What to do?
by Michelle Braucher
In sept, a triaxle dump truck full of stone plowed into my 2005 Honda Odyssey 20,000 miles in excellent condition. The driver got out of the vehicle to ask where he was to dump the load...and forgot to put on the brake.
My van was towed to the body shop of our choice and estimated damage is 13,000. The contractors had risk managers at the scene that put us in rental cars and falsely assured us that they would make this problem o.k.
The contractors are using AIG insurance however, there deductible is so large that they are paying for the accident rather than submitting it?
Well, I have made it clear from the beginning that I will not ever drive this vehicle and I want it replaced not FIXED.
The rental car company called and said that AIG is no longer paying for the rental car, bc they sent a certified letter with a settlement for 13,070 to have the van fixed. I want it totaled. The unibody frame will never be structurally the same and I will never trust it. Help me, what are my rights?
