Just got into an accident in a brand new car - got hit from the side - so Insurance Company has me ‘Not at Fault’ - however, the new car was not added to the policy before the accident. So, they will not pay for the repairs. Is there anything I can do?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

CA. Car was 1 day old

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes filed a claim

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes. Had insurance coverage - but car was not added to the policy

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
