Ambulance Chasers

My daughter's little accident happened two weeks ago. The girls were fine. The damage to her vehicle is estimated at $2,400. We will pay the $1,000 deductible and then should be reimbursed later down the road. It is a hassle and I am not happy with the insurance process. It may be time to go Insurance shopping, which is sad as we have been with the same provider for over 26 years. By the way, our agent hasn't called once to see if Emily was okay. He is aware of the accident.

Now, the downpour of Attorney Letters. Seriously, we are getting them daily. As well as a couple of "whiplash experts wanting to have her checked out. The attorneys say the same thing: "Insurance companies are looking for their best interest not yours, call us before making your statement!". "Don't get taken an advantage of!"

Give me a break!

Aren't they all looking for their best interest as well?

Emily is overwhelmed. I am not giving her any more of these letters. They are going straight in the trash where they belong.

The lawyers are definitely making a pitch in their own best interests. I'm so glad your daughter has you to shield her from all that terrible energy.

Glad she's OK. Thank goodness!

Yes indeed it's ridiculous. Unfortunately it's become like this because of all of the people who sue needlessly and a judicial system that rewards the ridiculous.

I'm so glad that your daughter wasn't hurt and that things are working out with the insurance, though slowly and uncaringly.

Blessings to you and your family,
Linda

HEY,JAN! I MUST SAY THAT YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL AND PROTECT YOUR INTREST AND I'M NOT A GREEDY PERSON! WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH THIS CRAP MORE THAN ONCE WITH YOUNG JESSE. THE LAST ONE WENT SMOOTHLY BECAUSE I INSISTED TAKING HIM TO THE ER TO BE EVALUATED. THE INSURANCE OF THE OTHER GIRL PAID UP AS THEY SHOULD HAVE....THE OTHER ONE OVER A YEAR AND A HALF NOW IS IN ARBITRATION....SHE HIT MY SON IN AN INTERSECTION AND TOTALLED OUR SUBURBAN AND WAS SITED AT THE SCENE FOR FAILURE TO YEILD....OK...THEN CHANGED HER STORY AND GOT SOME WITNESSES FROM GOD KNOWS WHERE! WE ENDED UP HAVING TO BUY A NEW SUBURBAN...LIKE WE WERE WANTING TO DO THAT AND DIDN'T HAVE CAR RENTAL EITHER...I LOVE YOU JAN AND YOU KNOW I'M A FAIR AND DECENT PERSON....BEWARE...ALSO, REMEMBER THE ACCIDENTS I WAS INVOLVED IN DURING OUR VU YEARS....I NOW HAVE HORRIBLE NECK AND BACK PAIN DAILY.
