My husband, a retired, 47 year old, twenty-year law enforcement officer, who has never had an accident in his entire life, had two fender-benders in two weeks this year. Yes, that may sound unusual, but here are the circumstances:
Accident one: In a vacant McDonald's parking lot, we sat eating our burgers. My husband has a Chevrolet Silverado, long-bed and had just installed a tool box. When finished our meal and were going to leave. We did not know and could not see, that a small, compact car had parked right behind us to make a cell phone call. My husband backed into him.
Accident two: There was a snow storm and my husband backed out of our drive way, and the truck got stuck in the snow, one house down. A neighbor came out to help. At first Bob refused the help, but the neighbor insisted. The neighbor used his truck to push my husband out of a small ditch. My husband's truck slipped backward and put a orange-sized dent on the neighbor's front fender.
Yesterday, I called our State Farm Agent, Narveet Kang, of Carbondale Illinois, (618) 549-1755, because I was going to see about increasing our coverage. It was at that time that Mr. Kang, informed me that our auto policies would not be renewed because we had two accidents in two weeks, for a total of $1900. He also told us that State Farm would forgive one accident in nine years, but not two.
We did not know that two minor accidents would result in our policies not being renewed. Had we known, we would have paid the neighbor $800.00 to fix his truck. State Farm did not inform us that an additional accident, within nine years, would result in cancellation of our policies. I have been with State Farm Insurance since I began to drive 36 years ago. My husband and I have never filed an accident claim. I WROTE THIS COMPLAINT SO THAT OTHERS WOULD BE FORWARNED AND NOT HAVE THIS HAPPEN TO THEM.
