Thank you so very much for your help. I wish you were in or could practice in Washington State. I apologize for not rating this sooner. We were actually in a telephone conference again with the aforementioned attorney when I received your reply.
1.) our attorney Did Not File a claim with a court of law. Only with the company itself. and the three years is past.
I have got so upset over this, I can't talk, I am stuttering now.
Verbal Speech has been the hardest item to 'recover' Typing is much better think in a linear fashion. But I've never stuttered before in my life, and taught Comp Sci at a post secondary level. So it's not like I"m unused to speaking to strangers, or large groups of people.
lolol, stress is such an odd emotion.
We have contacted a few places, but due to the dates/non court claim filed, No One Will Take the Case. At least currently I've been turned down twice. Both from Firms which dealt specifically with Brain Injuries/Accident. I cannot believe this man was even on the MS "experts who give employee's discounts" paper. I know they aren't liable for that. But I feel them, or washington state someone should be. We finally got him to run a background check on her *this* year. (just three months ago) and it showed she'd had MANY tickets for driving without a license or insurance.
*If* the state requires insurance. Should not they be *required* to ensure or responsible for the drivers who do not have it? If it wasn't required by the state, then I could understand. But Since it is required by the state, I don't see why they are not partially liable anyway, especially in-light of her diving history.
It is also my position that 1.) we were paying for MY insurance, yes, through my husbands work, but still MY portion we paid for. Over 700.00 per month. I even had death and dismemberment, unfortunately not disability.
In addition to the 38,000 they are claiming in Erisa monies, We had a 5K Per Year Pre Tax Account, which they had billed for my teeth just 6 months before the accident. Durring the time my claim was in subrogation and we never even saw a bill for it, there was never a claim filed for our 5K per year. I had one surgery per year, for three years. In addition to the treatment for the brain injury.
Wouldn't they need to credit us at the very least for the 5K per year for three years. I don't know WHY they didn't bill it. They had with my teeth. I think it was a clerical mistake, someone just didn't followup as well as they should have. But that's not our fault. Is it reasonable from this standpoint to request that deduction. (our attorney won't even present it.)
And because they came down 8,000 on the EIRSA already they had to get "Microsofts approval" to come down that much.
Well, if they had to do that, doesn't that bring Microsoft into play a little bit here? ( that's who my husband worked for)
Microsoft NEVER disclosed to us about this clause in our Medical Insurance, even though Dmitri went to several training sessions about the insurance itself, where they went over the different policy options and which was ultimately better coverage. But NEVER did they mention this issue. Had they done that I would have had additional insurance. It's why I had 3 times the average for uninsured motorist, because I got hit in Alaska one time by a driver with no insurance, well, he did have insurance, but 1 of the VIN digits was off, so the insurance wouldn't cover it, and m insurance had to pick up on it, and I had minimal coverage and high deduction. Never again. I've always carried More than the requirement.
I checked the Washington State Bar, and our attorney does carry insurance, for what amounts who knows.
I don't know if I should have put these additional questions into this area or not, I am new to this system. please feel free to contact me . Can you do that? I've left you my blog address anyway :)
