Insurance Carrier Shorts Accident Victim on Total Loss

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 27, 2014

Texas! The great big state that claims to "take care of it's own"! The state where you can shoot first and ask questions later! Where else can someone shoot and kill a repossession agent in their driveway with a high powered rifle and claim "I was protecting my property"? Here is something almost as absurd…

DamageMAX found a nice little loophole in the Texas Insurance Regulations this week that allow their drivers to get hosed by insurance companies!

Sherry R. had a nice 2011 BMW 328i Convertible with low mileage. She was minding her own business when an individual blew through a red light and smashed into her pristine BMW. Sherry purchased comprehensive insurance coverage and of course had "uninsured motorist" coverage as well, but as her luck would have it she didn't have enough insurance. The individual that hit Sherry was 100% at fault and had basic liability insurance only. Because the other driver was at fault, their insurance carrier took over the settlement of Sherry's claim. What they told Sherry was shocking….while Sherry's car was a "total loss", the most that they could give her was $25,000 because that was the maximum that their policy holder had for property damage? That's right folks! Too bad on Sherry! She had a $32,000 vehicle that is a total loss that she will only get paid $25,000 for it ! To add insult to injury, this company told her that she had to pay the tow from the scene of the accident and all the storage associated with her vehicle. She even had to eat the bill for her own rental vehicle! They basically wrote her a check for $25,000 and left her to clean up the mess created by their policy holder.

DamageMAX came to her rescue and purchased her wrecked BMW for $7,000 and paid to haul it off, but Sherry lost money on the deal as she battled for 6 weeks with the responsible party's insurance carrier.

Somehow it seems wrong that her insurance company didn't see fit to make up the difference and total her car when she had premium coverage. It also seems ridiculous that the state of Texas would allow a resident of their Great State to get hosed by an insurance carrier.

Don't Commit Insurance Fraud

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 27, 2014

You just made your last payment on your 2009 Honda CRV and its got 100,000 miles so you try to save a few bucks and you dropped collision coverage. The next day, you come out to get in your car and it's been side-swiped and it's no longer drivable. Talk about bad luck! You weren't even driving it??? You are gonna lose your car now because you can't afford to fix your car, it will cost thousands of dollars. What will you do?

Whatever you do, don't commit insurance fraud. The temptation to call your insurance company and reinstate your collision coverage will cross your mind – don't do this! Its illegal and there are stiff penalties including jail time for committing insurance fraud.

Always Tow Your Wrecked Car to a Dealership

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 24, 2014

Here's more on the corruption that runs rampant in the towing and storage industry (click here)

You just had an accident or your car is broken down and you are stranded, the first decision is to maintain your safety but who do you call for help?

If your trouble is mechanical, calling the police is not the answer. Call your roadside assistance company (AAA) if you have it or call a tow company and have it towed to a dealership. NEVER LET THEM TAKE IT WHERE THEY WANT- even if it's free!!! Tow your wrecked vehicle to a dealership, you always have the option of refusing the repair and removing your vehicle. Take the vehicle to your home or a reputable automobile dealer. If the vehicle is wrecked, the tow truck driver will be pushing you hard to take it to a body shop he knows – DO NOT ACCEPT THIS – TAKE YOUR VEHICLE TO THE DEALER. If your car is Ford, go to a Ford dealership, it's a much safer bet than some grease monkey's buddy that will scam you and pay the tow truck driver for dropping your car at their yard. They want your car because they want to charge you storage, disassemble your wrecked vehicle and charge you outrageous fees to put it back together. They will also charge you removal fees, administrative fees and any other fee they can pack into the bill that must be paid to get your vehicle back!

If you have a wrecked vehicle, you may have to call the police. The police will call a designated tow company that owns that stretch of road way by contract. This will cost you a lot of money! Better to call your tow company first and then the police if possible. Always Tow Your Damaged vehicle to a dealership. New Car dealers will not scam you for storage and try to get you to give them your title. They may sell you on the idea of buying a new or used car, but they don't scam people like the clowns in the article above.

Once your damaged vehicle is in a safe, storage free location call DamageMAX.com. At DamageMAX we buy any car, in any condition and we pay to tow it away. If you call DamageMAX, we can buy your car with a single phone call and funds are guaranteed.

DamageMAX is the leading wrecked vehicle buyer.

Is My Car Totaled?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Here is a great article that was featured on Bankrate.com and Foxbusiness.com that provides guidance to consumers that may have a total loss vehicle.

Great advice…but what if your vehicle is not a total loss? How do you know if your vehicle qualifies for a total loss? Most of the time the consumer has no say in this matter and your insurance adjuster makes decisions behind the scenes and sends you an email or calls you later to avoid confrontation. Many states have a total loss threshold or a formula the insurance company uses to decision a vehicle for total loss payout. You can find a guide to your state's total loss methodology here.

If you are being told by your insurance company that your wrecked vehicle is not a total loss and you don't want it back - you can sell it as-is and keep your repair check. Most people think a wrecked vehicle is junk – THIS IS NOT THE CASE. In fact, your damaged vehicle is probably worth hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars just for what's left of it–significantly more if it can be rebuilt and sold again.

If you want to sell your wrecked vehicle, DamageMAX.com is the place to come and find out how it can be done. DamageMAX.com is the leading buyer of damaged, wrecked and crashed vehicles of all types. We buy anything from a Rollover to a Range Rover and have purchased vehicles from $65 - $65,000.

If you read the article we shared from FoxBusiness.com they emphasized the need for an educated decision. You really can't make one without knowing what your wreck is worth "as-is", so call DamageMAX.com for a value on your wrecked vehicle.
