Customer Question
I have a trucking company...
I have a trucking company that one of my employees had an accident about two years ago or so. There were two people in the car and both parties are suing me. I turned the paper work in and the attorneys actually had a deposition with one of the parties. Last year I was issued a letter from there attorneys stating that i never responded to the suit and asked for immediate grant for the lawsuit. I turned this back in to the attorneys and about a month later I received a letter from the insurance company saying they never received it and called it a reservation of rights. How can they do this when both parties are suing , i turned the paperwork in and they had a deposition with one of the parties. How can they say they didn't know about it?The insurance company is saying they hired me an attorney but are not responsible for any rewards in this case. Is there a certain time that my so called lawyer was suppose to respond to there letter? Or is there something else i need to do.As of right now the paperwork is sitting at the federal department waiting on an answer. Even if they settle it sounds like I would be responsible for the lawsuit. I paid my insurance and turned the paperwork in. This should be illegal. Please help

So to be clear the insurance company is saying the policy holder never responded to inquiries from the insurance company's attorney (the lawyer retained by the insurance company to represent the policy holder)?

the insurance is saying I never turned the original paperwork in. I've had six other incidents that were all turned in the same way. I go to there location, talk to one of there reps and they say the will file required documents and I walk out. Keep in mind the person suing me has attorney represents both clients.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
the insurance company hired an attorney for me but I think that's a smoke screen to get them out this suit.
Personal Injury Lawyer: legalg, Attorney replied 7 months ago

If the attorney was hired to represented the insured that attorney would have a professional duty to keep the client informed of the status of the case; if the case had a default judgment entered or other negative result due to the failure of the attorney to keep the client adequately informed that can give rise to a malpractice suit; not to mention a complaint with the state bar
