I am covered by Medicare (71 yrs. old) My wife and I were in

I am covered by Medicare (71 yrs. old) My wife and I were in an auto accident on 6/23/2012. I was driving in a serve rain storm and lost control of the car. (single car accident) My wife died at the scene of the accident. I had an extended stay in the hospital and rehab center. I received $50,000 life insurance for the death of my wife from our automobile insurance co. Our auto insurance also paid $1000 to the hospital for my medical treatment. Medicare paid my medical expenses, but are now saying that I owe them $50,000 because the money I received for my wife's death is considered primary insurance before Medicare. Is this true?

My 19 yr old son was hurt in an auto accident by another

My 19 yr old son was hurt in an auto accident by another person and he decided not to accept the insured insurance company's offer to close the case, but to obtain a personal auto accident lnjury Lawyer instead. A personal auto accident injury Lawyer did take his case in April 15th of this year, but since then We haven't had any movement on his case. I've been calling everyday trying to get information on his case and I just get the receptionist telling me that the Lawyer's assistant is not in and would I like to leave a message on her voice mail. I'm tired of leaving messages when I don't get any calls returned. What should we do? How can we get information on our case? We are running out of time!!!

I have a question regarding an auto accident personal injury

I have a question regarding an auto accident personal injury settlement. The insurance company sent a settlement offer (very low) I then called and told them what I thought was fair and they raised their offer $1800. The problem is I do not think that is fair. I've done research online and used the 1.5-5 multiplier and their final offer is lower than what it would be if I used a 1 multiplier. Their client rear-ended me and I hurt my knee. I had a CT Scan and Xray which did not show a break or tear. However my normal activities have been affected by this injury. I used to walk three miles everyday, I can barely walk one. I used to wear heels everyday all day and now can barely make it through half a day without putting on my slippers. My knee gives me problems in the cold and with activity still today. My medical bills total $4,090.00 and lost wages total $960.00. I was in treatment for nearly 6weeks. It has been 9 months since the accident which occurred on October 21, 2015. The insurance first offer was $7300 and then after I called to decline it they raised it to $9,000. I am just wanting to know if this is a fair offer. I feel my pain and suffering will increase as I get older. I've been diagnosed with anxiety and I have had to raise my dosage of insomnia meds because of what my lifestyle has been limited to since my knee injury.

I had been in an auto accident a couple nights ago in

I had been in an auto accident a couple nights ago in Illinois.I knodded off at the wheel for about a second and ended up clipping construction vehicles. I was on call, and been working my day job and side work to try to make some extra money.Nobody was struck, or hurt. Due to this being in a construction zone I'm very scared before my court date. I see a lot of signs talking about going to jail on the road. Any advise would be useful. I have a great deal of anxiety over this.

My husband and I were involved in an auto accident on

My husband and I were involved in an auto accident on October 1, 2014. We were traveling at the speed limit when hit from behind by a driver in a pickup truck.We were traveling to my husband's first checkup after abdominal surgery (September 4, 2014) when the accident occurred. My husband was driving and the impact caused the seat belt to clamp down on his surgery wounds. He was transported by emergency squad to the hospital emergency room to insure his surgery had not been compromised The officer's at the scene released me from the scene and assured me the car's drivability was intact so I drove it to the hospital myself. We were both evaluated and released.The truck driver was insured. His insurance company has paid nothing as a result of this accident. They are insisting we sign releases so they can pay bills... we are reluctant to sign a release without knowing exactly what bills they are paying... concerned that a "release" would absolve them of responsibility to reimburse our insurance company for the car repair costs and our insurance providers, Medicare and Tricare, for the medic transport and emergency room treatment.So we are at an impasse...we won't sign until they pay and they won't pay until we sign. Worse yet, the clock is ticking and the requirement to settle in two years is rapidly approaching.Can you advise what we should do to solve this problem without placing ourselves in a position where we end up having to reimburse the providers because the at-fault driver's has failed to do so?

This question is educator Esq please... I have a Pro Se case

this question is for law educator Esq please...I have a Pro Se case in west palm beach Florida circuit courthouse. I am suing the owner of a car that hit my car in an auto accident for damages. I already did mediation in 2015 and my next step is to prepare for trail. mark exhibits and set a trail date.I have not done so as yet because I was pregnant and sick the last 9 months and now I am ready to proceed. I received a motion from the judge titled:"MOTION, NOTICE, AND ORDER OF DISMISSAL"stating there appears to be no activity by filing of pleadings, order of court for a period of 10 months immediately proceeding service of this notice and no stay has been issued or approved by the court.it goes on to state pursuant to Rule 1.420(e) if no such record activity occurs within 60 days following service of this notice and if no stay is issued or approved during such sixty day period this action shall be dismissed by the court on its own motion unless a party shows good cause, in writing at least five days before the hearing on the court's motion why this action should remain pending....My question to you is I want to respond to this notice from the judge. I want to proceed with trial. What would I title it and also do I have to send any type of proof that I was sick/pregnant or do I broadly mention it without giving details of my medical condition??Also with my next step marking my evidence for trial do I submit that to the judge chambers only or do I also have to submit copies to the opposing attorney and file in the clerk office?

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?
