When more than one automobile is involved, the case gets a little more complicated. Two insurance providers can have the same priority. For example, if a pedestrian is caught between two vehicles, both of which are insured by their owners, both of those insurance companies will have to pay.

How much each company pays is up to the court. After one insurance provider pays for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other no-fault benefits, it can ask the court to order “partial recoupment.” That means the judge can spread out the money between each company on the same level of priority.

This won’t affect how much money you should receive. But it could affect where that money comes from. No matter how many insurance providers are at the table, your benefits will be based on your injuries and expenses. Caps on your claims won’t change just because more than one vehicle is involved.

After a pedestrian accident or bicycle accident, it may be hard to know where to file your no-fault insurance claim. The auto accident attorneys at Christensen Law will help you sort through your options and file claims and lawsuits against the right priority insurance company.
