Two and a half years ago, I was rear ended by a delivery truck at 45mph, and sustained serious whiplash injury.
I went to see a chiropractor for about 6 months, then the driver at fault’s insurance (Progressive) refused to pay for my medical bills. I got an injury lawyer and have been fighting my case since.
Today, they finally decided to settle with me after 2.5 years without going to court (we went through mediation and deposition). In the end, they finally decided to pay for my medical bills and chiropractic bills after threatening to take me to court (BRING IT ON!)
What I don’t understand is why they wouldn’t settle with ME 2.5 years ago, they could have paid MUCH less (minus lawyer fees, mediator fees, their own lawyer fees, etc).
I just don’t understand. Anyways, I just wanted to share my experience and also vent a little bit on how messed up insurance companies are (esp when we pay so much in premiums and deductables!)!!!!!
