Q. 3 car bumper to bumper accident on interstate. No traffic. I was the 3rd vehicle. Now I’m being sued. How liable am I?
A: The first thing you need to do is take a deep breath, everything is going to be fine. Second, deliver the summons and the complaint to your liability insurance company immediately. The insurance company has a contractual obligation to defend you and to indemnify you. (This means pay any judgment that might be entered against you up to the limit of your liability coverage). The complaint may state "permanent injury" but the the extent of the claimant's injury will be determined through through the discovery process of your law suit. The discovery process is an information sharing process. So the injured party has to provide all their medical records related to the injury so your insurance company can assess it. The injured party may also have to share medical records of previous injuries to the part of the body they claim was injured in the collision. The claimant may be entitled to be compensated for those injuries caused by the collision, but no more. I say may be entitled to be compensated because the claimant has to prove that your actions were negligent and were a responsible cause of the collision in order to be compensated. If you were speeding, this will be evidence of negligence on your part. Another question, which might affect the case is how much distance you kept between your car and the other cars. Think of the 2 second rule you learned in drivers ed. You do not say why the first car slammed on her brakes. If it was for stopped traffic that may be reasonable. If it was just to scare the kids, that would not be reasonable and the first driver might have fault for the crash assigned to her. Ask the attorney assigned to your case by the insurance company all the questions you have. That is your right. It should make you feel less anxious.
Q. Do I need to repay Medicare for a trip and fall hospital bill that a homeowners insurance has offered to partially pay?
A: Because you are receiving money as a result of an injury claim, the short answer is yes, you are required to repay Medicare. BUT, because of write downs you will not have to pay as much as you think. Medicare writes down medical bills significantly. So, even though the amount billed is $8,500.00, the amount Medicare paid will likely be a great deal less. So the amount you have to repay Medicare will be no more than what Medicare pays. The hospital is bound to take the Medicare payment as payment in full and so will not come to you for the balance. If you do not pay Medicare, Medicare can withhold payment on future medical bills until the amount it is owed is covered. Source: John P.
