Insurance company claims

Q: I recently had an accident and the insurance of the person responsible is paying me for the repair of my car. The amount they are paying is according to the quote I gave them which I got from the panel beaters. I did not ask the panel beater to inflate his Quote. If I now manage to get the panel beater to reduce his price, can I use the extra money or do I have to return it to the Insurance Company?


A: You do not have to return the money to the insurance company.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
