What is the required law on getting estimates on a car that was hit. Are they required to give the other person 3 estimates?...
How many estimates are obtained is typically a matter of insurance practices, which vary by insurance company. Insurance estimates must be reasonable. If an insurance company prepares an estimate of repairs to your vehicle, the estimate must be in an amount reasonably expected to satisfactorily repair the damage. You have a right to a list of the repair shops convenient to you who will satisfactorily complete the repairs at the price estimated by the insurance company.
Some states have tried to enact statutes with protection for the insured. One propsed bill allowed the insured three auto body repair estimates from licensed auto body repair dealers of their choice, and the average cost of these three estimates would have created a "rebuttable presumption" in court that the average estimate is "reasonable."
