Yeah, so far they've indicated that they are covering lost wages, ambulance ride, and medical expenses. So from that perspective I am totally satisfied. They did send me a check for the repairs for the car indicating that if I cash the check I accept the settlement, blah, blah, blah. Um yeah, that's gonna sit for a while. I'll pay the dealer cash to get my car back but that check isn't gonna get cashed until I am totally satisfied. Its not like the car is 1 of 1 ever produced or anything but to me it was my lil hot rod. And we all know once a car has been in an accident it will never be the same.
The idea put out there by State Farm, my insurance company BTW, that a vehicle which is properly repaired won't diminish in value is complete bullshit and a prime example of the lobbying power of the insurance industry (to influence outcomes of trials). I'm not sure how I'm going to proceed yet. It seems as if a pretty strong legal precedent has been set but at least in IL it has only been ruled on by an appellate court. I will have our corporate attorneys take a peak at it and see if they think I have a snowballs chance in hell. Otherwise I may have my State Farm agent come with me to the dealership when I go to sell the car so he can tell the dealership it was repaired properly and, therefore, should be worth top dollar for trade in. We'll see how far that goes. Fuckers...
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
