    Chong’s Answer

    i'm sorry to hear that you are having a such a terrible experience with your auto accidetn. It appears you would be best served by hiring a car accident attorney. The defense attorney and the insurance company s/he represents know that you will have difficulty doing this on your own and are playing games with you. If you hire an attorney they will know that you are serious about this and will stop trying to outsmart you.

    Chong’s Answer

    You don't want to settle with Geico at this point. As you've mentioned you haven't even started PT or massage. Geico is trying to forever prevent you from coming after their insured and them by settling now. You should contact a car accident and injury attorney and meet with them for a free initial consultation. Nothing good can come out of settling with Geico at this point.

    Chong’s Answer

    Depending on the circumstance, your attorney can reduce or waive your medical bills. Your attorney should give you a better idea of when to expect your check. As far as interests being charged, it is normal for the medical providers to charge interest.

    Chong’s Answer

    If you have an attorney who helped you in settling your claim, you should have the attorney contact your medical providers to lower the medical bills. If not, you are encouraged to contact the medical provider's office and discuss lowering the lien amount. Either way you will be responsible for all medical bills, which unfortunately could include interests. You should read the contract you signed with the medical providers office on your initial visit to see whether that is the case.

    Chong’s Answer

    I am sorry to hear about your news. First, you should get medical treatment immediately. Second, you most likely will get medicals paid through Shuttle Express's PIP. Bicyclist and pedestrians are covered under the PIP from the car who hit you. Finally, you should contact an auto accident and injury attorney for a free consultation.

    First, you should seek medical attention to make sure everyone is fine and to receive instructions on how to proceed with your injury. Then you should consult with an experienced auto accident and injury attorney for a free consultation. You should hire the attorney who you and your girlfriend will be comfortable working with for up to the next three years or longer.

    Chong’s Answer

    If you were at fault, you do not want to contact the other driver. You should not contact the other driver. You want to say a little as possible to protect you. Instead, you are doing the right thing by deciding to contact your insurance company.

    Chong’s Answer

    You should not be posting your personal information online where the other people involved or their insurance company can view your information. Secondly, if you haven't done so already, you should contact your insurance company and open a claim with your insurance company if there were any injuries or damages to the people and vehicles involved.

    Chong’s Answer

    Yes, you definitely want to contact a car accident injury attorney near you. Additionally, you want to go see a doctor about your injury. You don't want to wait too long to get medical attention because your conditions could worsen and the insurance company may not view your injuries as serious the longer you wait to see a doctor.
