Our client was traveling in the Middle East when she fell and suffered a serious injury. She was treated at a local hospital but required medical evacuation back to the United States.
Before her trip, our client purchased a travel insurance policy before leaving on her trip. The policy provided for emergency evacuation benefits up to $50,000.00. The insurer refused to pay the full value of the emergency evacuation arguing that our client should have travel back to the Untied States on a much cheaper, commercial stretcher flight. Litigation continues.
