  • I was injured in an auto ax. Found an orthopedic surgeon who advertised that he accepted PIP insurance. Now his office tells me

    that they only accept it for 2 visits. Neither the advertisement nor the paper work mention this. Now, he says that I owe and must pay the balance, because he doesn't accept partial payment. If I want to continue with him I must pay upfront $500 ...

    Coby’s Answer

    Most PIP insurance coverages are only $2,500.00. Unfortunately this will not pay for very much in the way of medical care. If there was some sort of misunderstanding then maybe you have a face to face meeting with the doctor about the terms of your agreement with his office. If the auto accident was not your fault then you should consult with a personal injury attorney about your damages which would include reasonable medical care. Most personal injury attorney's do not charge for the initial consultation.

  • I was rear ended while driving my moms car , taking my kids to school. I am not on her insurance and do not have a DL ,

    can I still be covered?? The guy is trying to say it was my fault. The police only took a statement from him, didn't really even bother to come over and talk to me.

    Coby’s Answer

    Generally if you were rear-ended the rear-ending driver has a duty to keep a safe distance from your vehicle. Unless there is some sort of intervening act like you making an unsafe lane change, etc. The fact that you do have a DL is not a fatal flaw in the case but it is a problem. You need to get one. Likewise if injured you need to seek medical care. You should have a personal injury attorney look at the facts for you to give you a better evaluation.

    Coby’s Answer

    I am very sorry for your loss. You have been provided with good advice from previous answers. A question you need to get the answer for. Was your mother taking Xarelto, as a blood thinner, at the time or immediately prior to her pulmonary embolism. If so then you need to consult with an attorney who has experience in pharmaceutical litigation.

    It's hard to determine based on this short set of facts. There are lots of factors to consider. The speed of the other car for example. Best to turn it over to your insurance company and let them investigate it.
