I’ve been curious about the accident my mother was in the day after she got her license back. In talking with mom’s insurance agent about a possible umbrella policy, I was able to find out what happened:
Mom wrote a long detailed letter to the adjuster. The adjuster decided to pay the claim BECAUSE there was a witness to the accident, mom admitted hitting the other vehicle AND the “damage photos align exactly where insd and clmnt said the point of impact was.” Mom is now upset the claim was paid!
One of the hardest parts of what my mom has (the sort of dementia, the disease) is, what looks like on the surface, her complete lack of logic for anything that doesn’t go her way or anything she doesn’t like. It diminishes her affect either to that of a conniving, tale spinning middle school girl or a toddler.
