Does having a higher Umbrella limit make me a target for a larger settlement after an accident? Is this a State by State Law and if so, is there a good source to check?

An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. Until you are able to consult definitively with a local attorney, your carrier might be able to provide guidance on this. Case law on disclosure could differ by state - but carriers nationwide are attentive to the... Read more »
While under contract for sale, pipes froze and burst causing extensive damage (we had already relocated so it was not caught immediately.) The buyer went through with the sale but at a $25k reduction in price. Can I ask my home insurance company to compensate me for this loss in value?
answered on Dec 30, 2022
Whoever owned the home at the time of the damage turns in a claim to their insurance company.
Lapse in policy change 9yrs ago and she was never notified of any lapse or lack of home insurance. Progressive says they can’t locate the original policy and won’t back pay her or give her the insurance she’s paid for 9yrs straight.

You likely have a bad-faith claim against your insurer. They cannot both take the money under the policy and claim that there is no enforceable policy.
I was in an auto accident 4 months ago.. The other man was at fault, but did not file a claim (I was just informed of this) for 4 months I have not had a reliable vehicle, nor have repairs been made by our insurance due to no collision policy. Our insurance did send the adverse carrier 4 demand... Read more »

Auto insurance is tricky. You don't have a claim against his insurance company. You have a claim against him. He has a claim against his insurance company if they refuse to pay you on his behalf. Your insurance company has no claim against anyone, because you did not have collision coverage.... Read more »
Will he have to show proof of insurance in court or will it be thrown out? There were no injuries but both cars totaled. The ticket said the offense was "stop sign". It also says he does not need to appear in person. Can this be thrown out without showing proof of insurance?
answered on Feb 2, 2022
Tickets with incorrect names on them do not get thrown out. They get corrected. He is going to get a license suspension from the BMV for not having insurance.
We had purchased it together when my daughter was younger, 2 yrs ago her mama said she dropped it. I am having to pay all of my daughter's debts while her grandmother gets the life insurancepolicy
answered on Apr 19, 2021
It's a little unclear what happened here, but it sounds to me like grandma bought a policy with you as beneficiary, later canceled that policy, and bought a new one with her as beneficiary. If that's the case, its her money. Were you paying any premiums? Do you have the policy documents?
My cousin passed away from cancer. Over 1 year later, his wife received a Bill from a large cancer treatment center. She had great insurance. He was receiving experimental treatment. The bill was denied because it was above usual and customary. $71,000

According to recent Ohio case law, a creditor must deliver their claim to the estate's representative within 6 months of date of death. The cancer treatment center's claim should be denied.
Is there statute of limitations no other case required me to carry a sr-22 there hasn’t been any other offenses since 2010 no felony cases
answered on Dec 14, 2020
Statutes of limitations are time limits on the government bringing a case against you. They have nothing to do with the consequences once that occurs.

An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. It could depend on your capacity and role in the matter. If you are insured by a carrier, you may want to consult with their examiner or attorney for guidance. Good luck

An Ohio attorney is best qualified to answer your question, but you await a response for four weeks. As a GENERAL premise, absent any statutory requirements, it would probably be a reasonable time. The underlying principle is that a party against whom a claim is made should have opportunity to... Read more »

Your employer will not be liable to pay or waive the expense. It is your responsibility to ensure that your health care providers are covered under your employer's insurance plan. You can ask if your therapist or your insurance company is willing to work with you on payments.

It sounds like something your employer put in manually. It is not a standard abbreviation used on paystubs. I would ask you HR department.
I was involved in a not at fault accident on 08/17/2019 can i send the demand letter then after that is sent go to my primary doctor for my injuries from the accident?
answered on Sep 28, 2019
An Ohio attorney would know best about any applicable state laws here. But your question remains open for three weeks. As a general matter, there isn't anything to stop a claimant from doing that. But a fundamental issue that could confront such a claimant if the visit to the primary doctor is... Read more »

You don’t have to provide her with insurance but just not paying for it knowing she’s going to drive isn’t the best plan. First, it won’t get you off the hook for the loan. Second, it won’t cause the financing company to repossess the car. Third, if she wrecks without insurance, she could... Read more »
My mom is 70 years old and had let her insurance lapse (I had no idea it had). Apparently it has been a few months. I know that it is illegal to drive without insurance.

No jail. I'm assuming you had an accident. The other person or their insurance will ask for her insurance. If she doesn't have any they'll ask her to pay. It may be to her advantage NOT TO MAKE ANY AGREEMENT TO DO SO because she may be "judgement proof." It really makes... Read more »
She lied and we have same insurance and now they are talking about not covering damages. When cops got there she left too and they had to loom for her.

See if there is a camera at the intersection or any business has a camera that captures the intersection. It's where the experession "he said she said" comes from.
But if you weren't at fault, and have injuries, contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice--they give free consultations.

But you carried insruance that covered you for liability so you should be OK. If you want, get a consult from an attorney who handles citations. Bring proof that you had coverage through your company at the time of the wreck. Notify your company.
I did not know she was drinking and driving, also didn't know she never had insurance on it.

You need to contact an attorney in the area where the alleged charges were brought as soon as possible, if you have not done so already. The State has several options available to them on how to proceed, and you need an attorney versed in the law to discuss your options with you. This could be a... Read more »

You need to obtain the electronic mail to and from Gieco to determine whether policy was in effect. In addition, your previous insurance company may have continued the policy of insurance for a short period of time after the cancellation for non-payment.
