Total Loss Settlements Involving Insurance Companies – Florida and the Department of Motor Vehicles

Beat your lying & cheating insurance company to get thousands more $$$ you deserve and paid for with your hard earned premiums for years. Get what you deserve from your accident & personal injury claim.


My insurer USAA recently sent me a pdf link from the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles, several pages mentioning regulations insurers are to adhere to before acquiring an insured motorist’s title after a total loss colission (mine compliments of a drunk driver that nearly killed me).


It is rather interesting that the DMV requires insurers to provide the insured motorist a replacement vehicle of like kind and quality, but insurers like to lower the bar and offer merely “actual cash value” to their insured. Sounds a bit fishy to me!


I told USAA:


“…Thank you for providing me the pdf link online concerning FL Statutes regarding / “TOTAL LOSS SETTLEMENTS INVOLVING INSURANCE COMPANIES” / wherein the first provision of State Law mentioned is Section 319.30 (3) (a) 1 providing that / “a motor vehicle is a total loss when an insurance company pays the motor vehicle owner to replace the wrecked or damaged motor vehicle with one of like kind and quality” /.


Since USAA has failed thus far to pay me the motor vehicle owner to replace my vehicle with one of like kind and quality, USAA preferring only to render an  “actual cash value”  which itself is questionably low, it seems we cannot proceed with the certificate of destruction until USAA pays me the vehicle owner to replace my vehicle with one of like kind and quality.”
