Pasadena, MD asked in Personal Injury for Maryland

Q: How can I make the other insurance company pay, when the driver hit me making a wrong turn and won't respond to calls

I was on a car accident the lady made to wide of a turn other driver was making a left turn into a two lane road. Made it too wide and hit my car (I was on the right lane). Now her insurance company says they won't pay because they can't contact their customer. That I must have my insurance pay. How can I sue her insurance company or her. That will count against me if I make a claim and I already have a claim where I was at fault. This happened in Maryland.

A: Consult an attorney right away. If the other driver is at fault you are entitled to be paid by their insurance company even if they can not contact the driver. That is their problem.

A: You have some options. If it has been more that 30 days, you may wish to file a claim with the Maryland Insurance Administration regarding the failure to contact you. If not, you can always file a claim for property damage with either the circuit or district court, depending on the amounts claimed.
