Returning to Nashville from a weekend in Atlanta with friends, Justin was behind the wheel of a rental car when a car in the lane next suddenly crossed over into his lane and crashed into him. The out-of-control vehicle then overcorrected and crashed into a second vehicle traveling in another lane. Justin sustained serious musculoskeletal injuries. Although at the scene of the accident the driver told Justin she was at fault, once she spoke to her insurance company, she changed her story and said Justin was to blame.
Injured Victim Is Denied by Insurance Company
Once the at-fault driver changed her story, her insurance company told Justin they weren’t going to pay for his car or his injuries. Justin was frustrated because his injuries required months of treatment. He was in a lot of pain, his car was totaled, and the at-fault driver wasn’t taking responsibility. The insurance company denied his accident claim, and then stopped talking to him. Insurance companies use lots of tactics to avoid paying claims. One tactic is to simply ignore you and hope you just go away.
