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?

I was involved in a car accident last year. The other driver

I was involved in a car accident last year. The other driver was drunk and deemed at fault. He did not have insurance or a license. I had liability only insurance. So I had my car towed to my home. It has sat there ever since. I deemed it totaled based on the value of the car and the cost to repair it. The costs were more than double the value. Now I want to sell the car just to get rid of it. What do I need to do to sell it legally and safely? I am worried that I will sell it to someone who tries to repair it and then they get hurt later. I don't have much so I can't afford to be sued. I know I need to disclose the full condition of the car. Outside of that what do I need to do? I live in Alabama.

On March 15, 2015 I was in a car accident and found at

On March 15, 2015 I was in a car accident and found at fault. My insurance covered $10,000 but not the additional $12,000. They are holding me responsible for that money. Currently I'm unemployed, on food stamps and "Obamacare." Have been for months. Their insurance attorney sent me a letter offering to let me pay $100 a month, which I could maybe manage if I work some odd jobs and pay it all to them each month. But now I procrastinated too long and received a notice that they are suing me. Is it too late to get the 100 a month? Will they possess the few things I have? Will they suspend my drivers license until it's all paid (which will probably not be until I'm dead and gone)? This is Indianapolis, Indiana.

My daughter was recently in a car accident which the police

My daughter was recently in a car accident which the police found was not her fault. The other individual had auto insurance but for some reason was not covering a rental car for her while her car was being fixed. So she worked with her insurance company, which is Geico, and they supplied her a rental car. She has some of the best coverage with Geico. My question is, now Geico is requesting her to pay a $500 deductible, and I am wondering if they can do this? Again the police report shows that it was not her fault and was the other parties' fault who I understand has valid car insurance.

Almost 2 years ago I was in a car accident. There were no

Almost 2 years ago I was in a car accident. There were no tickets or summonses issued. Myself and the other driver denied medical attention. A car merged quickly into my lane and I overcompensated hitting the other cars driver side rear fender. There was very little damage and the accident must have been no more than 5-10 mph. Now she is during me and the company I was working for fir personal injuries, lost wages, emotion psychological stress. They claim I am unfit to drive and pose a risk to society. The truck I was driving was owned and insured by my employer. The suit defendants are myself and my former employer. New York is a no fault state. Do I need a lawyer or does my employer go through his insurance.

I was in a car accident. A minor one - roughly $1500 in

I was in a car accident. A minor one - roughly $1500 in damage. I was driving on a side street when a driver pulled out of his driveway and hit the front driver's fender and wheel. I am a 27 year single mom and I had my two young children in the car. The driver, a older bigger male, jumped out of his car and proceeded to yell at me. He asked why i didn't see him ( I should have asked him the same question but was too afraid). I said I did not know I was looking at my speedometer. That is what went into the police report. To the point; I only have liability insurance and his insurance company is refusing to pay out. My thought is that he hit me as I was driving down the street? I do not believe this is a fair settlement, and my insurance company is not willing to help since I do not have collision. Any advice?

I recently was in a car accident. Thankfully I was not

I recently was in a car accident. Thankfully I was not injured. Just days before the accident I took my car (a Hyundai Elantra 2008) to get it serviced. While driving my car it malfunctioned leading me to crash into a hotel wall. When I told the car service manager what had occurred. He claimed they were not at fault, and that I should take the matter up with Hyundai. After Hyundai did their investigation they claimed they were not at fault. Although they did find some problem codes and insisted that I take the matter up with the car service company. I have been searching for legal assistance but no one will help me because I wasn't injured. I want to know if I should pursue legal matters or not, and if so what type of lawyer should I pursue in this case?
