The term double dipping is often misconstrued in the context of insurance claims.  An example is if you're a passenger involved in an automobile accident and you’ve incurred $10,000 worth of medical expenses, and the insurance company of the other driver pays for your medical expenses, then you cannot go back and file a claim for the same $10,000 medical expenses to the driver of your vehicle because those have already been paid.  You still have the right to go to both insurance companies and ask them to pay for things that are non-economic damages such as pain-and-suffering and mental anguish.  If you’re a passenger who has been involved in an auto or truck accident, and need help filing your bodily injury claim, then call us today for your free consultation.
