You call THIS Progress(ive)?
My cousin Kay (we call her the Mother Theresa of our family because she gives until she bleeds) had just gotten her new car when a kid (cop's son, go figure) trying to run a yellow light, hit her at speeds way above the limit. The car was twice totaled (front end damage and rear end damage) because he was going so fast it pushed her into the truck in front of her. Her injuries are bad, she can't work and Progressive is jerking her around in every way possible.
Through NO FAULT of her own, she is now homeless (they won't pay for lost wages because she had a contract to provide services), the exact same car as she had is now $2,000 more because we got a good deal on the first one and there are no good deals now with the Libya fiasco going on, and they wouldn't pay the difference despite the car only being weeks old, and has a whole host of medical issues including badly broken ribs, shattered teeth, and a very bad back injury they are trying to say was only aggravated by the accident because she had back surgery before. So tell me this...she was able to lift and care for a 10 year old boy who has CP and can't walk at all, but the accident only aggravated the injury? C'mon people...
Moral of the story, DON'T BUY PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE and if you are ever in a wreck that wasn't your fault in any way, pray to God that the other person doesn't have Progressive Insurance.
Flo, you should be ashamed!
