please review

Thank you very much for your patience. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Many times, insurance companies are going to work their hardest to pay you the least out for your vehicle. The rights that you do have are the rights to reject their offer and make a counter offer. If you make a counter offer, you should state in your letter that:

  • you do not find the initial settlement offer acceptable;
  • list the reasons why you deserve a higher settlement offer; and
  • include a demand for a higher settlement offer.

You may need to get an independent appraisal on the vehicle to help your case. If that doesn't work, you may need to hire a personal injury attorney who can negotiate on your behalf or possibly even help you bring a case to trial. What other questions did you have for me regarding this?

I’m sry,, right now can’t afford call or I love to... the accident was nov 15th .. 35 Days ago

Oh, that’s not a problem with the phone call. The system automatically asks if you want one, but there is no problem declining the request. Did you get a chance to review my answer?

I reviewed ur response,,, it can be helpful,,, I don’t know if my car in salvage yard , the bill).. my responsibility,,, since not settled,, I appreciate any advise

I understand. You may want to consider just writing a formal demand letter telling them that their offer is too low. There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for a demand letter (click here). It only costs $10 and it is way cheaper than litigation. Did you have any other questions for me at all today?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
