My ten-year-old was hit by a car while riding a bicycle in front of our home in a residential area where the speed limit is 5 mph. The driver had her husband clean up the broken glass and move the car prior to the officer’s arrival according to our neighbors.
When the officer asked for the drivers’ license and registration, the driver was unable to locate them because she could not find her glasses and could not see well enough to recognize the documents in her glove box.
Her 2006 car is equipped with anti-lock brakes and skidded over four feet.
Nationwide Insurance has informed me that they will not pay my child’s medical expenses and they expect me to file on my homeowner’s policy to pay for damaged to the car.
Nationwide Insurance said that a ten-year-old should not be riding a bike in the road and the accident was her fault.
Our neighborhood is one where you often have to stop to let a big wheel cross or let a group of boy’s finish a play in their football game.
People who choose to insure with Nationwide should be required to be on a national registry that warns neighbors of their poor decision.
I spoke with this mom for permission to use her story in February 2008 and she told me Nationwide has now sued her daughter for the damages to their customers car. Can you imagine suing a 10 year old child? It is my understanding the police report has not attached any liability to the child or her family. The child is fine.
Paybilly Notation: My goal is to remove Nationwide and all their agencies from the State of Connecticut (and someday beyond) by uniting the common purpose of the people they have abused. This mother's letter is to the point of the arrogant abuse of Nationwide and the same as I experienced from the claims adjuster lying to Dr. Yue just before my operation. They lie. They are deceitful. And their indifference to others is unconscionable. How can so many people feel the same way about Nationwide Insurance?
"People who choose to insure with Nationwide should be required to be on a national registry that warns neighbors of their poor decision."
I could hardly believe she wrote this. Can you imagine?
