My husband was rear-ended and the other driver had no insurance. Our car wasn't damaged (a tiny scuff mark on the bumper, got to love a Saturn), but they took my husband to the ER because he had tingling and pain down his neck and back. He missed one day of work and 4 hours of mandatory overtime, but returned to work the following day. He was sore for several days, but took a muscle relaxer at night and kept working.
Our insurance said that our uninsured coverage only covers the medical bills, but not the missed wages.
Does anyone know if the insurance company is jerking us around, or if they usually don't pay missed wages? If they don't how does he recover his wages? We are on a tight budget, and I don't think it's fair that we go without when it wasn't his fault.
