My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Florida
My wife was in an accident back in March where she was in a car accident where she was rear ended. The lady who hit her was at fault and was cited a reckless driving ticket by the state trooper. Both parties were cited ticket for not having insurance information as well. My wife was driving my parents car at the time while her car was in the shop for repairs.
At the time, my wife was 8 months pregnant, after the accident, we decided to take her to the local hospital to have her looked over because she started experiencing pain a few hours after the accident. The hospital kept her for 2 nights to monitor her and our daughter.
During the hospital stay, I went ahead and reported the accident to our insurance, Geico, and my parents car insurance, which was Progressive. From the driver information exchange, the other driver also claimed to have Progressive. But when I called Progressive to make the claim, they informed me that the policy number I provided for the other driver was no longer valid, the account have not been with them for a long time.
After hearing that we called for an attorney. The attorney immediately ordered my wife to have herself looked at by a chiropractor and also a neurologist.
Geico refused to pay for the medical bills for whatever reason, and now we have thousands mount up from the hospital stay and also the chiropractor office and the neurologist. The car was totalled, with 4 thousand dollars of damage and a bent frame, the car only had liability, so it wasn't covered nor did it have uninsured driver insurance.
From what I heard from the lawyer we had, they said that the driver who hit my wife shows no insurance record with the DMV.
I just received a letter today from that lawyer and they informed my wife that they will no longer represent her. With all the medical bills continue to come and we are not financially able to pay them, is there anything else we could do?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
