Should I find a lawyer?

I was in a car accident in January. The accident was the other driver's fault. This whole time, the insurance agency has been giving us the run around. They gave us $3800 to fix my car but it took them 3 weeks to do so because they couldn't get a hold of their client (who was arrested and I told them that). Now the chiropractor or me can't get a hold of them for payment. I was originally going to ask for a small amount for pain and suffering but with them giving me the run around and not owning up to their mistake and acknowledging the pain I've been having, I want more. I didn't want a lawyer originally because this was my first time with this kind of accident and I was naive in thinking that it would be a simple thing. Is this the time to find a lawyer or is it too late?

Bellevue Accident Attorney Answer:

The at fault driver's insurance will not pay for your medical bills up front. However, they will be part of your overall bodily injury claim in addition to money for general damages or for such things as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, etc.

If you have PIP or medical payments coverage with your own car insurance, you should have opened this claim and they would pay for the medical bills and then seek reimburesment from the other insurance later.

If you are still injured, then you need to continue with treatment. Usually, a chiropractor is willing to work with you if you do not have medical coverage and hold the bill until the case is settled and then gets paid at the end just like the attorney on a contigency fee agreement.

You should contact a local personal injury attorney to discuss further. In Washington call 425-289-1990 or 1-800-636-3676
