I live in NC where I was rear-ended, which resulted in the other drivers ins. co. deeming my car a total loss. They use the company ***** to determine what my car is "worth" and I disagree with their figure. (**** says $2000) The comparable cars in my area are about $1000.00 more than that. I provided the ins. co. with the asking price of 4 cars I found to use to compare to mine and I explained that I would like to be compensated with the amount of money that it takes to replace my car. The ins. co. said this is what **** says your car is worth and that's "just the way it goes". I also just got my county tax records for the car and they appraise it at $2750.00. I will send that document in to the ins. co. as more "fuel" to show them that they are low-balling my car. Do you have any recommendations on how to go about getting them to accept my proposed value instead of them just saying "This is what ***** says it's worth, so that is what we will give you."?
