How do I add someone to my car insurance policy?
My relative recently had a fender bender in my vehicle, but he wasn't covered. He really needs my vehicle to get to work, so banning him from my vehicle isn't really an option. How do I add someone to my car insurance policy?
“Before you add someone to your car insurance policy, ask yourself if it’s truly the right move for you. They’ve already had an accident while uninsured, leaving you responsible for damages.
If you decide that you really want to add them to your policy, make sure to check car insurance quotes online. This will give you some insight into the added cost, as well as whether your relative has any high-risk factors (DUI, speeding ticket, etc.).
If adding them is cost-feasible, you’ll need to contact your current insurance agency and supply them with the information of the second driver, including the name, date of birth, gender, and tickets/accidents within the past five to seven years. “

Why am I only being offered a $10 payout for damage due to a pipe leak?
"A pipe connected to a hose in my backyard was broken and leaking water. When I called a repairman, he made a hole in my house to access the pipe. There was also some water damage to my ceiling. When someone from the insurance company came over to check out all the damage, they only offered to pay me $10. Why am I being offered so little? "
