I gave my Dr my work insurance info and just told them I tore it getting it of car. I had worked for them for 5 months before this incident. When I finally talked to them they non-chalantly encouraged me not to claim L&I, saying they would pay me 80 hrs every 2 weeks and when the medical bills... Read more »
Forget the formula. That's bogus. If you lost an eye would 3 x the medicals be enough? No way. If you had one ER but went in as trauma and the bill was 19,000 and no follow up after, do you think they'd pay 3x19?

Definitely not, and it is sometimes very damaging to your case to do so. Talk to a lawyer right away, before you give a statement to the other side. They are trained and skilled in obtaining statements from you that are subject to misinterpretation down the road.

Not necessarily. The other driver's insurance company or attorney can always claim that you were somehow negligent, and that contributed to the cause of the collision. If that's the case, then yes, your damages can be reduced proportionate to your responsibility for the crash.

Yes. Because while you may think the accident is "clear cut" even if they start out admitting fault they will try to get you to say small things so they can say you are partly to blame.
