Not only did Sam’s attorney not submit her bills, but he also encouraged her to only seek medical attention from physicians he referred her to. (Which she now knows are his college buddies.) Her attorney says the personal injury protection coverage didn’t apply to her. The state where the accident occurred doesn’t recognize the coverage but something similar. The car insurance company wouldn’t correspond with Sam because she has an attorney. Trusting her attorney Sam did everything she was told including submitting all medical bills to his office & letting him do his job. Now she has a tremendous amount of debit & she is not going to be able to use her car coverage or health insurance due to the lack of support and advice from her attorney.
