While in a friends car her boyfriend accidentally backed up over my girlfriends foot. he offered her a visit to his podiatrist, "at 1 am", or the next day, though he refused to pay the copay. he refused to pay the copay for an urgent care or emergency room visit as well. at the time the injury didnt look too bad, she was walking on it, but so was i after i broke my ankle as well at a separate time. the next day it began to swell and bruise profusely. when asked for insurance information the driver refused to exhibit the information saying, "it doesnt cover those kind of accidents", they're, the boyfriend and the girlfriend, are refusing to compensate in any way for the injury, not so much as an apology. any suggestions?is time a factor in this? i really dont want to file a police report, but if i have to what should i say? i understand it is my girlfriends problem and she should be taking the steps necessary i just wanted to take the initiative to point her in the rite direction, shes a full time student and worker and has no time to deal with this. she has health insurance but im sure shell need money for physical therapy or medications if need be.
