Legal Question

Asked on: 9/06/13, 1:45 pm

Back in April I got assaulted, and as a result had to be brought to the hospital by ambulance and had to have a lot of tests done. As a result I couldn't work or even walk for two weeks.

Anyway, she plead guilty end of July, and is getting probation. Apparently I should be hearing from this probation officer soon.

Because of the medical bills, I will be receiving a check in the mail for around $6,000.

My question is, is this money technically mine to do with what I please? I already paid my hospital and ambulance copays, and I pay for my insurance every year. So my insurance did the job they are supposed (and I pay them) to do. Am I really supposed to send them the money to reimburse them? If I don't, will I get in trouble?

Thanks!
