A little over a month ago, on April 7th, my mum's Model X100D was involved in an At Fault accident (my dad crashed it into the side of their house). Early last week, at the beginning of May, the decision was made by USAA to write off the car, just as the still incomplete repair estimate from the auto body shop came up to $60,000. Earlier THIS week, on Monday the 7th of May, I gave my verbal formal release, allowing a tow truck company to remove my mum's Model X from the autobody shop's storage yard and transport it to an auto junk yard. As of last week, I've not yet received any word on how much my payout is going to be. In releasing my mum's wrecked car to USAA and the tow truck company, I've relinquished what little leverage I had to have them hurry up with a settlement. Does anybody know why it would take so long for an insurance company like USAA to propose a settlement figure? It's been over a month since the accident. The car was relatively new, at five months old with only 5,000 miles. Thanks.
