Who Pays For The Tow Yard Expense If My Car Is Taken There After An Accident?

January 28, 2022

This is one of those things that no one thinks about after a car accident!  Who pays for the actual tow yard expense and how much does it cost?  The cost of the tow yards vary, but on average it is anywhere from $50 to $100 or more per day to have your car sit there.  The real issue becomes how long can it sit there and who pays for the cost of that?  The answer is the insurance company who caused the accident is the one who pays for that expense.  It is usually picked up and sold for salvage if the car is totaled.  However, if you delay in the “process” of getting the paperwork completed so that it can be moved from the tow yard, you could be held responsible for those days of delay.  The point is, be careful and do not waste time on this issue.
