The only way they want it cleared up is for me to hand over the money.

 

They have already been paid in full

 

What do you suggest I do?

What would you do if your power provider or city council was billing you incorrectly? Do that.

I've not had it happen with utility services but if the company has ignored my proof then I just suck it up and pay it.

 

Even when I'm in the right because it just gets explained away.

 

I had an accident in my car. The police report showed that the other party was at fault but because I didn't have insurance the other parties insurance company (they had full insurance) would only pay out for the current valuation of the car. Other losses were incurred like loss of fuel and registration and a repair quotation, but they refused to pay for those. Given the age of the car I had to accept their offer.

 

A community group is lending me their car until I can save up enough to purchase one to the same standard I had before.

 

The quotation I received to have it fixed to its current valuation was double the price the insurance paid me.

 

There was nothing I could do accept to agree to their price.

 

The insurance company never contacted me and I had to keep calling them.

 

It took them four months to pay out.

 

In this situation the law is that if a party is uninsured then all the third party insurances payout for is the current valuation of the car.

 

The third party insurer for the other party (AA insurance) said that our NZ laws mean they only have a legal obligation to pay for the market value of the car if the not-at-fault party is uninsured.

 

I just have to wear that.

Not great. But if you are not insured, you dont have a policy to cater for such options, so with that, its perhaps not surprising. You get a default payment so to speak.

I didn't have any policies for risk management and today I am facing a bankruptcy because of it.
