I was injured in a car accident in 2016 that was not my fault. I contacted the other drivers insurance right away and I informed them of the damage as well as my injuries and they said they would take care of it.They paid to fix my vehicle and were paying my medical bills and medication. After about a year they wanted to settle,and because of my continued medical treatment, I wanted to speak to counsel first.I retained a lawyer who's firm only dealt with these kind of cases.The lawyer wanted all future bills given to him and he would see they were taken care of.I kept in touch with his office by phone and every month dropped off my bills.I had asked several times how the case was going and I was always told it was progressing.After about another year I started receiving collection notices for my bills and was not being reimbursed for my meds.I asked why nothing was being done and was told to find different counsel!With 3 mos. left I retained another firm and after they sorted everything out the statute was up.Now I'm being sued for the bills plus I'm out alot of money for meds,expenses,ect.I need a good lawyer to help me fix this and soon.
Probably best to google that for your area and call around. That is a very specific practice and very few firms handle it, but you should be able to find someone.
