My son had an accident with my car. As part of my insurance policy I can get a rental car for up to $40 per day to a total of $1800. Three days after the accident the insurance adjuster deemed the car totaled. He called me on the phone and stated what the value of the settlement would be and that he was faxing me paperwork. Part of the paperwork is a power-of-attorney which has to be signed in front of a notary and stamped. The adjuster also stated that since he was telling me the dollar value of the settlement I must return the rental car. I don't understand. I have not received or signed anything. The adjuster stated that the company is no longer liable to pay for my rental car because he told me the value of the settlement.
There are many types of personal injuries for which financial damages can be awarded, including physical, emotional, and psychological injuries.
