Total Loss Settlement Taken Away? Is it possible?
My car was stolen on June 19, 2010. My insurance company said they would start the settlement 14 days after the car was stolen.
I finally got a settlement on July 8, 2010. The police found my car on the 9th. I had already signed my title over and mailed it to them.
I also had begun the process of purchasing another car. Now, they want to force the vehicle back to me, after I had already agreed to the settlement. No payment was issued. Is there any way I can fight this?
Well, I believe you can hold them to the settlement. When the settled, this was final. You gave them the title. I think their actions constitute a waiver.
At any rate, to make sure, you want to talk to a lawyer. If they settled, it's over. Talked to an attorney about this. You may have rights here.
