6:45 pm
more than $6,000. but when he filed a claim with caltrans, dennis says he got no response. that's when dennis turned to us. we asked caltrans what happened. a spokesperson didn't give us an answer. he later got a check for $2,264.31. that is a lot less than $6,000 that we saw on the repair estimate. but dennis accepted it and says he is ready to move on. why the low amount? depreciation. insurance payouts are typically based on your car's current value. even though dennis took great care of his truck, it was still 22 years old. that's an important point to consider with your own car insurance. if you are not sure about your coverage level, ask your agent to talk you through brick wall with consur in the right direction. visit nbc bay area.com/response or call us at 888-996-tips.
