Q: Do I have grounds to dispute this insurance?
I was recently in a minor vehicle collision. Minimal damage to the vehicles. I ended up with three dislocated ribs. Police report clearly states that the other driver was at fault. The agent for the other driver called me and disputed the dislocated ribs stating, “Did you diagnose yourself?” She further stated she just doesn’t see how it is possible and asked why I did not go to an ER.
She asked who referred me to a chiropractor. I explained that when my 4’11”, 95 lbs, 15 yr old daughter hugged me, it nearly took my breathe away. That is when I knew something was very wrong with my body and needed evaluations.
The agent offered a set $ amount for my chiropractor’s bill without asking for any information regarding records, treatment plan or estimated bill, and that I need to sign off on this. The driver posted on Facebook that I am a POS person.
Do I have any rights to dispute the inappropriate way I was addressed and accusations that I was not actually hurt?
A: An Oklahoma attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. This is something that attorneys in the Libel/Slander category would know better than car accident attorneys. There's no guarantee all questions are picked up, but you could repost in that category. Good luck
