There are many scenarios where you may not be in a motor vehicle, but you have a car insurance claim to deal with. One of the most common is a pedestrian (walking or on a bike) being struck by a vehicle. According to the Athens Banner-Herald, a woman riding her bicycle was struck by a car early Friday morning. We recently had a client with a very similar injury and we resolved her insurance claim for her.
Our client was riding her bicycle in the Athens area when she was unfortunately hit by a vehicle. She had a broken left wrist as a result of the accident, which required multiple surgeries. Fortunately for our client, she had medical payments coverage through her car insurance carrier. Medical payments coverage pays for medical bills stemming from a car accident. Our client was able to use this coverage to pay all her medical bills in full with only a few small bills remaining at the time of settlement. Her health insurance filed a subrogation claim for a portion of what they paid because of this accident. We were able to get this bill reduced for our client as well.
Because of the insurance coverage from the at-fault party, our client was able to walk away with a significant settlement in addition to having all bills paid in full. This client was able to recover and attend all her doctor’s appointments without having to worry about bills or dealing with the insurance companies. When dealing with a trauma such as this accident, it’s important to focus on recovery and getting back to work, which is an advantage of hiring an attorney.
