I have had an auto accident April 25th & I was not the

HelloI have had an auto accident April 25th & I was not the driver at fault. My car was severely damaged and is not in good drivable condition. My insurance company (the Hartford) told me that since it was not my fault, I should go directly to the “at fault company” (which is Liberty Mutual) and have them pay for the car repair, otherwise they will raise my rates. They told me if I have them (my insurance) process the claim any pay to have my car repaired, it will not affect my rate.I have called the “at fault company” repeatedly, they keep telling me they are working on it, and cannot pay anything until everything is complete & documented on their end.So with that being said !!!!Is my insurance B S'in me and are just too lazy to process my claim …..or is the (At Fault) Liberty Mutual people blowing smoke about this.And Finally should I Hire an Attorney to take this from here.Thank youHank Spranza

My Ex And I Currently Have An Auto Loan Together Next Four

My Ex And I Currently Have An Auto Loan Together For The Next Four Years. I've Already Spoken To The Loan Company About Removing My Name From The Lien And They Told Me It WasNot Possible For Me To Be Removed. Up Until February 2016, We Both Paid Half On The Monthly Payments. The Insurance On The Vehicle Is In My Name And I Had To Sign A Document With My Insurance Company Stating That She Was Not Allowed To Drive The Vehicle. Because She Has A SuspendeD License. I Agreed To Allow Her To Keep The vehicle As Long As The Vehicle Stay Parked Until She Received Her Drivers License. She Has Yet To Try To Get Her License Back. It Has Now Been Almost 4 Months And She Has Yet To Make An Attempt To Figure Out Her Drivers License Suspension. I Have ReceiveD Evidence That She Has Been Driving The Vehicle Illegally Without A Drivers License. I Was Tempted To Remove The Insurance But That Would Result In The Vehicle Being Repossessed, Which Would Greatly Effect My Credit. She's Also Been Getting Later And Later With Making The Auto Payments. I've Had To Float Her For A Few Weeks Every Month For The Past Few Months Because She Doesn't Have The Money When The Payment Is Due.What Is There To Do In This Type Of Situation?

I have a two- part question for a Texas lawyer please1)I live in Texas state. I am unsure about how to answer the question -"Have you ever been convicted of a crime" with no other specification, on an application Precheck's pre employment criminal background check. I had paid reduced fine in Sugar Land city Municipal Court in 2012 January for a minor traffic violation- Expired Car Inspn Ticket. Am I legally obliged per Texas law to disclose this minor traffic violation on this application or is this irrelevant? I just wanted to know if its required.2)Are minor traffic violations in Sugar land, TX considered as part of the Precheck's criminal background checks?

A week ago my granddaughter had an auto accident. She had

A week ago my granddaughter had an auto accident. She had only had her car four days. She had the car covered with progressive insurance. She was cited for failure to yield. Progressive is saying that they will only cover liability because the car that was traded in a 1993 BMW only had liability coverage. The damaged car is a 2009 toyota and has a loan of almost $10,000. I think Colorado law requires a car carrying a loan to have full coverage. But the insurance is saying there is a 30 day period before new coverage is in effect. The girls mother is a co-signer and supposedly the dealership cleared for insurance when the deal was made, which has been the case whenever I bought a car. No mention was made of a 30 waiting period for new coverage. I can't imagine a dealership releasing a car without proof of insurance.

I was involved in a auto accident which wasn't my fault. I

I was involved in a auto accident which wasn't my fault. I Hired a PI Attorney. The case settled two years later. My Attorney took his 40% Doctors and medical bills were paid and I was awarded the balance which was $90,000 of the balance. My Attorney said he would keep the remaining $50,000 in a trust account to to cover any medical expenses due to a second accident I was involved in before the first had settled, but two totally different cases. I agreed to it @ the time because he made it sound like the two cases crossed which they had, but one had nothing to do with the other. After getting off pain meds and pulling my life together, I can think more clearly. I realized he's using my remaining $50,000 owed to me to cover medical costs if he is unable to get enough, awarded from the second case. I signed an agreement to having his firm hold this $50,000 in regards ***** ***** medical costs involved in the second case. I've realized He is using my money to cover his own ass! I have an appointment to see him this week. I'm asking for my $50, 000 back. The second case hasn't settled yet. By signing an agreement allowing him to hold the funds from my first case, does that give him the legal right to hold the funds and not pay me? I've been told by others, not attorney's that he cannot and it is against the law if he try's. What are my legal rights? If he does what can I do. Can he get away with this if I'm in the right?

My father passed away three weeks at age 85 and left

Hello,My father passed away three weeks at age 85 and left a small inheritance to me. Four years ago, he was in an auto accident on a city street in which his car was demolished (hit on the passenger right front end by a Hummer) and he suffered two broken vertebrae, a broken arm, and was unconscious for over two days. He was in the hospital for over two weeks and then went to rehab for a period of time.While sorting through my Dad's files, I found a letter from the insurance company detailing a recent update from one of the two other vehicles' occupant who was involved in the crash. A week later, I received a letter (addressed to my Dad at his home) from the other accident victim's attorney, stating that he was to appear at a court mediation session in July.Regarding my Dad's small estate, I am the sole beneficiary and also the Trustee/executor (it was held in a Revocable Trust). My obvious questions follow:1) Now that he has passed away, are his assets still subject to a law suit?2) If so, how can this be done through mediation since he has passed away?3) WHAT can I do to protect the assets from a law suit. I was divorced five years ago and took a horrendous financial beating ($85,000 in attorney fees and well over half of all assets). I also am paying 50% of the college for a freshman son. My other son has cystic fibrosis, a fatal disease which requires continuous medication, therapy, and frequent hospital stays for bacterial infections of his lungs. I am 59 and only have about 10% equity in the house that I had to purchase following the divorce to live in.Thanks,Eric
