Common Questions After a Car Wreck
- What am I going to do about something to drive?
- Who will pay my medical bills?
- Why is the adjuster I spoke with not being helpful?
- How much compensation will I get?
This depends upon your insurance policy. You may be able to have a rental car provided to you through your policy. At Morgan Collins and Yeast, as soon as we are able to identify the insurance company for the at-fault party, we contact them to demand that they provide you with a rental car until your vehicle can be repaired or replaced.
In Kentucky, the insurance carrier for the automobile you occupy at the time of the wreck is responsible for a portion of your medical bills, usually up to $10,000. If you have health insurance, Medicaid or Medicare, they may pay your medical expenses. If they do, they will seek reimbursement from any money that you may ultimately recover from the at-fault party. At Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer, we assist our clients with obtaining the benefits owed to them by their insurance company.
The adjuster does not work for you. Adjusters work for the insurance companies. And the insurance companies will do everything they can to pay you as little as possible. If you’re having trouble dealing with an insurance adjuster, a lawyer can help you. After a car wreck, let one of our personal injury attorneys deal with the adjuster and the insurance company so you can focus on getting better.
There is no easy answer to this question. Many factors including the severity of your injuries, the amount of medical expenses and lost wages, as well as the amount of available insurance coverage determine the amount of compensation you may receive.
If you’re injured in car wreck, you have the right to receive compensation for damages to your vehicle, your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills and any permanent injuries resulting from your wreck.
