Question

Are car diagnostics covered by the at-fault party?

I was hit on May 6, 2019 on a military base. The car backed into my car and the driver took responsibility as at-fault. A police report was written and there are witnesses. My transmission began slipping days later. Can I get a free transmission diagnostics or can the military insurance company refund me if I have to pay for collision diagnostic?

If the diagnostics are part of your car's repair and the other party is at fault, this expense should be covered by the insurance company. However, this is specific to your claim and you will need to contact the company that's paying for the claim to find out the specifics of what they will cover. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
