Okay, so as many of you know I was in a car accident on October 15th.
I've been dealing with this guy's insurance company for a month now.
From sending them estimates, to playing phone tag, ect ect. Well, I
finally take my car to the ford body shop to get an estimate done.
About 1300 in damage. Very well. I get a check in the mail made out
to "Manay". Uh. Last time I Checked, my name was RANAY. So, I called
his insurance lady and she said to try to cash it. If the shop won't
take it, I will have to wait a week for that check to cancel, 3 days to
issue a new one, and another week to verify it. I was also told that
because I'm not 25, they probably can't rent me a car, but to go ahead
and call and see.
I call Enterprise. They said they can rent me a car only if I have
full coverage and a max. 500 deductible on the car I am replacing.
Which I don't. So I call my insurance and they said that it would be
13 extra dollars a day for the full coverage on the car. But, his
insurance is only going to give me 25 dollars a day for the rental
[which is like.. Honda Civic type rental. Ugh.], and probably won't
give me the extra 13.
However, his insurance said that they will
give me a check for 75 dollars to help cover my own transportation
expenses while my car is in the shop - which is equal to the 25/day.
So, now - since their office is closed - I have to call back tomorrow
and see what the heck I'm going to do.
But, they are sending me
a 250 dollar check for the "inconvienence" plus missed wages. Which
is a lot less than 250 dollars - so.. Rock on!
I hope that made sense. I am just furious right now.
And ontop of that - when he hit me he broke my Odometer. But they
won't fix it because "We've seen cars that have been totaled, but their
odometers were fine!".
UGGH. My car was in PERFECT CONDITION. IT'S A SHOW CAR AND IT WINS TROPHIES. THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT. [Minus some paint swirls.]
