Unclear what you are asking about. If you were in a company vehicle, the company's auto insurance should have applied, including Medical Payments and Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage (if the collision was the fault of another party). If you are asking about medical coverage, it would...Read more »
Suspect admitted 100% fault right away. I was in a rental that I was liable for. Lawyer that represented me at time settled me out for 2,000…. I feel like there’s room for compensation. Please contact me asap as I need help pursuing this
Incident happened August 24th (nied)… treated for 3 months… last session was dec.7th…. Called attorney says claim is in discovery mode….. how long left til claim is done? When should I expect a settlement offer?
This question should be presented to your attorney. He is being paid for this. In general, settlement can take a few weeks to a few years. Where your case fits along that spectrum depends on facts, which we don't have.
My lawsuit settled in August 2021 the law firm that represented me only give me half of my settlement and said that Medicare was owed the other half. But never showed me proof of this and I've been asking since for some sort of proof that Medicare stepped in and took half the funds. Is there... Read more »
If you made a demand, and the defendant agreed to it, you don't get to decide whether you will live up to your demand. Unless your offer expired, or the defendant tried to impose new and different conditions, the contract has been made.
After you made the offer, and the defendant...Read more »

You must have your own UM coverage. If so, you need to request UM arbitration against your own insurer. Settlements are not automatic just because the lien amount came in. You need to litigate your case to make your insurer pay.
Sounds like you have an attorney. If so, direct all...Read more »
You can wait, or you can try to get a new attorney. No one can tell you whether your case should be settled by now. We don't know your injuries, medical treatment, medical expenses, whether your treatment is complete or ongoing, how many expert witnesses you require to testify at your UIM...Read more »
And drove into the car behind me, & the car behind that. She wasn’t injured, nobody was, even though her car ended up on its side. I only have liability insurance. Her insurance put me off for six months, then decided not to pay me out for my totaled car, & the money I’m out on towing,... Read more »
Your attorney probably cannot tell you how much you will receive before you sign. Medi-Cal won't even provide a reimbursement number until the settlement is signed. Medicare can take months to negotiate. Health insurers won't agree to a reduction of their reimbursement requests until...Read more »

There are companies who will identify possible insurers, for a fee. You can also write to the defendant and ask for that information. You would be better off, and have more chance of learning this information, if you hired an attorney. You will get very little respect as a self-represented claimant.
It’s been well over a year and still have gotten paid I signed the release form but the insurance company of the person at fault is claiming they can’t pay until everyone signs it, to be brief, one person hasn’t signed so until then no one gets paid

I planned to do a trial, but my attorney gave up my case now, so I changed my mind and want to accept the settlement by myself. So can I talk to the defendant directly and agree on a... Read more »
You can do that, but the defendant's motivation to settle, now that you do not have an attorney, will be substantially less. Do not be surprised if the offer is no longer there. Also, your former attorney might be a payee on the check along with you since he may have a claim to some portion...Read more »

This creates a conflict of interest between you and the attorney which must be the subject of a written agreement per Rule 1.7, and...Read more »
