I contact them and their rep from the other insurance company say they will not paid.What is the process? Who should paid the insurance of the person at fault or the person at fault? How can I get the expenses paid?

I am not sure why they are denying payment of the medical bills.  It might be best to consult the legal advice of an attorney to see if he can get the medical bills paid.  In the meantime, if you have med pay coverage, you can submit the bills to your own insurance company for payment up to your med pay limit.  If you have health insurance, you can submit the bill to be paid by them.  This is just a temporary fix until you can get reimbursed by the at-fault party.  Keep all copies of bills and receipts for medicines and the like.  Click here to find an attorney in your area.
