So yeah here it is 5 1/2 months later after my accident and good to go car insurance offered me $800 as the totaled value of my bike
This would be okay and acceptable if you just pulled it out of the barn but as a hobbyist you spend all sorts of money on your bike and then there's the hours you put into it
Because I refused to take $800 they countered by saying they'll just bring it back and we're even.
I don't think I was compensated at all in fact I think that they were totally incompetent and the fact that I did not see the bike and they took it for an appraisal and kept it for 3 months and then they told me if it's not agreeable I would have to pay all the storage fees and Towing.
So I even have a lawyer but seriously he doesn't care about the moped and the fact of the matter is it doesn't seem like there's a recourse for me to get compensated for my vehicle.
The kit that was on the bike what's worth 200 the controls on the bars we're worth another Buck 50 the freaking mags conservatively 200 the exhaust pipe conservatively a buck-fifty the stator was a newer CDI with the flywheel so that's like 200 then you're adding a brand new main shaft new crank new clutch including bearings hub and shoes break strips and Bell just start ringing all this stuff up.
I'm going to talk to my lawyer in about 5 minutes and I'm going to basically tell them that it is unacceptable and that I should get my own appraisals like three of them and hold the insurance company accountable for my expense to bring it to the appraisals and for holding it for 5 months I wanted to report it stolen after 3 weeks I even tried to get it out of the impound within 12 hours but I had to be there in person and I was in the hospital the impound ER refuse to release the vehicle but when the insurance adjuster showed up a month-and-a-half later there was no problem releasing it with just a fax. I call Shenanigans
I was thinking of carding the damn carcass up to Steve's moped world second stroke and that place in Philly and get a real appraisal on how much it was worth and the damages incurred.
They totaled it over a headlight bezel a seat and the front fender at least that's what the appraisal said they listed the parts and labor as $1,057.
So as a result I've been out of Transportation for 5 months. This whole thing could have been resolved if the insurance company acted promptly and did their job for Christ sakes if they had brought it to my house to get the paperwork I could have done the appraisal and said give me three hundred bucks and they would have left it here and it would have been all set and done but instead they're just totally incompetent and I don't think I should have to deal with their incompetence and take the loss.
Feelings on the matter discuss?
