The Hartford Group Complaint - Hartford Cheats

Review by Realtor1080 on 2010-11-01
A very small shopping center in the North Side of Chciago was remodeling. They put scaffolding in a way as to cut off 3 ft. of the top of an internal upside down U-Turn that was 180 degrees to begin with. They had a big blue disposal bin and wooden crates blocking the view of a concrete tire bumper that should have been removed to allow enough room in the Upside down U, so a car could go through. Instead as I slowly came through, my tire had to go over the bumper and it pulled off my rocker panel and damaged my undercarriage. There was no way I could have seen the bumper.
I filed a claim for all of $512, a real estimate of repairs, and this nitwit woman claim's adjuster said I was to blame. She was smiling when she said it and I have no doubt there were dollar signs in her eyes for the bonus she expects
or the percentage of the claim she turned down. Well, the $512 will now by The Hartford my several thousand people mailing list and every complaint site I can find to tell people what a bunch of crooks they are.
Forget all those "touchy/feely" TV commercials they run. I have never had
such a bad experience with an insurance company as this and I would never
advise anyone to use them. Try American Family for one.

What the heck is an internal upside down u-turn?

It is the drivers responsibility not to run into unmoveable objects. Just because you think there should be room for a car to pass doesn't make it so. The Hartford claims adjuster was one hundred percent correct.

why did you proceed?

wereluck, you didn't read carefully or I didn't make myself clean. This was a regular lane for turning into the next parking aisle of the small parking lot. Secondly, the unmoveable object (which by the way, was moved the next day after I put in the claim) could not be seen because it was hidden by the dumpster. It blocked the regular lane that was now no longer large enough to turn through because the scaffolding took away the top of the U. So unless you have exray eyes, you wouldn't have been able to see it either. There was no long enough room to make the regular turn and they did not put up a sign nor block it off (which they couldn't do because one could not back out of the lot because they would have illegally backed into oncoming 4 lane traffic. Get it? Spiderman, make a box, put an upside down U in the middle and make it a few inches wide
and that was the driving lane...it's hard to explain but being a spiderman, I'm sure you'll get it. Wereluck..I'll bet you're a claims adjuster...you made a decision without carefully looking at the facts, so I have give you a few more hints. jktshiff1, I think you can see I couldn't have backed out of the lot, nor would I because I couldn't see because it was blocked by the dumpster, that the regular lane had a block that prohibited regular customers from using it and that my friends is negligence.
