When Geico cancelled me I was to take out another policy with them changing the deductable from 500 which I curently had to 1000 I assumed the olicy was inforced, it according to Geico wasnt it was always deducted from my bank account I took this for granted without checking Ive always had car ins. it was not taken out. Why did the US Bank not notify me they are the lein holder? Geico stated the US Bank was notified in March of 2012, The other Im sure will indeed file against Geico what happens now ,the US Bank claims they were not notified?

Response: The bank as the lien holder does not have any obligation to notify you. Also, if the bank was not notified in the first place, the bank does not have any way to know that you do not have any insurance and take action to make sure that you are insured including paying for the premium. If your insurance was cancelled, the insurer should have notified you so that you can rectify it. However, you bear ultimate responsibility to insure that your premiums are paid and your policy is in effect. If you no longer have insurance at the time of the accident, then the insurance company would refuse to cover the accident and you would be personally responsible for the damages. If you have assets, the other motorist would try to reach them to cover the damages if you fail to pay for the damages, regrettably.


I am sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I had to take a lunch break.
