Insurance Question from Bakersfield, CA

Asked on 09/13/2011

A person with a truk drove straight into our garage I am trying to figure out what all 64 cassette tapes broken, how do i estimate them? I do not think they sale them anymore much Thank You

The auto policy of the truck driver will pay to repair or replace items damaged in an accident. While the cassettes are no longer available for purchase, you may try to work with the insurance company or adjuster to see if they will allow you to replace the items with a more current music application, such as CDs. The costs may be similar enough that they would agree to this.Another option may be to find the cost to download the music on your ipod or computer. If the costs are equivalent to the cost of the cassettes, that may be an option agreed to.If neither of these options are available or agreed to, then you will need to determine the cost of the cassettes to you originally and seek a monetary reimbursement. You can probably find cassettes for sale on Ebay or the like, that will give a value to the adjuster.
