Do you need to reimburse a carrier for medical bills?
Do I have to reimburse my insurance company for medical bills related to a car crash after I get a personal injury settlement?

Claims can be very complex, especially if they involve injuries and lawsuits. Each claim must be handled based on its own merits. It is best to discuss the specifics of your settlement agreement with your attorney or claims adjuster.
That being said, the general rule is for insurance to make you “whole,” meaning your damages must be covered before your insurance company can take any money you get in a settlement. You may need to reimburse the carrier for medical expenses. It is essential in this situation to have a lawyer you trust.

The dealership said I qualify for a $25,000 car loan, but the interest rate is higher than I expected at almost 12%. I make good money and can afford the payments. However, I would like to know if this is a good interest rate or if I am getting ripped off.
