I was in a minor accident last Thursday, where someone forced me into the curb. The vehicles didn't collide, but her insurance is covering the claim anyway. California has a law on insurance companies replacing seats after a crash, so it only took a little convincing to get them to cover that (they tried to argue that it was too minor of an accident to warrant replacing the seat). Anyway, DS was in a Triumph Advance DLX RF'ing during the accident. He has almost outgrown it RF'ing. Is it wrong of me to get a different seat? One that will fit him longer? Or do I need to purchase the seat, be reimbursed, and then return it so that I only get the discount of the seat that I had in the accident? Just looking for some advice. I haven't decided what seat to get yet, but it will definitely be a different one. Thank-you for your help.
You should get reimbursed for the cost of the seat in the form of a check. What you do with that check is totally up to you. The insurance company is not going to chase you down to make sure you bought the exact same model to replace your EFTA.
I was told it just had to be something of comparable value..not that I think they know what that would be. You could also buy the exact same seat, fax them the receipt, then take it back and use the money towards something else.
Did you know that 95% of children are not properly restrained in a vehicle?
Make sure your child is not one of them!
