Today I had a meeting with the lawyer. I arrived just after 10 am, only to find out my appointment was at 1 pm! Duh. I had some time to kill, so I mailed all of our Christmas card as well as some items for work, visited a friend whose twin boys are in the NICU (please keep them in your thoughts), had lunch with Skip and then headed BACK to the lawyer.
The lawyer is really great. It’s a woman, and she was very easy to talk to, very thorough and explained everything to me really well. She said the first thing she would be doing is sending a letter of representation to the opposing insurance and demand the immediate reimbursement of my out-of-pocket expenses for car rental and my deductible. Then she said for me to track my mileage and stuff and she will contact me in about 3 months as we won’t start going for medical costs and “pain and suffering” until I am completely healed. It is such a relief to know I don’t have to deal with the stupid dink from the opposing insurance any more!
Even better, when I got home, there was a check for $801 from the opposing insurance, which is almost all of what I am entitled for the rental and deductible (they still owe me $35 and some change for that).
Bad news is (unrelated to that accident) the Pacifica is supposed to be in the shop until January 2nd! That’s a long time to be without her (I’ve just decided the Pacifa is a her… guess she needs a name now).
That’s pretty much it for today.
Victoria, if you’re reading, please email me that code for the pink dragon if you truly won’t use it! :)
