented the incident, get an estimate with your insurance company first and as quickly as possibly. If the estimate is less than your deductible, do that. If it’s not, it’s a judgement call. Your rates could increase if you report a door ding for them to compensate.

If the damage is significant and clearly a hit and run:

Document the incident and reach out to the authorities. Look for surveillance footage of the incident. If it’s clear that it was a hit and run, contact your insurance provider, as hit and runs are covered by insurance in Texas.

If it’s not significant though, you may still be held accountable. Your rates may increase, so ensure that it is abundantly clear that you have proof that it was a hit and run before contacting your insurance provider. Prime Time PDR offers $500 deductible assistance to help keep your costs as low as possible.

If you dinged your own vehicle:

If you accidentally opened up your car door too close to a pole or other structure, get an estimate at Prime Time PDR before contacting your insurance. In many cases, your insurance rate will increase if you file a claim, so it’s beneficial to check repair costs before moving forward.
