#1 Insurance company and body shop agree to repair price. Additional work needs to be done after repair begins (called a supplemental). Body shop contacts insurance company adjuster. Adjuster agrees that additional work needs to be done. Body shop completes work and contacts insurance adjuster for check for all the work performed. Adjuster, after agreeing to repairs, now decides NOT to pay for supplemental. Current status:
1. Car still in shop, repaired, but will not be released until payment is made.
2. Insurance company not paying for car.
3. Insurance company now cuts off rental.
4. Client has no car, no rental, and a bill for damages insurance company already agreed were necessary.
5. Client, who had no intention of calling a lawyer, now calls Lewis & Tompkins, P.C., D.C.’s car accident legal specialists, to fix this situation. Who needs to advertise when you have insurance adjusters making work for you?
