Bell Buckle, TN asked in Civil Litigation, Insurance Bad Faith and Car Accidents for Tennessee

Q: I was involved in an accident with a motorcyclist. My insurance company left me under-insured though they knew about my

assets because they were covering them. Can I sue my insurance company to pay what I've been sued for? To add insult to injury, they provided me with a lawyer who did not defend me and was responsible for browbeating me into signing away all I have.(my home) in a mediation. I'm 85 years old and may end up homeless due to their bad faith.

A: You should make an appointment and see a lawyer. There are a lot of details that would have to be discussed before an answer could be given. Tennessee has a short statute of limitations - so don't wait. Most lawyers will do an initial consultation for free.
