Necessary labor today: I had to put the fat claim file together and stuff it in an envelope. There were two forms to fill out from the City. Then I added a five-page attachment that described the incident, included the pictures and various odds-and-ends of why they didn’t have to worry about direct medical costs or lost wages. I discussed the process of deciding the bike was a total loss because a conservative estimate of parts and labor exceeded the cost of replacement. As it is, the City is getting a really good deal on that, because they will pay about 25% less than I did. I somehow got a copy of what EMSA wanted, included the bike tech’s written estimate. That’s a lot of paper.
With a clear conscience, I’ve put it all in the envelope and it’s going out in our mail later. Veloyce will have to go and get some extra postage. Pray with us that I didn’t mess something up. Someone at the City offices already hinted there’s no reason to expect a denial of the claim.
