Now I realize never to trust any insurance company after
being involved in a car accident wheather your dealing with
your own insurance company or someone who hit you and
it was their fault.
It was their fault and the insurance company
admitted it. Both my son and I were hurt. I needed therapy
for almost a year and I'm still not completely healed. They
kept calling me to settle. They said on these type of claims
you can only collect $500. And they said several other
things to us, we now know they were all lies.
To make a long story short, We finally got a total of
approximately $7,000. This took a year of arguing. I
realized from someone else who is not an attorney, that you
must keep on them and complain right to the top of the
You see, if I had hired a lawyer, it would have cost
the insurance company more than $5,000 to just to fight this
with a lawyer. If I had given this case to a lawyer I would
have collected probably $20,000 minus attorneys 1/3 fee
and their costs. I would have ended up with more and
probably have waited over 2 years to collect.
I've also spoken with several others who have
Progressive insurance as their insurance, that their own
insureds have a hard time collecting from them. This even a
known fact in the industry among lawyers. Hire a lawyer.
Never trust the insurance company, even if its your own
insurance company. That's, Progressive insurance company.
