I was hit from behind in Maryland 23 months ago. My new car was totaled. I was not Injured At all. I never responded to their (my also) insurance company's offer of 800.00; I am a caretaker, and had many dramas in my life at the time. Now the 2 year statute of limitations is approaching. How do I accept the paltry offer, or ask for a little more, quickly?Oops, I forgot to mention, my insurance company, Ge*** adequately reimbursed me for my vehicle. It was done quickly in April 2012 (date of accident April 1, 2012, State of Maryland). They offered me $800.00 that same month to "settle and close the case" , I said I would get back to them. Glad to know the statute of limitations for Maryland is 3 years(the insurance rep told me I have 2 years)! I would like to receive more than the 800.00 the rep offered me. Again , I was not injured; However, it was quite a hardship, and very, very stressful. First , does Gei** HAVE to give me anything at all anyway? Second, what kind of action can I take to request a more than that, and close this case. thank you so much, Elaine
