So you’ve been in an accident? A personal injury case can involve being in a motor vehicle accident, having a slip and fall, or even being injured by someone or something. Whether it is your fault or another’s, you have rights in this state. Depending on your type of injury, you likely will have reported the injury to an insurance agent, had a police report and / or you have had some type of doctor’s visit. Often there is a claim number for your injury and you have contact information for the responsible person and / or your insurance company.
Most policies have coverage for injured parties called “Med Pay” up to a certain amount, depending on the policy, to help them get care that they need for their physical injuries without having to pay out of pocket. Then once that coverage is exhausted, if you still require more care, you may need to use your health insurance, which will be reimbursed by the at fault at the time of settlement of your case, in a process called subrogation. Sometimes you will need to consult with an attorney when you are having difficulty with the insurance company. Sometimes you won’t. It is important to remember that the at fault insurance company has one job, to settle the case as quickly as possible for the least amount of money. It is important to focus on your healing and make decisions based on that, with your doctor’s advice and by thinking in terms of your best interests, not by being pressured from an insurance company.
