Claims

by Denise
(Canada)

My car was boosted, and a fire occurred under the hood. I put the hood down, and left the car in the parking lot.

Next day I had it towed to my home. I had a mechanic look at it, and he told me a bypass wire was on the v6, and that everything was shorted out. My ECU was affected, including the wiring harness, and more. My car would not start.
I had everything replaced-and called my insurance to make a claim. They are now saying because I had it repaired, they can not pay me back the $$ I spent. I sent them bills, and pics of the remote starter that was all burnt. I have never made such a claim in my life of driving-32 years. I am a ten star rated for insurance. I don;t understand how they can do this. I have had the same insurance for years now. What can I do?

Claim Problem


Hi Denise,
Claims are supposed to be reported before repairs are done so the insurer has the opportunity to assess the situation and gather proof of the loss. That said, you should complain to your insurer and ask to speak with a claims manager about your situation. Be sure to point out how long you have been with the company claims free.
