I got some unsettling news today.
I got a call at just after 5pm from yet another adjustor from my auto insurance company. He called to tell me that he would now be handling my claim because there was an injury claim being made by one of the other drivers in my auto accident back in February. Evidently, that particular driver had a previous knee injury and is now claiming that the accident aggravated the injury. He's now decided "lawyer up" and make a claim.
This really hit one of my buttons. I was worried that something like this would happen... mostly because a review of my insurance coverage after the accident pointed out that our injury coverage is on the low side. Granted, it is too early know anything... and I did see this man stand up, wait around on his feet, and drive away from the scene of the accident without mentioning injury. Hopefully our lackluster level of coverage is up to the task.
In the meanwhile, I am told by the adjustor that this will likely take 6-9 months to settle. I pray that my nerves will settle down before then. I have been feeling like a prize idiot all over again this evening. I was driving around for the last week in my newly repaired car, hoping I had dodged this bullet. I guess not.
Our benefits are up for annual review next month before renewal for the coming year. We're getting more injury coverage.
