Ask Me About:
This can create some anxiety but I want to tell you that you can still get coverage. Depending on your home’s location you might even have some options. So if you are facing non-renewal or the home you have fallen in love with and would like to buy sits in one of the high Fire Line areas, give me a call at (805) 985-5488 and we can discuss your options.
But if you drive paid for cars like me, and don’t carry Collision coverage, what should you do when someone runs into you? Smart phones have made this part much easier.
Get photos of the other car and be sure to get one with the vehicle’s license plate in it.
Take a picture of the other party’s driver’s license.
Take a picture of their registration.
Take a picture of their insurance card.
Get their phone number.
Of course the other party may want this information from you as well.
It can still take several weeks for their insurance adjuster to make a decision if they cannot reach their client to get a statement of what happened. But having these items will help, especially if the other party is uncooperative.
An additional item to get if possible is a police report. This is actually the best item you can get, but because police departments are stretched thin these days, they will not always send an officer out if there are no injuries or traffic being blocked.
The best thing to do though, is to stay out of the way of the knuckleheads although this gets more difficult everyday as they seem to be breeding very fast.

I lost my kid brother a few months ago. He was 57 years old. His life was running along great; perfect family; been a Ventura County Fireman for 20+ years; looking forward to retirement. A few years back during a routine physical he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Last month it got the best of him and it has been tough for his wife, kids, grandkids, and his extended family as we have all been close.
It is difficult to see any bright spots in these circumstances but something I am thankful for is that my brother bought life insurance 20+ years ago. He thought ahead and made sure that in the event the unthinkable happened, those he loved and cared for did not have to scramble around to figure out what to do. The family home is still in the family. The bills still get paid.
So please take some time to look at how you have prepared for your family in the event of your death. If you think you may have some holes in your plan or you have no plan at all, please give me a call, 805-985-5488 and we can help you figure out what works best for you and your circumstances. Of all the claims I get involved in, none give me greater satisfaction than giving the family who has lost someone they love, the life insurance proceeds to help them financially carry on with their lives.

The first was a friend of mine who has always thought he should insure his autos and home with me, but I was always a little more expensive. My friend was like most of us in that he bought insurance, but never read the policy to see what he was buying. What he had though came to light when he had a sewer line problem, a $10,000 repair bill, and no coverage. Right then he decided that I was worth the little extra money.
The second was an acquaintance who had liability and uninsured motorist coverage they had purchased on line. They were hit one day by another motorist and their car was undriveable. Unfortunately, the other driver took their time in reporting the accident to their carrier. My acquaintance called their own insurance carrier, but because they did not have collision coverage, they were told there was nothing they could do to help. They had to wait for the other party to report the accident and for that company to do an investigation. In this type of situation, the days add up quickly and having an agent can shorten this period as they can make the phone calls required to get things rolling.
Now might be a good time to see if you can lay your hands on a copy of your policy to review what it is you are paying for. I know that the language of insurance can sometimes seem foreign, so if you need someone to interpret for you, give me a call. (805)985-5488. Jim
