  • Question about Medical payment for rear end accident (someone hit the car I was in)?

    We were rear-ended at a red light back in Feb. Police was called and a report filed. I ended up going to see a Chiropractor from Feb - May for treatment for my neck. The bill is close to $2000. The insurance of the person who hit us only wants to pay $500. What can I do? Is it going to cost me if I get a lawyer. I don't want any extra money. I just want the bill payed. I don't have the money to pay the difference (1500) Will threatening them with a lawyer get them to work work with me? I am not sure what my options are. thanks..

  • Insurance company overpaid on Medical Bills then closed claim...?

    My husband was involved in a car accident 3 years ago. He got sleep apenea from neck injury. We have used and settled with other parties insurance - then began with our insurance company - they asked our lawyer for unpaid bills and lawyer office sent them all the bills (paid and unpaid) Which insurnace co then paid all over again and then closed our claim! We figured out what had happened and insurance co got money back but is not reopening claim. Hubby has not recieved medical treatment for nearly a year since the dr's etc wouldnt see him because they werent getting paid..... lawyer and insurance co wants to settle for miniscule sum. What do you think???

  • My "buddy" is suing my insurance company, what could happen?

    Ok, so a little over a month he was involved in a car accident with a car of friends. It was and 1 hour and 30 minute drive. My friend said he was tired and drunk, telling me to drive (I was sober) so I did. I say you do not want to drive because the car was manual (which can lead, but I've been driving car for 4 years. On the way home I fell asleep at the wheel and the car is totaled. Neither of us was hurt, was good it was good. became the police report called our insurance. their paid for the car. Two weeks later, he called me to come, more to talk about. bombarded me by his family for two hours basically saying they need money to this and that. since the claim was settled, but he insisted that I called my insurance company and see if they can give them money because they used the money he got from there to pay the car insurance (worth about 5 grand) talked to mom because I agree with his insurance and said that their sounds shady. she calls the insurance company and said DONT give you a dime. sure is do it all again, no better than you. explained numerous times and a week later my mother calls me at work and says gieco called and my friend are suing. said she has a lawyer. he is suing for personal injuries! told me about but do not bother me much. it is definitely not deserves and foremost be in perfect health. in the accident if you want to get technical I took all the hits. I know, my insurance company will not.'s not fair that compensation for any damage that does not exist. What will happen?'s what you have a chance. opened the claim is $ 25,000 or more. this kid goes on a bender and party every weekend and this is the way it is? any input is appreciated. thank you again ..

  • Can I "sue" the car insurance company (CA)?

    I was a victim of a spin-out accident . My car was totaled because the tire center of other pilots were bald and had no traction in the rain (this is what the police told me ) . We did not suffer serious injuries and I know that my insurance company will only give me what our car is worth today , but what about the rest ? We gotta get out of our pocket to pay for another car (the car was originally $ 30k ) when the accident was due to negligence ? So I can claim / request / demand in California your insurance company to pay the difference between what my insurance gives me and the new car you bought ? If so , how I can do this and what I need to know to give me bargaining power ?

  • How much should I expect for an auto accident settlement? Tips to increase this?

    Some details: The accident happened a little over 2 yrs ago. I was not at fault - it was an elderly woman who took out 3 other vehicles. I have had upper neck pain (base of skull) and horrible evening headaches since the accident. I went through about 4 months of physical therapy and on and off chiropractic work. (I don't know the medical costs although I would guess around $3000? - bills have all been covered by the insurance company) The headaches aren't gone, but are infrequent enough that my own insurance could cover the chiropractic visits from here out. My car has already been totaled and I received a lowball NADA value for it. Any tips for negotiating my settlement? Do they really have a formula based on medical bills? What factors play into my final settlement amount? Keywords? Not interested in a lawyer and their 30-40% cut!

  • My 17 yr old was involved in a fatality crash. must my insurance co defend me in a civil case?

    the accident involving my daughter and they got their car bycylist . seems she is not a crime CITIED than failure to yield. The family of the victims has been friendly, but also hired a personal injury lawyer . I think the insurance company is willing to pay the maximum liability already , but I was advised that it will probably be insufficient. even though you are paying the full amount will still defend liability if a civil case is presented ?

  • What can I do? Accident, Insurance Help.?

    I was in a minor accident, i was driving, a motorcycle tried to cut me off but ended up hitting my left front of the car. no report was done, i have an officer who witnessed when the motorcyclist admitted guilt. The next day i called the motorcyclist, he only wanted to pay for half damages. Took it to the insurance. other driver brought in lawyer, insurance tried calling him, but no response. We both have the same insurance in the end the insurance told me that there was nothing they could do, and i have to repair for my own damages. Meanwhile, the other driver is pinning the guilt at me, and falsely claiming injuries at the last minute. The insurance said they would represent me, and i wouldn't have to worry about that. The only option i have is to take it to court, but i have no time for that, and no lawyer for it. But is there any way that i can get the insurance to make the other guy pay for the damages he caused although he has a lawyer? The insurance has "closed the case" but had claimed me "not guilty" on my side, the other party never claimed and lagged it. The insurance does not communicate with me about my case, at all. i feel that because the other driver has the same insurance as I do, the insurance is Lagging it on purpose as to let time pass by and not lose money. It has ben two months BTW. and i have not been helped whatsoever. And apparently although i have a witness to the admittance of guilt from the other driver, according to the insurance..they dont care about that type of witness, only those who saw the accident, another question is it that although i have an officer who was there when the other driver confessed it taken as if i have no evidence whatsoever when the other party is just hearsay, unlike the other driver, i have someone of trust that can verify his guilt.

  • I was hit by car how much should i expect?

    I'm 24yrs old and I was hit by a car that drove into a convenience store scooping me up and driving me through 5 wine racks before coming to a stop 5 feet from the beer cooler in the back. I have video tapes and witness reports on all of this as well as the drivers insurance information. I went to the hospital with a twisted knee, scrapes, and deep lower leg contusions. I have to where a knee immobilizer for 6 weeks while I go see an orthopedic surgeon. This injury has permitted me from working and my time playing hockey is put on hold when playoffs are about to begin. I am currently talking to a lawyer but was curious how much one might expect from this type of accident.

  • Do I qualify for personal injury protection?

    I was a passenger in a single car accident. There were three of us. Myself and the supposed driver were knocked out of conscience during the impact. The owner of the car walked away. The owner currently has a broad form of insurance on his license. The driver had no insurance. I am going to be receiving large medical bills as I was hauled away in an ambulance and put through cat scans and what not in the trauma center. One lawyer office said there is no hope for getting my medical expenses covered...... does anyone know if this is true? I am in Washington State.

  • Bumped into another car and now other party is claiming injuries?

    Ok . So I ran into the back of someone's car yesterday. The car was very old paint aging. I was making a right turn and for some stupid reason I thought I was making a turn and continues to drive through what I put my foot on the gas pedal and ran with it . I say stumbled upon it because I was at a stop before the hit , so it could not have gone any faster than 5 mph . I have yet to blame. I know. My motherboard is slightly bent and has some scratches on his record , but absolutely no dents either car. I talked to my insurance today and tell me that the other party is saying that I was amazed by injuries . My car does not have literally not a scratch. I do not even think I hit anything . Even your car perfectly. My motherboard is a little bent and that was it . My licensee plastic or even break the impact . How can she claim injury ? I have pictures too . Tomorrow I take the car to a repair shop for my insurance can take a picture of them and assess their claim. They said it 's for my own protection against claims from injuries . She even has a case beyond that I have to pay to fix their few scratches ? I'm willing to pay to paint your bumper from scratches , but I think it 's definitely trying to scam .
