Lawyers, Litigation, and Car Insurance

It seems there are three things assured in this life, death, taxes, and rising car insurance premiums. And now I have found out why.

A week ago my wife was invovled in a little fender bender. She stopped for a pedestrian in the crosswalk, as did the car behind her, but the car two behind her kept on coming, causing a mini pile up. When all was said and done, there was no damage to my wife's car, and after submitting her information to the authorities she left the scene. Life happens.

Fast forward to yesterday. She got not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, but SEVEN unsolicited letters in the mail from different attorneys explaining how insurance companies are out to get her, injuries may not appear for months OR YEARS, and how she needs to act RIGHT NOW to preserve her rights and claim the money she has coming. One firm was going to cover her taxi fare to and from her initial free consultation.

Of course the net impact of this is more lawsuits, merited or not, and while some may claim this keeps the insurance companies honest, my guess is the added expense shows up on my annual bill.

UPDATE: 3 more solicitations in today's mail, lots of chiropractors getting in on the action. The total is now 10 and counting.

UPDATE: 2 more lawyer solicitations, 3 more chiropractor solicitations, total is now up to 15 and counting.
