Greetings, I have a question...
Greetings, I have a question regarding a small claims case. The defendant's insurance company was negligent in responding to the property damages (car) demands which caused unnecessary wage loss.

Thank You for posting your civil procedure question this evening. I'm attorney Bill following up on your legal request.

Because you are suing for damages you can give specifics of all your consequential damages.

The insurance company can be added upon motion and or request to the court by either you the plaintiff or the defendant.

If you would like to add the insurance company as a defendant you request the clerk to amend your claim.

The process is explained here:

Dear Attorney Bill,Thank you for clear and thorough response. The wage loss (I think rather economic loss, since I was working for Lyft at the time) is in consequence of the insurance companies actions and not the defendant's. Kindly, I am understanding from your advice that I should not add this to the case, unless the insurance company is added as defendant? Thank you for your help!

Thanks for your your follow up.

You are entitled to add all damages that are reasonable proximal and foreseeable to the defendant's conduct.

If the insurance company's are acting on the defendant's behalf there would be scope to add this loss.

If the insurance company is your insurer then this may be not reasonably related to the defendant's harm and liability.

I'm an independent legal expert and rely on your positive feedback today to get a credit for my time .

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated.

Thanks
