Insurance Question from Chatt Hills, GA

Asked on 08/15/2010

CANCELLING INSURANCE BEFORE PAYING FOR ACCIDENT CLAIMS. THE GEORGIA STATE INSURANCE COMMISSIONERS OFFICE IS HANDLING THIS COMPLAINT. My son had 2 accidents on the same date, May 20, 2010, one in the am going to his appointment ( failure to yield right of way) and one in the pm coming from his appointment ( following too closely) He got a claim number from his insurance carrier, at least for the first accident. He thinking everything was ok, received a letter in the mail dated June 10, 2010 saying they had cancelled his premium as of January 22, 2010. The reason being that he did not sign a form stating who was 15 or older in the household. His birthday is May 31st and he was able to get his new tag.
