American Family Mutual Insurance Co. Complaint - Blatantly Unfair
MADISON, WISCONSIN -- I was in an auto accident where the other party was speeding past a red light at an intersection, and hit my car as I started to drive forward on a green light. The other driver was ticketed. She ran a red light and also left the scene of the accident. I did nothing wrong. I simply moved forward when the light turned green. An eyewitness behind me corroborated my story.
It turns out that the other driver's insurance company, American Family Mutual, decided to pay only 90% of the cost to repair the damage to my car. The cost was less than my deductible, so I had to pay. They claim that the eyewitness saw the car coming, but I did not. Therefore, according to American Family, I'm also negligent. My response: I could not see to my left because of intense sun glare. I had to move forward because the light turned green. How ridiculous!!
I did nothing wrong, while the other driver was speeding, ran a red light and left the scene of the accident. Yet, according to American Family I'm negligent??? Why should have to pay? American Family Mutual has made a blatantly unfair and unjustified decision!!
