Well sue me...update 3/18

 Remember the accident my ds got into back in Sept?  Well, looks like one of the people in the accident wants him to pay medical bills.  Doesn't that just suck big hairy donkey balls?!?!

Anyone have any experience with this type of thing?  They have a lawyer and that is who sent the letter I believe.  I'll have to look again.  We are calling our insurance in the morning.  I sure hope this isn't a long list of bills headed his way :(
Wish us luck!

 

Update: Dh called and USAA knew about the letter sent to us and they are taking care of everything.  They usually do just handle it without even contacting us most times.  I'm so happy that he's not going to have to pay out of his little wallet.  I do hope that the people involved in the accident aren't suffering in pain though :( I do worry about that because no amount of money can fix that.

Ewww.....Yuck! How bad was the accident? Your insurance should cover it, right? Hopefully they can ease your mind tomorrow. Good luck!

 The summons should have the vehicle owner (hubby and/or you) and your insurance company listed as the Respondents.  Which means that your insurance company should also receive a copy of the claim that was filed.  So, if you don't call them, you will hear from them regarding this.

 It was bad but I know it could have been worse.  I posted it back in Sept/Oct.
The insurance will only cover up to $25,000 I think but dh is calling tomorrow to see how we shoud proceed with this.
Thanks!

 If we fight though it could be more costly?  Ugh, I've never had to deal with this type of thing so who knows :/  I mean they have been dealing with it for us but this is new and came directly to us.  Our insurance has already gone up because of it.  They said we can't even take the totalled car off the insurance until it's all settled!

 I'm not really sure that we are actually being "sued" as yet though. It's so confusing to me.  It is labeled as a Lien?

I'm sorry girl. I have no idea what to do except talk to the insurance Co and maybe get a consult from a lawyer to find out what options you have. :(
