Post: CO insurance settlement
Posted by Injured's mom on 3/19/04
My daughter was exposed to carbon monoxide while staying at a Holiday Inn.
She was treated very roughly at first by the staff, and when they tried to
contact the hotel management about felling ill in their room they were told
they probably drunk or using drugs. After calling thie parent's and being told
to go the emergency room, the hotel did an about face and gave them comps.
The hotel's insurance company paid most of my daughter's medical bills, but
they stopped paying them at thier cap which left my daughter with deliquent
medical bills that are now on her credit history. The insurance company did
not inform us that they had a dollar cap on medical treatment until I was
contacted by a collection company for the hospital. They are now offering my
daughter $1500 to close out the case. As far as we know, neither girl suffered
any effects from the exposure, but my daughter's blod gas was very high
initally. Should we accept the $1500 or should we pursue this further?
