On the down side aero-medical flights are usually around $8,000. On the up side flight company's love car accidents because they get to bill the auto insurance companies to recoup costs. Hopefully that will come out of the other guy's insurance. I've seen far too many accidents like that end badly so I'm glad to hear your mom's doing okay.
Unfortunately it comes out of our insurance even though it was the other guy's fault. His insurance will pay for the car, but your own insurance always picks up your medical costs. It really sucks, damn no fault law. But if you sue, you can recoup those costs. Not sure if she will go that route, but we'll be talking to a lawyer who's a friend of the family for advice. Another FL stipulation is that you cannot sue unless you have permanent injuries or undergo surgery. Neither of those conditions have been ruled out, she can't currently eat in case she needs to go into surgery and her back is killing her.

dam... that's gonna be a fun bill to see for the airlift. hope all goes smooth for recovery and insurance.

If she's going to get one of those, I'll have her take over my payments and give me the insurance check, which should be about 5k (I put down 6200), give her my 05 SP23 and get something better. But we likely won't get a car too soon. Her sister, my aunt, just got an 05 Avalon and is going to give us her old car which is about an 00 Saturn. She was planning on flying up to Maryland on Tuesday and driving the car back to Florida but that isn't happening. We'll get the other guy to pay for the plane ticket she had for Tuesday but can't use too. We needed another car for the family sometime, but I doubt she'll be going back to work anytime soon, so we won't need it until she goes back. Maybe I'll give her my car and get a new car anyways.
