I just can't blame wallyworld for wanting the money back, her accident was someone elses fault, recouping their money is standard practice, her lawyers are to blame for not including the recoup in her lawsuit. i am suprised that wallyworld is not sueing the company at fault but then agian I only play a lawyer.

In regards to your letter from BCBS, all insurance companies send that type of letter when there is an accident to coordinate benefits with any other insurance co that might be involved.
Hoping with the publicity this ladies family is getting somehow the tables will turn in her favor.
It is Wal-Mart suing on behalf of the group insurance plan that covered this woman. The money will not go into Wal-Mart's revenue, but will be returned to the group plan for the benefit of the others also enrolled in that plan. It is terrible what happened to this woman, but it's the fault of the attorney who originally represented her against the truck owner and who evidently did not understand her insurance plan and failed to communicate with her insurer about the settlement. The family should sue the original lawyer, IMO.

Default True though

The sad part about it is it's so true. I remember when Wal-Mart was a little mom and pop store. Typical of anything ALL throughout history and it happens EVERY time...EVERY TIME!!! They get to big for their britches and they go belly up. It will happen. I don't like Wal-Mart anymore. It's not the same, but the problem now is the monopoly they have on retail. Sad indeed.
