Hey Amethyst I am glad no one is seriously hurt!
My wife has been in 3 accidents in one year all of them rearends two of them within 3 weeks of one another (this happened about 5 years ago), It is
like she had a big HIT ME
sticker on the back of her car, nothing real bad has happened thankfully, only thing she really complains about is
her lower back hurting, your right about the insurance companies though, what a pain in the arse to deal with!!
The last accident took about 3 years to settle, she had to go not only to our insurance companies "recommended doctor" but to the other companies
"recommended doctor" and if they both disagreed on the prognosis it would drag on longer so she could get more opinions on what was wrong with her,
more x-rays, and in the mean time go to a chiropractor and try to fix the missalignment of her spine so she was not in constant pain everyday,
Thankfully they finally settled with my wife recieving $16,000, all of her chiropractic care payed for a year, and a physical trainer at a gym of her
choice for a year.
All is good now, the chiropractic care helped a bunch, she hardly complains about her back anymore, but having to deal with insurance companies almost
isn't even worth it, your own company seems to be against you, hope we never have to go through something like that again!
I hope your fight is a quick one with the insurance scampanies, but be ready to fight it out for a while too, and don't give in either because
problems could arise in the future with you or your child. Good luck.
