Your former attorney is correct, the at fault insurer is responsible for paying all of your wife's medical bills that were caused by the collision.
Merry Fountain is licensed to practice law in Indiana. She can be contacted at 1-888-242-HURT. This is not legal advice and it does not create an attorney/client relationship. It is legal education intended to provide general information about the matter within the question. If the question does not include important timeframes and facts the answer could change. Merry Fountain strongly advises the questioner to confer with an attorney in your state.
The first $10k of medical bills and lost wages would be paid by your insurance, even though you're not at fault. There may be a deductible or copay that you could recover from the at fault party, as well as any damages over the 10k threshold.
Whether the at fault party's insurance would pay depends on whether they have BI coverage. If not, you could possibly pursue a UM claim against your carrier. I would find out why your attorney dropped you and if they have already filed a lawsuit, and then go find another personal injury attorney to help you out.
Best of luck to you.
