You didn't specify where you live or where it was on the GSP. A google search for NJ state reps would have told you.

Yeah, they're hoping you don't bother.

Dollars to donuts, you ain't going to see a dime of repayment.

Do you have proof that the debris came from the work zone? how do you know it wasn't from another car and thrown from the roadway? Do you really expect an investigation where the now missing object came from?

The majority of the insurance policies cover all but a hundred dollar deductible for windshield replacement. mine was replaced last month and I wouldn't bother ever reporting it.

No one is obligated to investigate this claim for you, especially not the state police. Stuff happens, get over it.

Here's a story... I had my bumper scratched due to an unmarked dig site at a construction road in Princeton. They didn't mark it at all or detour the road. Since it was the bottom of the car, I really didn't care- but just for the sake of principal I decided to try to win my money back.

After contacting the authorities and finding the construction safety manager (who was very helpful and nice by the way), we got into a back and forth battle between the insurance company they had and I got repaid 5 months later after paying the repairs myself. It was a $1k repair and I felt so exhausted fighting for it. The insurance system is built around that I feel: even though you're right you'll have to fight tooth and nail for yourself because no one else is going to do it for you.

If you've got the time and the energy, find out who the construction company was and get their safety manager to check out your car's damages. Tell them where it happened and on what day. Get them to file a claim with the insurance company and get the claim # (most important step). Take that claim # and work a deal with your repair shop and the insurance company. Good luck!

in NJ, in my experience, it's your comprehensive deduct. sucks.

I say write to the representative. Write a factual, respectful letter with proper spelling and punctuation asking for their help in expediting the matter, and copy Veronique Hakim.
