Do you carry medical payments coverage as part of your automobile insurance policy?

Many individuals do not know the answer to this question. Medical payments coverage, often referred to as med-pay, reimburses vehicle occupants for medical bills relating to injuries sustained in an accident, regardless of fault. It usually comes with coverage limits in such amounts as $1,000, $5,000 or $10,000. Med-pay will reimburse for reasonable and necessary medical expenses up to the coverage limit for each person in the vehicle. For example, if there is applicable med-pay coverage and you and a passenger are involved in an accident and incur medical bills, you may each submit those bills for reimbursement under the med-pay provision. This is extremely helpful to those with no health insurance, or carry health insurance with a high deductibles.

I got hurt at work - now what?

The Workers Compensation Acts provides specific instructions on what to do when you are injured on the job. Keep in mind how you report the accident to your employer is very important and may affect whether or not your claim is accepted or denied. Ledbetter & Titsworth provides free consultation and can advise you of your rights at no cost to you. Below is the specific statute that states how you are to provide notice and what that notice is to contain.

Should I give a recorded statement?

The short answer is not without speaking with an attorney first. In any injury claim, a recorded statement is large part of what makes an insurance company accept or deny the claim. The most innocent of statements can allow the insurance company to deny responsibility. As the statement is recorded, there is no way to "un-do" these statements. The insurance company is trained to gear your responses to detrimental answers. Before you speak to an insurance adjuster, hand over written documents, or make statements to the police, you should always talk to an attorney first. Remember it does not cost anything to contact us for a free consultation. It may make a difference in whether your claim is accepted or denied. Contact us.
