That's the thing with these shysters. They are great until there is a claim. Thanks for the good info.

My new agent came to the house earlier to inspect vehicles and have me sign paperwork. Locked in for a year at $1330 which is the best quote we got in South Florida. We've both taken the mature drivers class through AARP and have clean driving records. Drive econo cars so we're both very happy with our Metlife policy. The old one runs out on the 14th and this one starts on the 13th. The agent is very nice and helpful and will see if he can get us a good rate on our homeowners insurance...he thinks he can...yay!

Oh yeah, went up to $4 last year for passenger cars.
No extra charge if you want someone to drive you and your car across.
Now THAT is a job I could handle - driving cars across the Mackinac Bridge!

I don't know about that...when I drove across the Delaware Memorial Bridge, it seemed like it was WAY above the river when you look to either side, and it just gives me the creeps...those extra long bridges just might paralyze me...

We must never confuse stupidity with evil. You give Washington DC far too much credit.

If a person thinks the insurance industry controls - they don't know the duties of fifty different state insurance commissioners and the clout they have.
LOL that! Speaking from experience, I know the CA insurance commissioner is just a puppet of the insurance industry. I put in a few "department of insurance" complaints against Bristol West/Coast National Insurance years ago complete with full documentation and everything they asked for I provided and responded to promptly. They have zero teeth, zero clout, and zero power.
From what I could tell, they solely exist to promote the insurance lobbies propaganda and get laws changed/fixed to their benefit.

The CA insurance commissioner's office contacted Bristol about your complaint and after hearing their side of the situation came to the conclusion that Bristol didn't do any wrong or violate any regulation.
Your emotional and subjective documentation was dealt with accordingly. Next time hire an attorney to represent you.

The only side that was emotional and subject was the insurance side... sorry to burst your bubble. I just hit them with hard, cold facts.
Actually, they admitted an "examiner" error, but it was pretty much, "Oh well!" Our bad.. too bad for you!" Nothing we can do about our mistake that cost you lots of money!!!
So yes, I got them to admit a mistake was made, but I guess the $$$ amount involved wasn't enough for me to hire a lawyer, and they probably bet on that, rather than acting in good faith and paying for their mistake.
