Looks like phone call is at an additional cost.
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 4 months ago

Yes. The phone calls are $59 - significantly less expensive than spending even a few minutes in the office of an attorney.

My question is as following.I recently leased a 2017 toyota highlander, which comes with lots of safety features, including, automatic collision avoidance/braking. we were at a stop light in Merrimack, NH waiting for the traffic to move. The car infront of me just went ahead, so I started moving and suddenly the guy infront of me came to a sudden stop, I tried stopping, while I was trying to stop, my car's automatic feature kicked in, "BRAKE" message appeared in Dashboard, but the car still wouldnt stop, it took control off my brake and when i pressed the brake pedal it wouldnt stop. I ended up hitting the car infront of me. My first accident ever! I called toyota today to let them know about the incident and filed a case with them. What should be my next step?
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 4 months ago

Your next step would be to contact your insurance company and let them know about the accident. You also would have wanted to file a police report for the accident and exchange insurance information with the car in front of you.

Ofcourse all of that is completed - My question is regarding how to handle this issue with Toyota, I heard from so many people that they are very hard to convince that this is their issue/fault.
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 4 months ago

You could hire an attorney to send them a letter but there's really no convincing a giant corporation without some evidence.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Hello, I was involved in an Auto Collision on Feb. 9 involving another car. The occurred in a private property shopping center parking lot. My insurance company just e-mailed my and said they are (me) accepting damages and liability. One alarming element is at this intersection where the accident occurred their are NO stop or yield signage except for cars entering the parking lot from the main street??? The day after the accident I sent my Insurance company an e-mail describing my recollection, with several photos and a graphic depicting the incident. I had the auto towed to a collision center and their "estimate" was over $15,000 and them deemed the car as a total loss???. But talking to them earlier they said my car did NOT meet the total loss minimum for the car due to its current value (2011 Lexus LS460). I have never had a major accident or a situation like this before. I don't know if I "need" an attorney to work with me against my "own" insurance company? … read more
