Hello.

In response to your reply e-mail I am giving more details about my situation.  I took out an insurance policy with Progressive
insurance on July 24th 2012 after being uninsured for a while.  I also added uninsured motorist to my policy.  I purchased the
automobile insurance through an agent, Holden xxxxxx from Alliance Insurance in Morristown, Tn.     The next day, my spouse Mikitia xxxxxxx and I were coming home .  We were behind a car on the road we live on.  Suddenly the car in front of us stopped abruptly and I stopped also.  It appeared as if he past his turn off point.  He then put his car in reverse and then backed into and slammed the front of my 1991 Subaru Legacy and he took off and left the scene and drove up xxxxxxxxx Lane.  I then called 911 in Grainger County Tn.  

After waiting on the Sheriff's Deputy's to arrive about 7 minutes, The car that hit me returned back to the scene but a woman was driving the car this time.  After about another 10 minute wait the Deputy's arrived and apparently wrote the woman 3 citations for violation of reg, no insurance, and leaving the scene of an accident.  The officer told me that the male in the car did not have a licence to drive a car.  I would have never  imagined someone would hit me the day after I took out insurance but it happened.  I called Progressive and notified them about the accident before we went to the emergency room at xxxxxxx Hospital to be checked.  I had a dorsal spine injury and Mikitia had a sprained neck.  

After a few days went by I decided to retain an attorney,  xxxxxxxxxxx but They have stopped pursuing the case because they said Progressive wanted to investigate me.  We gave them recorded statements and we faxed to Farmer a hand writen
statement from Mikitia, and Progressive has the police report on hand.  I have complied with all of Progressive's requirements for a valid claim.  This has been going on now for about two months and now Progressive wants Mikitia and I to drive to Knoxville so they can take statements, cell phone records, medical records, and they want me to sign a form to come and get my 91 Subaru and take it off somewhere.  I told them that they could come to my house and ask us questions but they don't want to.  After getting hit, my transmission stopped working on the 91 Subaru.  I had to buy a used car.  Progressive's appraiser came to where my car was sitting at my brother James xxxxxx garage, on the 23rd of August 2012 and deemed my 91 Subaru a total loss and came up with a figure of $2364.00 for damages to my 91 Subaru.  I am very angry about all this and is consuming most of my time and considering a class action suit. Still waiting ........

Yes something is missing

AUTHOR: John - (United States of America)

Yes, something is missing.  The check for damages to my 91 Subaru and payment from progressive for our hospital bills.  As far as farmer is concerned, it is a law group that told me they've never heard of any thing like this from an insurance company before.  To keep things simple,  I was insured with liability and uninsured motorist.  

I was hit. Progressive as not paid on my claim.  Progressive has until Oct. 11th 2012 at 12:01 pm to settle on this claim.  If they do not,  I will be filing a $20,000,000 USD class action law suit against them (progressive) in Knoxville, Tennessee.  If progressive wants to act like school children, I will treat them as such, in court if need be.

Something is missing...

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Not quite sure what is missing, but there seems to be things missing from your story.

It's not like you have a Hit and Run where you don't have the other party.  The car left, and according to the officer they switched drivers before they returned.   If they just thought you were at fault, they would just deny your claim.  To be under suspicion of fraud means that there is something more here.

Why did you get an attorney after only a couple of days?  Unless Progressive had already given you an indication that there was going to be trouble that is a bit of an overkill.  You then have the attorney who no longer wants to represent you because of the inquiry from Progressive.  This is what attorneys do..they represent their clients.  So either you have a bum for an attorney or they see something more in this case that you are not stating.

You also said that you gave a statement to Farmer.  Is that Farmer's Insurance?  If so how did they become involved?  Is that the other parties insurance?  If it is you(and your attorney) should be going after them.

How much is your claim for?   And why don't you go after the party that hit you directly?
