Devastated Residents See No Future

Posted: Sun Sep 18 00:00:00 EDT 2005

Source: CHALMETTE, La., Sept.17 -- This small suburb wasn't exactly wiped off the map by Hurricane Katrina. But for many of the people who were allowed to visit their homes Saturday for the first time, it might as well have been.

There once was a man who went to a computer trade show.Each day as
he entered, the man told the guard at the door:
"I am a great thief, renowned for my feats of shoplifting.Be
forewarned, for this trade show shall not escape unplundered."
This speech disturbed the guard greatly, because there were millions
of dollars of computer equipment inside, so he watched the man carefully.
But the man merely wandered from booth to booth, humming quietly to himself.
When the man left, the guard took him aside and searched his clothes,
but nothing was to be found.
On the next day of the trade show, the man returned and chided the
guard saying: "I escaped with a vast booty yesterday, but today will be even
better."So the guard watched him ever more closely, but to no avail.
On the final day of the trade show, the guard could restrain his
curiosity no longer. "Sir Thief," he said, "I am so perplexed, I cannot live
in peace.Please enlighten me.What is it that you are stealing?"
The man smiled."I am stealing ideas," he said.

    Do Insurance Premiums Increase Every Year?
    Author: Jon Register


    Many people ask, "If I am supposed to get a renewal discount, why do my premiums seem to increase with each renewal?" The answer is not always so simple. Each year, new vehicles cost more then they did the previous year. It will probably cost more to fix a damaged vehicle than it did last year, or five years ago when you first bought your current policy. However, in many cases, your renewal premium will be less. Some factors that contribute to decreases in your premiums are straightforward.


    According to the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.), the cost of auto insurance is expected to rise only 3.5% in 2004, the smallest increase over the last four years. Why? The number of auto accidents is on the decline due to better drivers and safer cars as well as crackdowns on fraud and abuse. However, due to the rising costs for medical care, vehicle repairs and skyrocketing jury awards the potential of price increases remain a problem. Rising automobile theft rates and fraud will keep costs higher for motorists in some states, such as Florida, Massachusetts, and New York.


    The projected increase represents a substantial slowdown from 2003 when auto insurance costs rose by 7.8 percent, the I.I.I. observed. The average cost for auto insurance nationwide for 2004 is estimated at $871, an increase of $29 per vehicle from last year.


    Unfortunately, even though drivers are filing fewer claims these days, the claims that are filed are costing the insurance companies more than they used to. It is costing more to repair cars as the amount of damage sustained in crashes is up from what it was a few years ago. Some in the industry feel this is due to accidents involving sport utility vehicles.


    The cost of medical coverage is also increasing. This year insurers could pay as much as $20 billion in medical claims. Higher costs for hospitalization, medical care, medication and associated legal costs are also to blame.


    What can you expect to pay for insurance? In many cases, your renewal discount will offset a rate increase from your company. It can become hard to keep track of increases if you make many changes to your policy. When you move to a new residence or get a newer vehicle as these factors affect the rate you pay. Your driving record is also one of the factors the insurance company uses in determining your rate. Go to http://www.carinsurance.com. Not only will you get the rates of various insurance companies, you will see the A.M. Best rating for each company along side their rates for you personal situation.


    Now is the time for your fingers to punch their way to a quick rate analysis and view the ratings at the same time.
