My car was sandwiched in a car accident, and the only party at fault was the rear one. Their insurance company did not notify me when they salvaged my car nor give me options to choose from retaining the car or giving it up to them to get compensated for the market price of my car at the time. Are they required by law to notify me or have me signed something to agree to whatever further actions they are going to do esp. when it comes to salvaging my car? What happened is that they only paid me the estimated amount and leaving me a salvage title which I only found out six months later when I go register my car again. Now I want to go after them and get compensated fairly. Please help! Thanks a lot!!I don't recall signing any release statement nor were I informed I had any other options. They just sent a payment equal to the estimate to my address. Now that I am stuck with a salvage title I lost about a couple thousands dollars of value to my car. Did they break the law? -------------------------------------------- The insurance co has never notified me as the owner that my vehicle has been a total loss before issuing payment for the repairs. In fact, they have never given me written notice of anything. According to Vehicle Code 11515 (http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d05/vc11515.htm), did they break the law?
