    What the HECK?!

    Saturday: We have our family SUV at the repair shop and they put it on the corner in their lot. Two meth heads steal a car and cops are in pursuit. They hit a car and roll into our SUV. Our SUV is totaled and worse, I am told because the car was stolen, the owners and their insurance company aren't libel. I don't know who IS libel and how to be compensated.

    Sunday: Piece of crap walks in my yard and steals both, my road bike AND my mountain bike. Got him on cam but good luck finding him.

    Monday: Mother in law dies of cancer.

    Not trying to whine. Just ranting. Ultimately I decided to make the post just to ask for prayers and perhaps someone knows the proper way to go about getting insurance to cover my SUV. I only had liability. I know some of you must be have it tough right now too. Stay strong. I will pray for all of you as well.

    God bless.

    Well, since it was in the care and custody of the repair shop, THEY have liability to ensure it's safety. I'd be having a very hard discussion w/them to find out who their insurance carrier is. Also - were the keys in the car that was stolen, or was it hotwired? If the keys were left in it, the owner was negligent, so the "hold harmless" might not apply. Finally, YOU were the victim of a crime - talk to your local PD about the victim compensation program.

    Second item....sorry - but a Life Lesson - don't leave your stuff out where it can be stolen.

    Above all, sorry about your MIL - obviously, she meant something to you AND your wife. Hold onto each other - it's gonna be tough for her for a while, she's gonna need you.

    Wow. That is awful.

    Will the shop's insurance cover your car? Aren't they liable for it while it's on their property and in their control? I would think their insurance would cover it if it were stolen or burned in a fire; this seems similar.

    Dang my brutha... what a run of bad luck & horrible weekend. Sorry for your loss with the MIL, bikes & SUV. Your family will be in my prayers tonight.
    I hate thieves, so i feel your pain with the bikes. When i was a kid i learned my lesson, when my bike got stollen off my porch & we lived in a small town ... that was back in the 80's.

    I wish i had some great advice about the SUV situation. Im not sure whos insurance would be liable under an "act of god". Maybe the repair shops insurance would cover it. It might cost you an attorney & some court time.

    if you had uninsured driver on your policy that should cover your SUV but I agree the shop should be responsible for it.

    May the Good Lord send you His peace during these difficult times.

    An hour with a good attorney (probably having him send a letter to the shop if he feels they are liable) would be the next best step on the SUV.
