Accident update

Dave’s accident claim has been moving slow as molasses!!  I finally got to talk to our agent and she explained why.  Turns out the three people in the car each had injuries of their own.  I was told two broken noses and one had an intestinal laceration that required surgery.  However, they are all home and doing well now.  Our insurance company is waiting for the driver to call back with her statement.  Because the light was yellow for both parties it makes the claim more complicated.  Also Alabama has a contributory negligence law that states if both parties are found to contribute even 1% to the accident, both parties take care of their own.  Our insurance company is going to fight for the contributory negligence so we potentially won’t have to pay out for their injuries or car.  Hopefully we will hear sometime next week as to the final decision by our insurance company.
