Q: Driving in my lane and a bicycle is next to me no bike lane and he states my truck mirror hit his elbow. No cops or ins.
Were called. he said he was ok sore elbow I game him my number offered to call cops and ins he said no. Guy calls later that day saying he went to the er and we talked several times that day checking up on him. He called the next day saying he would talk with him family about what to do next and give me a call. Over a month later he calls saying he wants me to pay his er bill of 1200 and missed work of 650 any suggestions on what to do?
A: This sounds like a scam to me. The guy has absolutely no proof that you hit him or caused any injury. I suggest that you should contact your insurance and put them into contact with him. You should have done this from the beginning.
Call your insurance company and let them handle it. They will get to the bottom of it. Best of luck to you.
