I'm sorry to hear about your mother. Although in most instances, the insurance company would only have to pay the policy limits. However, there may be other things we can do, and there may be other avenues of recovery. Some examples include vehicle owner's policy, other household members, etc. I would need quite a bit more information before I can tell you for sure.

Feel free to call me if you'd like to discuss it further.

This is another example of why we need higher minimum insurance policy limits, the other attorney is right there are other possible insurances including if your mother had auto insurance of her own. I would be honored to help your mother. This fight will be on two fronts: 1 finding all available insurance, 2. Arguing a reduction in the medical bills so that your mother isn't left with the debt....one option if we can't find other insurance is crime victim compensation.
