Auto Insurance Claims: Who Owes Whom?

Insurers don’t owe the repairer anything; insurers owe the vehicle owner, and the vehicle owner owes the repairer for the services rendered and received.

I read a lot of industry articles, and all too often I see comments on what insurance companies owe repairers. But one thing that’s important to remember is the simple fact that insurers don’t owe the repairer anything.
