Claim with the auto insurance company

Asked over 3 years ago - Phoenix, AZ

I was a pedestrian hit by a car, I filled a claim with the auto insurance, now whats next, what kind of questions should I expect from my insurance adjuster apart from the accident details.
If the fault is partly mine, and the auto insurance covers only a part of my bills,
will my health insurance cover the remaining part. I have aetna student health insurance and this is a clause under exclusions-
Expenses for injuries sustained as the result of a motor vehicle accident, to the extent that benefits are payable under other valid and collectible insurance, whether or not claim is made for such benefits. The Policy will only pay for those losses, which are not payable under the automobile medical payment insurance Policy

    Answered . You really should hire a lawyer to represent you. Do not talk with an insurance adjuster or investigator before you consult with an experienced attorney. There may be coverage available to pay for your medical bills (in part) that are due whether or not you were at fault or partly at fault. You cannot rely on the insurance adjuster to advise you. He or she is not "your adjuster". They work for the insurance company. Consult an experienced lawyer in your area now. Don't wait.

    Answered . Do not be fooled by the insurance company that you do not need a lawyer. Recoveries on consistently larger when an attorney is involved. Contact a local personal injury attorney before proceeding.

    I wish you the best of luck.

    Answered . The other contributors are correct. You almost certainly cannot know what the insurance company knows. It is the rare situation where someone should not have a professional on their side. Good luck.
