Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I'd be happy to answer your question.
Are you there?
I see you have entered the chat. I don't see a response, but I need to know whether you were working for an employer at the time of the wreck?
Workers compensation only applies to employees that are injured while on the job. So I'm afraid that there isn't any coverage for you there.
You need to make sure you file claims under your Uninsured Motorist insurance for the medical bills
Also, you need to check to make sure you file a Personal Injury Protection claim with your insurance company as well.
my passenger is active duty military how does this work out for them...they had an xray but it showed no injuries
Same deal. If he wasn't on the job while in the vehicle and driving for his employer, no workers compensation.
However, your insurance policy should cover the injured passengers medical bills too.
Any indication why the insurance company is taking so long to settle the claim?
Seems like an awful long time for them to sit on it.
Are you still there?
It seems you might have stepped away. I'm going to switch this over to Q&A format. You can still respond to me and I can still answer further questions on this topic, it simply will be in a different format.
