A couple of months ago I was hit by a drunk driver and on Friday I spoke with the case manager for my lawyer , they stated that the at fault driver's insurance policy was going to pay out $ 100 , 000 ( max payout via their policy ) . I'm having back surgery for the injuries I suffered and I have occurred a good amount of medical fees to date already . I know my insurance will cover the first $ 10 , 000 ( no fault state ) but I was wondering if the remaining medical expenses will come out of the $ 100 , 000 or if they are paid out separate by his and / or my insurance company . I wasn't able to call my lawyer's office back in time after I thought about it so any insight I could get would be helpful . Zigging At fault driver was arrested for DUI and leaving the scene both w / property damage , blew 1 . 90I don't know if it helps but the injuries I suffered due to the accident are 2 bulging discs and 3 herniated discs. The herniated and bulging discs have the following issues: annular tear, mild spinal canal stenosis, indents the thecal sack, and bilateral IVF narrowing. The worst one has all those plus it's out 6-7mm, effacement of the right S1 nerve root, and the disc material is migrating upwards.
