            Save money on your car insurance

            The no-claims discount you get on your car insurance is a reward for safe driving – and can cut the cost of your car insurance by as much as 75% with most insurers. So it’s good to know that you can take your discount with you when you switch insurers.

            How many no-claims discount years will my new insurer honour?

            Work out how many of the years you’ve built up will be recognised

            Pick your insurer

            Sorry! Please pick an insurer.

            Maximum number of

            With most insurers, the size of discount you can achieve increases until you have built up five NCD years, at which point the maximum discount percentage is achieved. Despite this, some companies continue to recognise if you go further years without making a claim – but they don’t increase the size of your discount (or at least not by much).

            However, it can still be helpful. If your insurance company recognises up to, say, nine years of claims-free driving and you have an accident, you might lose two years and drop back to seven. As that’s still higher than five, making a claim would not jeopardise your discount.

            Other companies will always drop you back to three years after an accident, regardless of your number of years claims-free.

            Maximum No Claims

            The amount of discount earned increases with each year of claim-free driving.

            So after one year you might get 30%, with the percentage increasing each year until you get 70% NCD after five years.

            Most firms offer a maximum NCD of 70%, although some offer 75% or 80%.

            Does it have an

            Accelerated Bonus Scheme?

            Some insurance companies offer drivers with no NCD an accelerated bonus scheme, which awards a year’s NCD after 10 months claims-free driving.

            After 10 months, you can either renew with the same firm, or move to another firm with the one-year bonus intact.

            Save money on your car insurance

            Car insurance is a hefty expense, but there’s a good chance you can save money by shopping around rather than staying with the same firm at renewal. Loyalty doesn’t pay!

            Understand your no claims discount

            Here’s how it works. Most insurers offer a premium discount for every year without a claim, usually up to a maximum of five years. For example, you might earn a 30% discount on next year’s premium, if you do not make a claim in the previous year. Drivers who can boast five consecutive claim-free years can expect a discount of as much as 75% – or even more in some cases. The size of the discount, sometimes called a bonus, varies from insurer to insurer. Companies also calculate the discount in different ways. A number of firms even allow the discount to build up over 10 years or offer an ‘accelerated’ discount or bonus, where the discount applies after 10 months instead of 12.

            Making a claim

            It’s worth finding out what would happen to your discount if you put in a claim as you won’t necessarily forfeit the full amount. For example, if you have built up a discount over five years and make a claim in year six, you might lose only two years of discount. So, when you come to renew your car insurance, you would benefit from a three-year bonus. Remember that your insurance premium can still go up at renewal even if you don’t make any claims. That’s because the driver’s claims history is only one element in the premium calculation. Insurers also take into account factors such as your address and mileage, when they quote for cover. That’s why it’s always important to shop around when you renew, to make sure you’re getting the most competitive price for the cover you want.

            Monroe Street business group files $15 million tort claim against city to stop lane reduction,


            UPDATED: Fri., Sept. 22, 2017, 9:53 a.m.

            Tort claim A pedestrian crosses North Monroe on Wednesday, April 5, 2017. A coalition of business owners on North Monroe on Thursday filed a $15 million tort claim against the city of Spokane, citing “significant revenue losses” during the city’s planned renovation of the street. (Kathy Plonka / The Spokesman-Review)

            A coalition of business owners on North Monroe filed a $15 million tort claim Thursday against the city of Spokane, citing “significant revenue losses” during the city’s planned renovation of the street.

            The Monroe Street Business Association, which was incorporated in June by Gary Jarvis, the owner of Skipper’s Seafood ’n Chowder House on the street, claims that the city of Spokane and the Spokane Regional Transportation Council planned the road work with “utter indifference” to how it would impact the businesses on the street.

            “We are not worried 100 percent about the businesses,” Jarvis said. “It’s about the community. We are just trying to represent the citizens in our area who are against the project. We are trying to give them a voice.”

            City utilities spokeswoman Marlene Feist confirmed the city received the $15 million tort claim Thursday afternoon.

            “We did receive a claim for damages,” Feist said. “Obviously, we have not had an opportunity to review it at this point and we have no comment at this time.”

            Feist did push back against assertions that the city has ignored the concerns of local business owners, noting that it has a $15,000 contract with Washington State University’s Washington Small Business Development Center to do outreach on Monroe, provide information about the project to businesses, and assist in cash-flow planning, marketing and budget making. The center will also help businesses plan to reduce expenses while keeping their operations going.

            “We’re trying to do everything we can to assist in the time of construction,” Feist said.

            Bob Dunn, a private practice attorney who has won many settlements after filing lawsuits against the city of Spokane, is representing the business association against the city, transportation council and the 17 people who sit on the council.

            A tort claim is a necessary first step in the legal process to file a lawsuit against the city. If the city rejects the claim, a lawsuit could follow.

            “I’m getting reports in from the members about what the losses will be over the two-year construction period,” Dunn said of the business group, which he said “consists of businesses up and down Monroe.”

            At issue is the North Monroe Corridor project, a $7.1 million plan to reduce the number of lanes from five to three, construct more visible crosswalks and make the business center’s sidewalks wider with more trees and benches. The city will have two contracts out for the job, effectively doubling the workforce to complete the project in a seven-month time frame between April and October.

            The complete revamping of the north-south arterial between Indiana and Cora avenues was first adopted by the Spokane City Council in 2014. The idea for the Monroe project came from the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Plan, developed that same year by neighborhood leaders as the guiding document for the neighborhood’s future .

            E.J. Iannelli, former chair of the neighborhood, said in an email that North Monroe businesses, including Jarvis at Skipper’s, were consulted multiple times during the neighborhood planning phase. He also suggested that Jarvis’ business association didn’t fully represent the neighborhood’s businesses, noting that the North Monroe Business District is the longer-established business association on Monroe. He said “most, if not all” of that association’s members are in support of the project.

            City Councilwoman Karen Stratton, who represents the neighborhood, said that the council had approved the grant award and the neighborhood plan, but there was no single vote authorizing the project, as some opponents of the work have claimed in targeting specific City Council members up for re-election.

            “I regret in all of this they feel that this is going to come to a vote for the council, and that we can stop it,” Stratton said.

            The council could adopt a resolution rejecting the grant money and nixing the project, Stratton said, but “my gut feeling tells me it wouldn’t pass.” Such a move would also ignore the work of the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood in adopting a plan for the street, she said.

            City officials say work will last for the construction season of 2018, over a period of roughly seven months. Design of the project is underway, and the work will occur between March and October.

            The project is largely funded by a 2014 Federal Highway Safety Improvement grant for $3.8 million, and a 2014 Washington State Bicyclist and Pedestrian Safety grant for $326,800.

            Dunn said his clients are against both the construction schedule and the design of the street.

            “It’s a combination of everything. This project is called the Monroe road diet project,” Dunn said. “Everyone is concerned that it’s going to choke down the traffic for two years and, when it opens, no one will ever come back to visit.”

            It is unclear what other businesses besides Skipper’s belong to the group. In August, the owner of the Vintage Rabbit Antique Mall announced the store’s closure in anticipation of the street work.

            According to city data, average daily traffic counts in 2016 ranged from 17,000 to 18,300 on that stretch of Monroe. As a principal arterial, it sees more traffic than most streets, but less than other north-south arterials north of the river. Northwest Boulevard, Maple, Ash, Division, Hamilton, Freya and Market streets all see higher traffic counts.

            The city says the three-lane road can handle up to 25,000 vehicles a day. Other three-lanes roads in Spokane handle 20,000 vehicles, and other communities say three lanes can accommodate 25,000.

            An online survey done earlier this year by the city showed nearly 69 percent of respondents approved of the project. A radio ad produced last December by the Monroe Business Association said 90 percent of businesses on Monroe disapproved.

            North Monroe has long been an important street for commuters, but plans city engineers have had for it over the decades have varied.

            North Monroe was first graded in 1889, transforming a route that “was nothing more than a trail extending from the river to Five Mile Prairie” into a road for vehicles, according to a 1955 article in The Spokesman-Review. Twelve years later, it remained unpaved and a “sea of mud.”

            Over the following decades, cars swamped American cities, and roads became a serious civic matter. In 1930, the city widened North Monroe for the first time. Traffic engineers marveled at the spiking traffic counts on the Monroe Street Bridge. Spokane United Railways, the predecessor to the Spokane Transit Authority, swapped streetcars for buses on Monroe in 1934.

            By 1970, Spokane motorists had yet to grow tired of the Monroe commute, and the street had an average daily traffic count of 23,450. Engineers didn’t know what to do. The road was packed and hundreds of auto incidents occurred on the street between the river and the base of the North Hill at Cora every year.

            Things were so bad on North Monroe that city traffic engineers began envisioning a new Monroe, though much different from the incarnation currently in the works.

            In 1976, with traffic counts at 29,000 vehicles a day, they proposed eliminating all street parking on 31 blocks of North Monroe, from the river to Cora, widening the street and adding lanes to allow for the “safe and efficient flow” of traffic. The city had done the same thing on Division peaceably, but there were protests on Monroe.

            Utlimately, City Council voted to widen the street and install “traffic bays.” The street’s sidewalks were narrowed to accommodate the new design.

            In 1985, with daily traffic counts at 32,850 and climbing, city engineers were still fixated on Monroe’s flow. They had a list of options to make the road better for traffic. At the top of their list was building another bridge and making Monroe and Lincoln a north couplet, an idea that stayed alive and gained strong momentum at the turn of the century as the city bought land and sought permits to have the span built. In 2000, the City Council voted unanimously to abandon the unpopular effort to build the bridge.

            The construction alone will become an economic burden on businesses and force them to reduce staffs, Jarvis said.

            “I ve been asked thousands of times, ‘How do we sign a petition? How do we vote?’” Jarvis said. “If you poll the citizens of Spokane, they are not for the project. It s not even a small number.”

            Due to incorrect information provided by the city of Spokane, this story previously misstated the funding sources for the planned renovation of North Monroe. It is not receiving a 2015 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant for $475,000. Also, the project is funded by a 2014 Federal Highway Safety Improvement grant. A reporter error had the wrong year for the federal grant.

            Staff writers Thomas Clouse and Kip Hill contributed to this story.

            Confessions of an insurance claims adjuster

            Insurance claims adjuster jobs

            Photo credit: Frank Veronsky

            Ever wonder what it’s like to be an insurance claims adjuster? We asked New York-based Scott Congiusti, assistant vice president of claims for HUB International insurance brokerage, to take us behind the scenes of a claims adjuster’s life.

            A lot in common with being a cop

            I was working as a police officer in New Jersey when I fractured my back in an off-duty accident. During my recovery, I started looking at what I could do in the private sector and wound up hiring on with Allstate, handling automobile claims. It was a good mental fit because I like figuring things out and I function best under high stress. A mundane, sedentary job would drive me nuts. Strangely enough, a lot of adjusters have a criminal justice degree; they just might not like shift work or carrying a gun.

            Every day starts with the hotline

            You come in every day and you have a list of automobile claims assigned to you from the 24-hour hotline. If I was lucky, I’d have two or three, but it was usually more. Still, I had more information from the hotline than I did in law enforcement, where somebody would call and say, “There’s a fight in progress,” but you didn’t know what caused it or how many were involved.

            Create a news alert for

            Camera required, other gear optional

            Absolutely the most important tool is a digital camera, cellphone or tablet to capture photos. You also need a lengthy tape measure, and maybe a moisture meter to detect standing water behind walls or under floors. In a catastrophe, you need protective gear and a ladder in case you have to climb on a roof. And regardless of technology, I still carry a notepad, because depending on where you are, it’s not always practical to carry a $2,000 tablet around with you.

            Adjuster styles differ by insurance types

            There are definitely differences between working for a publicly traded, stock-held company and (and working for) a mutual company where the clients own the company. Stock-owned companies are a little more black and white on procedures, because they’re large and have thousands of adjusters. With mutuals, the policyholder is also a shareholder, so they tend to be a little more flexible. I wouldn’t say one is better or worse than the other. They both get to the same place, just from slightly different angles.

            Everybody needs their car claim done NOW!

            How are we perceived by the customer? Typically, you’re the answer to their call for help. With an automobile claim, they might need a rental car or body-shop estimate, so it’s more immediate, whereas with someone’s home it is very, very personal — you’re going to be in their house. But at the end of the day, you’re seen in this positive light as the person who’s going to make their life good again.

            The rarer the claim, the greater the appeal

            The least frequent claims are probably the most interesting, just because they’re different. But they’re also the most disruptive to the policyholders, so they tend to be the most difficult. House fires, for example, are pretty rare — you don’t get a full house-burns-to-the-ground claim very often. They’re very tragic, very personal. There’s a lot of emotion involved, so they’re probably the most difficult to deal with on the homeowner side.

            The one claim no adjuster can ever fix

            On the auto side, absolutely the worst claims are fatalities. I’ve dealt with quite a few of those. There’s nothing you can say or do to make it better. I can pay them $10 million on a policy or buy them a new car or build them a new house, but it’s never going to replace the person who passed away. It’s never going to fix it, and you’re often left with this sense that you didn’t do enough, because you can’t.

            Toughest part about being an adjuster?

            The hardest part of my job? That’s easy: living on call. For the last eight years of my career, my cellphone has only been off when my two children were born and anytime I’m on an airplane. Otherwise it’s either on silent or just on, period. My wife’s used to seeing my phone ring at 2 or 3 in the morning and me waking up and going to get my laptop. It seems to be a reoccurrence every single Christmas Eve.

            By now, I’m used to it; my family’s used to it. But for somebody coming from a typical 9-to-5 job, it can be very hard to adjust to. The trade-off for me is, I don’t work shifts anymore. Being awakened at 2 in the morning for half an hour is so much better than working midnight to 8 and trying to sleep when everybody else is outside enjoying the sunshine.

            UK Road Accidents Map

            According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, there are around six deaths on UK roads every day. Whilst Britain has one of the best road safety records in the world, there is still much more to be done. To highlight the number of accidents that occur on our roads, Accident Claims have created a UK Road Accident Map.

            The accident map, which includes data from the Government’s 2011 dataset, includes a range of information concerning accidents in your local area. To find out how many traffic collisions have occurred near you, simple enter a postcode or click on a region and zoom to view details. Accident map users are also able to register and enter details of accidents they were involved in to see it appear in the map. Accident Claims plan to use this data that people enter to campaign for safer roads in areas where clusters appear.

            Stuart Kightley, a Partner at Accident Claims, said: Within 100 yards of my office in Camden there have been 4 fatal accidents in recent years. In three of them, a motorcyclist was killed. This interactive accident map will allow us to identify accident hotspots, and particularly those associated with fatal and serious injury accidents, which we can use to campaign for better road safety for motorcyclist, cyclist and pedestrians.

            About Us

            Here, at Accident Claims, we take on personal injury compensation cases from minor accident claims to traumatic head injury claims. We have over 20 years national experience in this area and consider each case individually, providing services that include clear legal advice and representation for individuals and businesses.

            Compensation for Auto Accident Personal Injury Claims, claims for injury.#Claims #for #injury

            Personal Injury Settlements

            If you have been injured in a car accident, you can receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and related expenses from either your car insurance company or the other driver’s insurance company, depending on who was at fault.

            The following information can help you get the most out of your personal injury claim after an accident.

            Types of Car Insurance Coverage for Personal Injury

            Before you seek compensation, you should understand the types of car insurance that cover personal injury. Which one you use will depend on your policy and the nature of your car accident.

            • The negligent driver’s bodily injury liability coverage.
              • This applies when the accident was the other driver’s fault.
              • NOTE: Your own liability policy will NOT cover you.
            • Personal injury protection (PIP), also called “no-fault insurance.”
              • Unlike liability, PIP insurance will pay for your medical costs, up to the policy’s limits, even if you were at fault.
            • Medical payments coverage, which pays for medical expenses regardless of fault.
              • This policy is similar to PIP insurance; however, unlike PIP it does not cover lost income, funeral expenses, and loss of services; medical payment only pays for medical bills.
            • Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, which pays your bodily injury expenses if you’ve been:
              • The victim of a hit and run accident.
              • Hit by a driver who possesses no insurance or limits that don’t meet your expenses.

            Fault and Your Claim

            In some situations, such as rear-end collisions, the other driver will almost always be considered at fault. However, other types of accidents are not so clear.

            The best way to help your car insurance company determine fault is to present your claims adjuster with a thorough explanation of what happened. If you don’t feel you’re at fault, present a reasoned argument detailing why and provide supporting details.

            Any careless behavior that contributes to a car accident is called negligence.

            Contributory Negligence

            A small number of states apply contributory negligence when determining whether you are entitled to compensation. Under contributory negligence, if you are even partly at fault for the accident, you will not receive any payment for a personal injury claim.

            Comparative Negligence

            Most states use a comparative negligence system when deciding how to compensate victims of car accidents. Under comparative negligence, your compensation may be reduced if you are partly at fault.

            The exact rules depend on your state’s laws:

            • Pure comparative negligence: You get compensation in proportion to the amount of the accident that was not your fault.
              • So, if your injuries totaled $60,000 and you were considered 50% at fault for the accident, your damages will be reduced by 50%, so you’ll receive $30,000.
            • Modified comparative fault: You get compensation in proportion to the amount of the accident that was not your fault, but only if you are responsible for LESS THAN 50% of the accident (or 51%, depending on your state).

            Factors that Affect Compensation for Personal Injury

            You can shorten the amount of time to have your claim settled if you contact your auto insurance company as soon as possible after you are in an accident. Your insurance company will assign you a claims adjuster who will get the claims process moving.

            Factors that the claims adjuster will review include:

            • The police report.
            • Whether and how quickly you sought medical attention.
              • Visit the emergency room or your physician as soon as possible after an accident if you are injured.
            • Any pre-existing injuries that you are claiming became worse as a result of the accident.
              • Ask your physician to take new x-rays or ultrasounds of those injured areas. Comparisons in the pre-accident and post-accident scans can help show that the accident caused additional damage to the area.
            • DUI/DWI charges and other citations related to the accident.
            • Statements that you make to other drivers or passengers after the accident.
              • Keep in mind that although your emotions might be intense following a car accident, you should avoid making promises or statements of blame.
            • Witness testimonies.
            • Photographs taken of the accident scene.
            • Records and documents that validate the number of days and wages you lost due to the accident.
            • Personal injury limits written into your car insurance policy.

            Evidence and Documentation

            Solid evidence makes your claim stronger. You want to prepare as much documentation as possible when preparing to submit a claim to the car insurance company. You can gather evidence in the days following a car accident.

            • Take notes on anything you can remember about the accident as soon as you are physically able.
            • Return to the scene of the accident to search for and take pictures of evidence.
              • You may notice something, such as a dirty traffic sign, that led you to make a driving mistake and get into a car accident.
            • Preserve physical evidence, such as a torn piece of clothing or a rock that was in the middle of the street, causing you to lose control.
            • Contact witnesses.
              • If you collected witness contact information at the time of the accident, contact them as soon as possible to get their observations down on paper.
            • Document your injuries.
              • Take photographs and get medical attention to provide evidence of the seriousness of your injuries.

            Damages in Personal Injury Cases

            The “damages” in a personal injury case refer to the cost of your injuries. They consider the following as they relate to your injuries sustained in an accident:

            • Direct financial cost.
            • Emotional and indirect costs.

            Compensatory damages are most common. They include the following:

            • Specific damages. This refers to the specific valued amounts related to accident-related injuries or loss. They include:
              • Cost of medical bills.
              • Lost wages.
              • Loss of earning capacity.
              • Property loss.
            • General damages. These damages are those that do not have easily calculated dollar amounts and are subjective. They include:
              • Pain and suffering.
              • Emotional distress.
              • Inability to have children as a result of accident-related injuries.
              • Loss of an extremity.
              • Loss of consortium, if the accident caused a strain on your relationship.

            If the defendant was especially careless when causing the accident, you may also receive punitive damages, which are meant to punish the defendant, and are imposed by the court.

            If you have questions about damages or your personal injury case in general, speak to your auto insurance agent or ask a personal injury attorney.

            EXCLUSIVE: Weinstein files $3.8M claim against Evergreen State

            Tort claim

          • Bret Weinstein, the Evergreen State College professor who was driven from campus by a mob of students earlier this year, is preparing to file a $3.8 million claim against the public institution.
          • The claim accuses Evergreen State of “fostering a racially hostile work and retaliatory environment” by encouraging the student protests that forced Weinstein to flee campus for his own safety.
          • The students were upset with Weinstein for objecting to a “Day of Absence” event that called for white students and faculty to leave campus for a day of diversity programming.
          • Tort claim

            Bret Weinstein, the Evergreen State College professor who was driven from campus by a mob of students earlier this year, is preparing to file a $3.8 million claim against the public institution.

            According to documents obtained by Campus Reform, Weinstein and his wife, Heather Heying, have filed a standard Tort Claim form against Evergreen State for a sum of $3,850,000.

            “The College has refused to protect its employees from. verbal and written hostility based on race.”

            The legal document was signed by the couple s attorney and received by Washington s Department of Enterprise Services Office of Risk Management on July 5.

            The official claim follows a litigation hold request sent out in early June, asking the school s employees to retain and preserve all evidence that relates to the 2017 Day of Absence; the student-led protests on campus that took place during the last school year; and any records that relate to Weinstein, his wife, activist professor Naima Lowe, and administrator Rashida Love.

            Please be on notice that this demand covers not only those records covered by any public records acts but those which are or were communicated by private means of any type including but not limited to email and photography. This demand should be immediately distributed campus-wide to all faculty and staff, Weinstein and Heying wrote on June 4.

            Take note that the destruction or alteration of evidence is a felony, the document added. This demand is made in contemplation of litigation. Please promptly acknowledge receipt of this communication and confirm that you will comply.

            Tort claimTort claim

            In an email to Campus Reform, Weinstein s attorney underscored that the $3.8 million is a total claimed on behalf of both professors collectively for the hostile work environment that has been fostered at the college over the past year or so.

            He also noted that there is no current litigation at this point, since a tort claim must be filed at least 60 days prior to initiating legal action in the state of Washington.

            Campus Reform also obtained hundreds of pages of documents, including emails and social media posts, that relate to the requested litigation hold in June and the tort claim in July.

            Email exchanges reviewed by Campus Reform feature harsh criticisms of Weinstein s political views and calls for his termination, including one email sent by a faculty emerita that blasts Weinstein s appearance on Fox News and his public comments about the racial tensions in Evergreen.

            Bret, I don’t know what you were thinking. By describing yourself to Tucker [Carlson] as a deeply progressive person you provided him ammunition for the claim that the crazies are even going after progressives. part of the email reads.

            Tort claim

            I hope that you won’t deepen your relation with Fox or pass on more raw material for Tucker’s campus craziness show, the missive continues. I have no doubt that you and your family are suffering due to recent missives and events; but so are many others on campus.

            Other communications include A Letter to the campus and Bret Weinstein from some Jews bent on the destruction of White Supremacy, that calls for the termination of Weinstein s employment.

            We want to talk about the ways that Weinstein is positioning himself as a Jew to invalidate the claims of racism being raised against him, the letter begins.

            Bret Weinstein is wrong, he has put you in danger, and we will not allow him to hide behind our histories in order to dodge responsibility for his abhorrent and reprehensible words and actions, it concludes. NO COPS ON CAMPUS. FIRE BRET WEINSTEIN. BLACK LIVES MATTER.

            Tort claim

            Tort claim

            The factual narrative submitted alongside the tort claim argues that Evergreen State has permitted, cultivated, and perpetuated a racially hostile and retaliatory work environment, asserting that Through a series of decisions made at the highest levels, including to officially support a day of racial segregation, the College has refused to protect its employees from repeated provocative and corrosive verbal and written hostility based on race, as well as threats of physical violence.

            Weinstein s attorney also maintains that the college has failed to set and enforce necessary boundaries in the workplace on campus, selectively has chosen not to enforce its student Code of Conduct, and sent the unmistakable message that the school will tolerate (and even endorse) egregious violations (and even crimes) purportedly to advance racial social goals, diminishing the collegiate experience for all, and fostering a racially hostile work and retaliatory environment for faculty and staff.

            Tort claim

            Additionally, the factual narrative of the case blasts the college for its policy on the Day of Absence, an event that asked for white students faculty and staff to leave campus for a day of diversity programming.

            On its official website, the College asserted that it had never asked whites to leave campus on the Day of Absence a demonstrably false statement. It also asserts that demonstrations were nonviolent and took place. in isolated areas of the college, which is also false, the attorney states.

            In doing so, TESC [The Evergreen State College] continued to support its racially discriminatory conduct, publicly rejecting Professor Weinstein s complaints of racial segregation for which he has been repeatedly excoriated, threatened, attacked, and wrongly accused of being a racist in the workplace, for months, the narrative concludes.

            Tort claim
