Additional Notes

Complaint Category: None of the Above - Repair Complaint Issue

Complaint: The vehicle was claimed a total loss. Today is 08/26/2013, and the matter is not resolved. That is more than 2 months. The companies involved are not honoring the value that was listed on the policy prior to the accident, and post accident. I'm still paying insurance on a vehicle that has been deemed a total loss. Also, the matter needs to be resolved. I have talked to 4 individuals at the companies (including supervisors).to no resolve or agreement. The has been many stalls (papers sent to wrong addresses, inconsistencies, and incompetency in processing the claim). Also, the person assigned to the case in the total loss ****************** ********* hung up on my husband (who is also insured and part owner of the vehicle. Very unprofessional. The prices that we paid on the vehicle insurance was based on the worth of the vehicle. That is not what the companies are saying at this time. I have all of the papers and envelopes that I received. I was sent two papers on the same day with completely different figures. In two days it is time for me to pay insurance again. If I do not Pay it ,then the company will not continue and resolve my claim. Please help resolve this matter.

Initial Business Response
Contact Email: ****
The accident that left her vehicle a total loss happened on or about 6/19/2013. The date of loss was covered on her previous policy term that expired and was renewed on 7/28/2013. Eagle Insurance Agency is not handling the claim, the claim is being handled by the insurance company which is *** ********* Auto Company. Mrs. ******* ******* has called Eagle on numerous occassions with questions about the claim and has been told to contact the insurance company handling the claim and speak to the adjustor about her concerns and or questions. The phone number is(XXX) XXX-XXXX. Regarding her mention of mail being sent to a wrong address, Mrs. ******* ******* informed us of her new address on 7/26/2013 upon her renewal, any mail sent to her prior to her notifying us of her new address would have been sent to the address on file for the previous policy. As for her paying her premiums on her current policy, it has absolutely no bearing on the handling of her claim which was reported under the previous policy term. Her paying on her existing active policy term has nothing to do with the processing and or resolving of her claim. Mrs. ******* is free to continue paying her premiums or discontinue her current policy by submitting a written signed request at any time, either option will not affect the handling of her claim by **** Mrs. ******* must communicate with the insurance company handling her claim in order to reach a resolution.

Complaint Resolution: Company addressed the complaint issues. The consumer failed to acknowledge acceptance to BBB.
