Accept Auto Insurance Settlement?
The insurance company for the at-fault driver says they will pay $7,000 to repair the driver's side damage to our 2005 Jaguar X-Type (22K miles).
What value will the car have were we to trade it in -- before repairs; after repairs?
I am concerned that we would get back the low-mileage car that we've enjoyed, but that it will be worthless as a trade-in -- due to the history of the damage.
We've yet to get to the medical settlement. My DH had 'chest wall contusions' according to the ER doctor, and he is healing, but our lives have been turned upside down with insurance forms, towing, talking to doctors and the Jaguar dealer, claims, etc. -- plus the shock of the accident!
