After accident I was transported to emergency room via ambulance for head & neck injury. Other parties insurance company(GEICO) accepted full liability for the claim after seeing police report. They totaled out my vehicle and made a fair offer to me. I sent them my title and am awaiting my vehicle check. I've been playing phone tag with the adjusters but other than that, they have been pretty good at keeping me in a rental car (at least until my total loss check comes in the mail.) Are they obligated to keep in rental until I receive this check or after? My insurance(esurance) had mentioned a medical settlement.. I do not want a long drawn out case, but I feel I am entitled to injury damages and time off work, as well as the fact I need a new car now. What should I do from this point?* I have only been in contact with the other person's insurer for the total loss of my car, not for anything medical. I know my insurance deals with my medical, and my medical adjuster sent me paperwork about a medical claim that I have not sent back (as I did not want to sign anything without advice). I have sought out treatment for my injuries already (headaches, neck pain..). I think I should contact and attorney but was unsure if I really "had a case".
