We were in a car accident and we called roadside assistance

We were in a car accident and we called roadside assistance to have our car towed. Without signing anything, our car got towed away. We did not know its location, contact or pricing. Our claim got stuck in process, we received an invoice from the body shop (it was backdated by 1 month+) with unfairly high rates and very vague details. We cannot afford the storage fees they are asking for and they are unwilling to negotiate, probably attempting to obtain the lien to auction our vehicle off.Per Civil Code 3068, is it true that all services rendered cannot exceed $1500?Per Civil Code 3070, can they not charge us any amount without notifying us in writing of pricing and obtaining our signature before rendering services/charging us?Can we get our vehicle released to us without paying anything due to lack of authorization or should we negotiate for the $1500 limit since it has been in storage for so long?

My son was in a car accident with two other cars and he is

My son was in a car accident with two other cars and he is found at fault. He has car insurance but a poor policy. The total amount for collision is $10,000 and $30,000 (per acccident) for medical. My son was not injured but the car he hit had two people in it that are now claiming they where injured. They refused medical care when the police and ambulance showed up. The passenger that was injured told my son he had pre existing back injuries. All three insurance companies are working on this, but we need to know if we should get an attorney involved (my son as no assets). Thanks in advance for advise.

i have an attorney for a car accident/bodily injury case. he sent a demand letter to my insurance company before we had finished discussing the total amount of my bills. it turns out the amount he asked for will not leave enough room to negotiate a proper settlement for me. What kind of recourse do i have? i feel like he is trying to just get a quick settlement to cover his own time.

I was in a car accident in April. A hay fell off a trailer

I was in a car accident in April. A hay bale fell off a trailer and caused an initial accident. A line of cars formed up to the on ramp of the highway. I entered the highway on said on ramp visibility was low, haze and dust were everywhere. something was in the middle of the road. I change lanes to avoid not seeing the line when I have a rear end collision with the stopped car causing it to hit the car in front of it. The police report states that I was following to close. I am blamed for the accident. My insurance covers the person up to 25,000 dollars. I get a letter in the mail from state farm stating this policy has covered all but 22.84 but that I owe them 9300. They claim it is for the person who was hit by the person I hit. And for recovery of highway rail damage. These are not stated in the letter. I have already received a bill from the state for the highway damage. I don't know my rights in this situation and I don't want to be sued for money I don't owe. Please help
