I was in a parking garage and was completely backed out of

I was in a parking garage and was completely backed out of my stall, stopped and shifting into drive, when another party came around the corner and hit my back driverside bumper. A security guard took both our statements. The other party stated he did not see me in time. The security report stated based on the statements and broken glass, I was fully out of the stall when the collision occurred and the other party was either driving too fast or not paying attention. His insurance services company said I was 30% at fault "for failing to keep a proper lookout while backing out". When I denied to accept their claims and stated I even had a report from security that supported my statement, they said theyou completed their own investigation and I wasn't all the way out of the stall and he had the right of way and I should have been aware of him driving up the ramp and coming around the corner. Then wanted to know when I was going to set up a time with my insurance to get the repairs done. I do not want to go through my insurance at all and have that on my insurance record and raise my rates. I also do not want to pay my insurance company deductible and not be reimbursed if I do go through mine and they do subrigation. What would be my next step to take with the I surname company? They do not give any appeal language, just saying if I do not agree to contact Nebraska Department of Insurance. Don't they legally have to give instructions on how to file an appeal? I was under the impression this was required by all insurance companies if they were denying all or part of a claim.

I had a traffic accident where I was t by a yellow cab that

I had a traffic accident where I was hit by a yellow cab that was not insured. I contracted with a lawyer, Nicole Pacella, with whom I went to deposition and several months. One day I called her office to update her and was told she had RETIRED. They aid they had assigned Anthony Chiarello to my case. I got his email address and proceeded to introduce myself to him. He answered my email wondering why I wanted to argue with him. I thought I was communicating.The next email I received from him was to "remind" me of the mediation we were scheduled for "tomorrow". I had no information re it.He drove me to the mediation at the office of Mr. Shapiro in Sunrise. During the drive he told me he did not know why we were doing this but I should keep my mouth shut and he would probably learn something from the meeting because he usually did. I pointed out that you cannot go to court in this County unless you first go to mediation.He told me that maybe I should find another attorney. Then he immediately backed out of that. I called the lead attorney to ask for help and received notice that they were taking me to court to withdraw from my case!Now I am having trouble finding an attorney. This is an uninsured motorist case for which I have two policies. It happened 10-21-11 and I have been under the care of several doctors during the entire time with the same complaints. Pacella had planned a jury trial. I probably have $15,000. in outstanding doctor bills. The first neurologist told me not to go to work ( I would heal faster). He wrote it on a Rx. As a result I have lost my business of 39 years.

A sheriff served me with papers because I am a postal

A sheriff served me with papers because I am a postal employee that just happened to be in my postal truck while on the job. I was at a red light waiting and somebody ran into me from behind. I then hit the person in front of me but his car had no damage. The man that I hit is suing the Post Office for $50,000,he is suing me for 50,000 and two other people for $50,000 that ran into me. I have been assured by third parties in the Post Office that I am not liable for any incurring judgment against me but is that true? He is suing me for 50,000.Also as I was reading the paper the sheriff gave me the traffic accident was wrong. He said all the cars and trucks were in motion and it was my fault because I was driving to close to him. We were stopped at a red light. I could buy a traffic report from the police but the lawyer is just going to say the policeman was not there. There were witnesses at the gas station but I don't know if they are going to want to get involved. The Post Office does have lawyers that deal with the case but if you were in my situation what would you do?

I am an independent trucker. In 2013 I was involved in a traffic accident in Lewis County, Washington. My insurance carrier paid for the damage to my truck, but I have about 24K in personal property damage and costs along with disruption of business/loss of income related to to the accident. I have filed suit in pro per to recover those losses. The other party has admitted liability, discovery is done and in the absence of any offer to negotiate from the other side, I am ready to move forward with a trial.I need counsel as to exactly what document(s) should be prepared and filed with the court to move the case to trial and what the steps are that will bring us to trial.

I am an independent taxi driver (yellow cab, broward county

I am an independent taxi driver (yellow cab, broward county florida) who was involved in a traffic accident where I hit a pedestrian, who eventually died a week later in the hospital. Although I was not cited by the police in the accident, I am being sued, along with the owner of my taxi cab (I lease it) and I am sure the Yellow Cab company (B&L services) of which the cab is associated. As part of my contract includes liability insurance provided by the yellow cab company, the lawsuit says I have to answer it withing 20 days of my being served. Do I need to hire my own attorney, even though the Yellow cab claims department, who already debriefed me after the accident has their lawyers on the case. I should mention that the traffic homocide investigators, and the yellow cab lawyers allowed me to continue to drive my taxi, as according to the evidence they garnered from the investigation and what was shown on the drive cam camera inside of my cab proved I was not doing anything wrong and tried to avoid hitting the victim, contrary to what the complaint says in the lawsuit.

Hello,I'm being sued for a traffic accident that happened a year before I got married. I am working and all assets I have is a fully paid $27k, now about $16k worth. If I get a judgment ($25+), can my wife possibly be responsible? Can my car be repossessed? Can giving the car to my wife or another relative prevent it from getting repossessed? I am in California.Thank you in advance!
