My wife was recently in an auto accident with the Prius. She is ok, just a little bruised up, so anything else that happens is inconsequential compared to her well being. She was at a 3-way intersection, went on the green and another driver ran the red and it her on the driver's side.
Our insurer, AAA, called last night to indicate that the Toyota Collision Center in North Little Rock is going to total the vehicle. AAA is waiting for the documents and photos before they approve that.
I was hoping for a repair, since we don't have arider that will replace our 2010 with a new Prius. AAA will give us current market value for the car.
What's the best way for me to determine market value for the Prius? I'd like to make sure AAA doesn't low ball us.
Now we've got to decide whether to buy a new prius or used. We sure weren't looking to buy a new car now.
AAA does have a rider that would have replaced the Prius with a 2014, but we didn't have that. Does anyone have that kind of rider on their insurance? How expensive is it?
If anyone has any kind of suggestion on how best for us to proceed with this matter, please let us know.
