Are you still waiting for your claim to be accepted? If so, hire a personal injury lawyer to see what help you can get for your bills. If you have quickly discovered you are going to need extended medical treatment, like therapy, surgery, rehabilitation and more, you shouldn't have to pay for it.
If you didn't cause the accident isn't should be hard to get the compensation you need, depending on what information was given to the insurance company. The lawyer is going to look at and need the following things to see if you're still eligible for compensation.
The lawyer will go through the accident report to see if the other driver was cited and reported as the one who caused the accident. You will need this report to show you were the victim to follow through with the case. Generally, when you call the police after an accident, they are the ones to fill this out and send you a copy. If there are errors, your lawyer may be able to fight them.
You need the details of the insurance provider for the other person that was in the accident, and your auto insurance provider. The lawyer will call both companies to ask why the claim hasn't been handled, and to see if they are going to process it. Hearing from a lawyer can be enough to get them to process the claim, because they don't want to deal with a lawsuit.
Medical statements with the details of your injury, and documentation of the expenses you've had to pay are proof for your injury. This gives the lawyer and idea of how much money you've already had to put out because of the accident. The severity of the injury also affects the case. Has it prevented you from working, parenting, or doing other things? These details are important for your case.
