Insurance company lost plates and doesnt want to cover fine

Good afternoon all,

Well, this is a very weird situation.

My car was totaled in September. Other driver's insurance company compensated the value very quickly and everything was fine. I assumed everything went well since I received a copy of canceled registration card.

Then at some point in December I received 65 chf fine from Cantonal Auto Office for not returning the plates and they also threatened with police. I never saw the car after it was towed after the accident.

I got in touch with the guy who was estimating the damage, and he told me that somehow plates were lost and it's not a big deal. He said I should pay the fine, go the auto office and report them as lost/stolen. Then I should submit the fine/invoice to the claims and it will be sorted out.

The visit to the Car Office was very quick and pleasant one.

Now, it seems as claim department doesn't want to cover it - since it's not part of the damages, but a "administrative thing between you and Car Office". I have already received 2 emails from them rejecting the claim. (after follow-up)

I also called the adjuster and he said he can't help, since claims department rejected it.

So it seems as I'm shafted from 2 sides now.

Common sense tells me to just forget about it, however, I'm wondering if there's still a way to get my 65 chf.

Lawyering up is definitely not a way to go here :-)
