Geico Complaint - North Carolina - Contributory Negligence Law
ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- In North Carolina they have a Contributory Negligence Law that allows Insurance company to hide behind and not pay claims. My son was killed riding his motorcycle in Asheville NC, April 22,2008. A car pulled out in front of him for a side road. This person said when he notice the motorcycle, he attempted to back up but put it in park.
My son try to miss him but lost control. This person then put he's vehicle in Reverse and backed up. GEICO INSURANCE said based on the statement from their client and the report, my son was at fault. Thats right GEICO sent me a letter stating that my son contributed to his death. This person was not charged with anything or even got a ticket.
My son lost his life, for the decision he had no control over. This person made that decision and walked away with NO justice served.
