BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

FOX6 News has a consumer alert for those who find their vehicles damaged after having to abandon them during this week's snowstorm.

Insurance agents tell us the first thing to do is to take pictures of your vehicle wherever it is located. Try to take images that show the position of the vehicle and the location of the damage.

Next, get an estimate from a body shop approved by your insurance company. If the total amount of the damage is more than your deductible, then call your insurance company and file a claim.
