Many motorists have inadequate car insurance coverage

Don't opt for lowest liability insurance

The insurance protection for our cars is important because, under our legal system, we are responsible for damages we cause to other people or property in an accident if we are found negligent.

As an attorney handling claims for injured people, I often find that people who have been driving for years have mistaken ideas about their insurance coverage.

Also, the repeal of Georgia's no-fault automobile insurance laws has brought about changes in our car policy's coverages which can be confusing.

Some basic automobile insurance coverages which

are available are bodily injury and property damage (called liability coverage), excess medical payments, uninsured-underinsured motorist and collision.

Settling the Catastrophic Workers' Compensation Claim

Medicare and the Set-Aside Trust

The Set-Aside Trust is now being used in settlement of catastrophic workers' compensation cases to satisfy Medicare concerns relating to responsibility for future medical expenses arising out of the employee's job injury. Employees in such cases no longer have the luxury of setting their claims for the maximum value including future medical expenses, pocketing the entire settlement, and then applying for SSDI disability which includes Medicare in order to pay for future medical needs arising

out of the workers' compensation injury.

In early 2001, rumors began circulating that Medicare was considering filing claims for reimbursement against an insurance carrier to determine whether medical expenses of former workers whose workers' compensation cases had settled were later paid under SSDI disability Medicare. The basis for the claims by Medicare was 42 CFR 411.46 which requires certain workers' compensation settlements to adequately consider Medicare's interests.
