Pardon my rant...
I was in a car accident back in August and totaled my car. I didn't see the light change and was hit in the intersection by someone going about 45 mph. I was probably doing 30. He hit me on the driver's side just in front of the door shoving the tire into the engine compartment, cracking the windshield and crushing the front end inwards. He was fine, I had a concussion and missed a week of work. Thankfully, my daughter wasn't hurt beside a few minor bruises.

So, in the process of separating a few years ago, apparently my ex took the comprehensive/collision off the car. Because it was my fault, not only was the car totaled but I didn't get a penny for it.

It's now January and I still don't have a vehicle. I have come close but before the final preparations are made, something happens and it falls through.
Sigh, I am getting very discouraged that this is ever going to be resolved.
Sorry for the rant... just had to vent...

Uhm .. I think that's illegal! At least here in Wisconsin it is. Not only was your ex-husband extremely rotten .. but your insurance agent majorly fell down on the job as well, considering that they didn't contact you regarding your auto insurance. I would consider contacting your state's Insurance Commisioner regarding this issue, if I were you!!


Last I knew, agents get commision on premiums, not on uninsured cars ...

I hadn't thought about that... I'll have to look into it. Thanks for the suggestion!
