How Do I Recover Continuing Medical Bills After an Accident?
Motor Vehicles Accidents - August 31, 2015
My taxi was totalled. Insurance company paid for my vehicle, tax difference, loss of wages and loss of lease to my company. I recovered these myself even by going to court myself and fighting.
I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. I had severe pain in my neck, shoulder, head which subsided within hours. Nothing was found through X-rays.
After few months I had severe pain again. I informed other insurance comapny. I went to one physiotherapist. He gave me approx 20 sessions. I still have pain, some type of kink in my neck. I could not go for MRI although doctor suggested. I have all the documentation.
Now medical bills for approx $12K and pain and suffering to be recovered.
The other driver had basic insurance coverage. My taxi had liability coverage for $350K, as per city law. I am scared about my old age. What can I do?
