While I was away, someone caused some minor damage to a corner of the house with their truck (chipped/cracked masonry, missing mortar, etc). My neighbour dealt with the initial incident, and I have the culprit's insurance details, and will be initiating a claim. Having not claimed on my house policy before, do I need to contact my insurance as well? Or do I just go through the insurance of the person who caused the damage? Thank you!
I was in a fender-bender that was indisputably the other driver's fault, but I'm not sure how to proceed with the insurance claim because there was already some mild prior damage to my car from a couple of scrapes in my house's treacherous driveway that I never brought to my insurer's attention. Can I get in trouble with my insurance company (USAA) for failing to report those minor solo collisions, and how much will it complicate a claim against the at-fault driver's insurance? [more inside]

I ordered a box set from an amazon user at the end of april listed as "like new" which it wasn't. Asked for a refund, and he asked for more details and pictures which i gave, then i heard nothing for well over a week. So i decided to file an a to z claim on Monday, then today (Thursday) he says how he had been locked out of his bank account due to some banking issue. Now he's all gung ho to give me a refund after i send the stuff back and drop the a to z. I feel a little weary trusting him. He has good feed back, but it's only 6 feedbacks. Should i do as he suggests or continue letting amazon look into it?

Fellow MeFi's, I am debating whether I should dispute the outcome of a marine insurance claim. Any input from someone that has dealt with insurance companies would be greatly appreciated. However, as I realise that my opinion on the matter is obviously biased, any independent assesment of the situation would also be very useful. [more inside]

I just got a call from my insurance company telling me that someone had filed a claim against me for an accident I didn't have! They seemed to believe me when I said I didn't have an accident and are forwarding it to central claims. I'll hopefully get a call from them this afternoon with more information. Does this happen a lot? How would someone get enough information about me to file an insurance claim against me?
