A Car owned that insured his car said

I had an accident where my car hit another car. Though the damage was not bad but the owner insisted that I should repair his car. I called my internal revenue agent only to be surprised that the woman doesn’t know much about Insurance Company. I ended repairing both my car and the other person car. Where is My Insurance company?

Anomalous says:

Good morning, I was driving along warri / Benin express road when my vehicle fell, scraped the tarred ground into Bush ,due to potholes in the road; Yet the insurance company is telling me that, they are not aware of my insurance paper since I didn’t come to their office myself to process what was processed at the motor license office of the state. A third party insurance policy.

They are claiming it’s from agents or touts and this set of people can’t operate without them giving them the nod from Delta State Motor License Office. Although, their claims now is that, they’re not being settled properly by those at the license office. In fact, I don’t know how this concerns me their customer and complainant.

This is one of the reason people hate anything to do with insurance companies. They don’t seem to be straight in their dealings.

Another person complained

I need them to act accordingly. But I’m yet to be attended to. This accident took place in a Month back.

So what do you advice me, to do next?

Another car owner complained that

Insurance these days are becoming more dynamics than ever. I was told by an insurance company which I won’t disclose it’s name that there are car premiums that last for just a day.

My question remains, the money we pay insurance companies how does it end up? Is it internal revenue that collects the money or Insurance companies?
