My car was totaled in a collision, The other drivers State Farm agency offered me a payoff settlement, should I just accept the figures they offered me on my 2000 Chevy Monte Carlo, they deducted quite a bit for previous damages on the car that seems quite high?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jennifer  Justice- Haley, Body Shop Owner/Operator at Co-Owner of Elite Collision Service, Inc Liz, Did you already have estimates on the prior damages? If not,have a couple of estimates done on those prior damages for some objective pricing. Also,check out your car*s estimated value (pre-accident)on-line at kbb.com or nada.com or call your local dealer. Good Luck!
