Both personal injury expenses and property damage have to be tallied up and recovered after an automobile accident. Some states have no-fault insurance where a vehicle's insurer pays for the damage regardless of who was at fault for the accident. If your own automobile or vehicle was not a part of the accident and no-fault coverage is not available, then the equation is a lot simpler. The other driver or his insurer has to pay for the damage to other property you own. A lawsuit may be required if the other party's insurer is unwilling to cover the damage.

Listed below are the methods used to measure how much compensation is required for property damage:
How much can be recovered depends on the cost required to bring the vehicle or other property back to its original condition before the accident. Reasonable repair charges are the first avenue to be explored, and a majority of accident damages are settled based on the repair costs. If that is not a realistic solution and the property is considered "totaled," then it may have to be replaced or paid for in full.
