I was rear-end and the person whom hit my car admitted that he hit my car at the red light but his defense is that there was a 3rd driver whom I never saw. I have filed a small claim case against the insurance company since they admit he did rear end my car and was insured by them but they said they are not liable due to this mysterious 3rd driver. Their client did not call for a police officer to file a hit and run, and I don't think he ever file a accident claim. The insurance company is represent by a lawyer and they have requested and granted a jury trial. My question is due I even need to argue that there was not a 3rd driver or can I just provided my medical report of my injury of a hernia disc and the letter from the insurance company admitting to the fact that their client hit my car at the red light.

Question regarding accident claim and workers compensation.

Question regarding accident claim and workers compensation. Person gets approved for workers' compensation claim due to workplace injury. The amount of award has not yet been determined. Within a month of winning the hearing, same person is in a horrific accident but miraculously survives. His insurance benefits end and Medicaid picks up. Guardianship proceedings needed. PI case will not cover all medical costs. Will Medicaid look to the lump sum workers' compensation payment to get reimbursed even though it's an entire separate matter? Does the guardian need to set up a supplemental needs trust for the person to avoid this?

I received a letter from my adjuster that they could not reach a settlement in my car accident claim. (I was at fault) Then the letter states I might receive documents from their attorney. (Being sued) When I spoke to my adjuster this morning he said they were still in negotiations and the letter was just to prepare me "just in case." What's going on?

I was in a couple of auto accidents back one in December

I was in a couple of auto accidents back one in December 2013 where I was hit by a drunk driver and the other in June 2013 which was a hit and run on the freeway. Progressive, my insurance carrier settled the first claim for full policy limits on May 12,2014 after it was determined I should have surgery on my neck. At that time I did not have any medical insurance. I reported my second accident claim to Progressive on the day of my accident in June 4, 2013. At that time Progressive asked if I were injuredand I stated yes and that I was going to see a doctor, but wanted to take a wait and see attitude toward my injuries because they might get better on their own. They stated they would open a claim and gave me a claim number and stated if I needed treatmentthat I could do so at anytime and gave me a time frame for my claim, like 2 years. I did seek initial treatment after the date of injury in June of 2013 I seemed to be getting better, but still sore, I was also on some pretty strong pain meds for some timedue to the first injury that were actually masking my injuries. I also later had started a new job that was more physically demanding and the injuries started to be more pronounced. Because I didn't have any medical insurance I decided to pursue the claim.I contacted Progressive several times and they were not being helpful so I decided to seek the help of an accident attorney. I started therapy and saw an Orthopedic I have been in treatment for about six months and was off work because of the injuries formy shoulder, knee and hip. My lawyer had some deadlines to meet for my claim and recently turned in $17K worth of medical bills. The insurance company opened my claim as a (UM) uninsured motorist claim as I found out from LexisNexis a consumer reporting agencyrecently. My lawyer seems to be wanting to drop out of this claim and stated he would negotiate a reduction in my medical bills after Progressive pays the Med claim. Today I found out that Progressive is now asking for past medical records before they willpay the claim. They did this with my last attorney and he told them no and to pay the claim. My attorney wants to drop out and have me work with Progressive directly, because he feels I can better answer their questions. I feel they are trying to place injuryon the first accident, but before settling they took my deposition and determined that the injuries were in no way related. I have since asked for a copy of that deposition from the previous adjuster who agreed to send this to me. Does my attorney have a rightto drop off the case after he took it to begin with? My medical bills are on lien what does this mean and what could I be left responsible for? Since this is a UM claim and my coverage goes to 100K I believe I should press the insurance company I have a rightarbitration, should I just go there or try to work with the insurance company? Why would my attorney want out? My opinion is not a high value case for them, they also waved their fees.

I had a vehicle accident with a pedestrian. I feel confident it was his fault.If a civil lawsuit ensues and goes beyond my liability limit of $50,000 (which it most likely will), how can I protect my house and vehicles? Is it possible to transfer deeds if I still owe before the lawsuit takes effect?

I was in a very small "fender bender" with a friend and we need to know who is legally At Fault. I was pulling in to a parking spot next to her that was vacant. I saw her car (she has a Lexus, I have a Camry) and had plenty of clearance and was within the lines of the spot. As I pulled in, she opened her door to get out and my car bumped her door, creating a dent. My car has some scratches on the front fender where we bumped. The door works fine and my scratches are just cosmetic. We'd prefer not to use insurance.
