I live in California. A few months ago, someone ran a car in front of my house. The driver damaged property belong to 4 people including me. Their insurance covers only 5k, but the total of all our claims is far more. The driver's insurance company sent all of us a pro-rated settlement as required by law, but there's a caveat. Their insurance company demanded that all of us claimants must sign a release together or none of us get the money, in addition to releasing the driver of all other claims. I've never seen such a release before. If all of us were related in some ways, I could understand the the release requirement, but we are all individual claimants, so why are we required to sign the release together?

I am working on a free walking tour. The City does not require liability insurance (CGL) but I want one for added protection. The broker I am working with insists that I must charge for the tour; that a contractual relationship must exist (tour in exchange for $). I fail to see the relevance in terms of assumed risk on their part for paid v. free tours. Anyway, if I decide to charge a penny, could they deny me coverage on a claim because a penny does not constitute a high enough payment to meet the definition of a contractual obligation?

For the past 4 months I've been dealing with an auto

Hi, for the past 4 months I've been dealing with an auto insurance claim they have been giving me the toughest time. My car was t-boned back in July with my son in the car . Given that information since then , I had to pay $2132 I towing because of miscommunication between the agents that had said my car was totaled then they said it wasn't. They have been speaking to me and my mother they had asked me where I got the money from to pay for the towing which I believe is over stepping boundaries and then proceeded to tell my mom that I lied about the car being totaled which has now caused a drift in my family and caused me unbearable stress that could have been avoided. I honestly don't know what to do anymore every time I speak to an agent they are rude and yell over anything have to say. what should I do I really need the reimbursement money now more than ever especially with the holidays hereJA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.Customer: MassachusetsJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: so far the only thing that has been reported was the actual accident I've been very patient with them and ignoring the rude comments I really wanted to avoid the legal route but at this point I feel like I have no choiceJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no that will be all for now how much is the rest
