top insurance company in the state of West Virginia it
is our priority to establish a new policy concerning the
large deer population. The number of deer in our area is
beging to be a problem for our company's client intake.
One of the many reasons our company is rated number one
in the state is because of our many areas of coverage.
The problem consists of our strict and upheald rate
quotes. After the many car/deer collisions and injuries
sustained from these collisions, caused by the inate
headlight syndrome, our impacting rates are 45% or more.
Another huge problem is the crop damage which landowners
arent very happy with. For every acre of land and
property damage braught on by these deer another .7% of
our insurance costs rise. The increase in our rates,
caused by these damages, are lessening our client intake
and reducing the clients we already hold. The higher our
rates go up the less money we actually profit from.
Therefore, we have a small proposition that would most
likely, more than not, solve this more than petty
problem. We propose there be hunters insurance to cover
the expenses of accidence which happen while hunting.
This will create a more secure feeling to enable people
to hunt more efficently, which would cause a decrease in
the population of deer. This will also decrease the
number of automobile accidents, lowering the cost of our
rates. Here as, more clients for our company, and less
struggle to avoid problems which arise from this ongoing
