Insider Car Insurance Tips You Cannot Afford To Ignore

The costs of running a car are increasing all the time so it is more important than ever to start cutting back on your insurance premiums.

Insider Tips
Insurance is a competitive market. Providers are in the business to make money and deals are not always as great as they first look. Understanding the rules of the game can help you to make a more informed choice about your car insurance. Before you start looking for a policy here are some important insider tips that could save you a lot of money:

• Credit Records – many people don’t realise that their credit record could make a difference to their car insurance premiums. However industry studies have shown there is a direct link between consumer credit scores and car insurance premiums. If you have a poor credit score your premiums will typically be higher. This is because statistically you are more likely to make a claim against your insurance or fall behind with your payments. Having a poor credit score can increase your car insurance ‘risk factor’. This means it is important for your overall financial health to keep up with your credit accounts and try to maintain a good credit score.

• Car Type – the model of car you own affects your car insurance premiums. Insurance companies have a rating system for each make and model of car. This is based on data gathered from national safety, accident and theft reports. It is worth checking how much it costs to insure a car before you buy. You could make a significant saving on your car insurance premiums by simply opting for a car in one of the lower ratings bracket.

• Pay Upfront – one important insider tip that can save a lot of people money on their car insurance is to pay upfront. Insurers can charge you a lot more for the privilege of spreading your costs out across the year in monthly or quarterly payments. Another benefit of paying upfront for the whole year is that you will not have to worry about any missed payments. This is a good idea if you have a lot of credit product repayments to manage every month.

• Minor Claims – try to avoid making too many small claims on your car insurance if you can. Minor incidences costing under £1,000 can soon add up on your insurance record and send your premiums soaring. You will save money overall if you pay out for small claims yourself and save your insurance for when it is really needed.

• Modifications – you must inform your insurance company of any modifications to your car. This can include something as simple as fitting alloy wheels. If you fail to report modifications to your insurer this could invalidate any claims later on. Modifications can push premiums up so think twice whether they are really necessary before you start upgrading your vehicle.

Citizens Win Huge Supreme Court Victory Over Big Pharma And The Fda

In a stunning and unexpected 6-3 ruling the right-leaning Supreme Court went against the wishes of the last president, took the wind out of the sails of health care reform of the current president, sent irresponsible Big Pharma a major wake up call, and bluntly told the arrogant FDA that they are indeed not above the rule of law. It is a major victory for every American citizen.

Central to the issue is a power a struggle between the federal government and states, which in this situation meant the federal government authority to pre-empt your state rights to sue if you are injured by a drug. The FDA, acting on behalf of the Bush administration and on the side of Big Pharma, has helped tie up thousands of drug injury lawsuits across the country. The FDA, who is supposed to be protecting consumers from drug injury and ensuring a correct risk/safety picture for any person taking a drug, was instead trying to shirk their responsibility and simply claim that Americans had no right to sue.

This convoluted attempt by the FDA to undermine consumer safety was one of the main themes in my 2006 book, Fight for Your Health: Exposing the FDA’s Betrayal of America. The Bush Administration had intentionally appointed anti-safety people in high positions within the FDA, starting with its Chief Counsel, Daniel Troy (and continued as a legal philosophy after Troy was forced out for his Big Pharma connections). Troy set in motion the legal problem the Supreme Court just decided.

During the final years of the Bush administration cancer industry insider Andrew von Eschenbach, MD, was appointed to run the FDA, and Wall Street insider, Scott Gottlieb, MD, was second in command. These individuals sought to fully implement the FDA label as senior to any rights of citizens. Their intention was to make sure that new biotech drugs would be protected from lawsuits, as the FDA wanted to speed new and even more dangerous drugs onto the market so as to foster the development of the biotech industry. In essence, the FDA management wanted to turn the American public into one large clinical experiment, with no right of recourse when injured.

This was occurring against a backdrop wherein the FDA couldn’t even name all the drugs currently on the market, had failed to demand required aftermarket follow up safety testing on drugs, and had intentionally withheld safety information on existing drugs from the public. The current situation with drugs is that almost no drug, even blockbusters and those in use for decades, have an accurate risk/benefit profile.

Americans who use medications are already taking risks of unknown magnitude, which is a main reason over 100,000 Americans are killed every year and over 3 million are injured so seriously they need hospital care (ironically, over half those injuries occur while already in the hospital).

The FDA knows full well that when a drug is approved for the market the full extent of the side effects won’t be known for years. History shows us time and again that Big Pharma actively hides risk data from the FDA and pays for “science” that distorts reality. This irresponsible behavior goes along with closed-door negotiations with the FDA, and has resulted in numerous drug disasters like Vioxx. FDA managers oftentimes go against the wishes of their own safety scientists and then move on to six figure salaries in the industry they regulate. Doctors are not apprised of the actual risks and consumers are in the dark.

Currently, there are 450,000 additional new cases of heart failure every year in Americans over 65, a fact that parallels the increased use of heart-weakening statins in this older group. It is only a matter of time before the shoe drops on the 20-billion-dollar-a-year statin industry.

The FDA insistence that a drug label, based on what is known at the time of approval, should supersede citizen’s states rights to sue if they were injured, has almost nothing to do with consumer safety. Rather, it is a federal power grab that is in the best financial interests of Big Pharma and Big Biotech, industries that do not have consumer safety as their top priority.

By the way, don’t think President Obama is on the side of the citizens. In the health care section of the stimulus bill, there is specific pre-emption language. If the federal government is in charge of health care it will be named in future lawsuits when patients are injured from the care it doles out or doesn’t allow.

The current Supreme Court ruling will undermine any system of federal health care wherein the drugs being used are injuring people. Experts believe this system is so badly broken, due to gross FDA management incompetence, that it will take 10 years of studies and many billions of dollars just to understand the actual risks of the drugs Americans are already taking.

In writing for the majority, Justice John Paul Stevens put Big Pharma on notice. The defendant in this case, Wyeth, had argued that it could not comply with both federal and state law. Stevens told them they had a fundamental misunderstanding of regulation and were trying to hide behind the FDA, going on to say that it is a central premise of federal drug regulation that the manufacturer bears responsibility for the content of its label at all times. That is not the news Big Pharma wanted to hear.

Stevens went on to write that there was no merit in the argument that the FDA’s labeling decisions could supersede state law, saying that this argument was “an untenable interpretation of congressional intent and an overbroad view of an agency’s power to pre-empt state law.” He pointed out that the FDA tried to push this on the public without any opportunity for comment from the public or from states, all done against a backdrop wherein the FDA is not able to keep up with safety issues in the first place, meaning that the FDA position lacked “thoroughness, consistency and persuasiveness.” Stevens stated that under such lacking standards the Bush position “is entitled to no weight.”
