I think my biggest are 1L but I don't know, maybe 1.5L? Anyone know the sizes of theirs and can tell me how many inches they are? I've tried...

Their driver was at fault, you are entitled to more than, 10% of the cost of...
Quote: Originally Posted by MariesMama Oh hell no! Go up the chain, and keep throwing out that verbiage about a written guarantee on used seats of unknown origin. Insurance companies usually pitch a fit at first, but I've not heard about an agent going this far. Ridiculous. What car insurance company is this?! Bituminous. I have spoken with his supervisor in the past and she seems reasonable. I will be calling her tomorrow morning to see...

Now he is offering $67 per seat, because he found an expired roundabout (we have a Marathon and a Regent) for $60 on Craigs list. This guy is a real you know what. I am calling his supervisor tomorrow. Any advice is very appreciated. I can't believe how ridiculous...
Thanks for all the replies! I am trying to haggle with them about it. I can't believe they are giving me such a hard time. There should be a law that requires insurance companies to replace the seats. Any advice is really appreciated. So far I have provided printed information from the NHTSA (showing replacement requirements) and Targetdotcom (showing original cost of the seats). I provided links that show it is unsafe to purchase a used car seat. I also provided links...
We are in Oregon, we were rear ended by a dump truck. Both kids were in Britax seats. The other insurance company is now offering me $30 per seat for replacement. ::::::: what the heck? He is telling me that is all a used car seat is worth blah blah blah. Aren't there laws or something that require them to replace my seats? HELP!!
We have 2 children, with a little more than 4.5 years between. We found this to be ideal spacing for our family, because DH and I would get overwhelemd if we had more than 1 'baby'. DS 1 was old enough to be done being the baby, and he could be patient and wait for his needs to be met if the baby needed me. We are really happy with the way it worked out...but I think a lot of it has to do with my kid's personalities. Every family is different of course.

Yep, it's annoying when parents do it, I personally like listen to the accomplishments of other kiddos, without exaggeration of course. But seriously, let them do it. Whatever, I don't really care I just let it rest. I "rag" aout my DD achievments, I say what an amazing little person she is, how proud she makes DH and I feel, how mature she is for her age. And all the...

As he got older I got much better at talking to other children. Not everyone has an instant kid comfort thing going on. I really want to reiterate this because I want the OP to understand that she did NOTHING WRONG!! OP...It sounds like you were trying so hard and I am really sorry if come of the...
