Catastrophic Injuries and Auto Insurance Coverage.

One of the frustrating problems I face with respect to getting a recovery for my clients is insufficient insurance coverage limits. The mandatory minimum coverage limits in Illinois require every automobile to carry liability insurance with a minimum of Twenty thousand dollars per occurrence and forty thousand dollars total. That means that for any given occurrence the most such a policy would pay out is $20,000. Twenty thousand dollars isn't a lot of coverage. One could exhaust that much coverage with one night in a hospital.

Dura Ace Wheelset Recall.

Some Shimano Dura Ace wheel sets (model number WH-7850 C24CL, sold from April to August of 2008) have been recalled. Apparently the plugs used in the spoke holes can cause flats. As we all know, a flat at an inopportune time could potentially be very dangerous.

What do I do if my claim is denied? Small claims.

If you are involved in an accident and you have any medical treatment I strongly suggest you consult an attorney before talking to the insurance company. In the event that you only have a claim for the damage to your bicycle it may be fine to handle your own property damage claim. You can refer to my previous blog about how to file your claim with the insurance company.

What if the insurance company denies your claim? Small claims.
