Sure enough Economical responded to Mr. Moak not wanting to go to court; but sadly didn’t really up the bar by much. They added a few hundred dollars to their offer after writing off my car which is in fact repairable.
After our last story I was asked in comments about the other cars and here are the pictures. The VW Golf (Car “A”) below is the car I hit and then was smashed into again by Car “C”.
As you can see, in spite of being hit by me and then having my car bounced into it the damage is not as brutal as that sustained by my own car at the top of the page.
Car “C”, this Toyota seems barely scratched. No air bags deployed in any of the vehicles.
Economical still hasn’t given me a rental as they insist on only covering 50% of the cost as well as only 50% of the insurance. They are only agreeing to cover 50% of the storage on my car as well as we wait for this process to evolve.
My emails to Ms Karen Gavan, CEO of Economical have also still be unanswered.
At this point it looks like we’re off to court. We will keep updating this story as it plays out. And again, a case like this really highlights why we need auto insurance reform in Ontario.
