If you've been in an auto accident, you may have already heard the term "pre-loss condition" from your insurance provider or collision center. But, what exactly does that mean?
Pre-loss condition is supposed to mean, “after an accident, your automobile will be repaired as close as possible to the condition your vehicle was in the instant prior to an accident." You are entitled to be "made whole" by restoring your vehicle to its pre-loss condition or by compensating you if that cannot be accomplished. The insurance company is not obligated to make it better than it was. However, they can not force you to accept anything less.
