Q: I was in a car accident in 2015 & I obtained a lawyer right after because the crash was the other drivers fault.
My vehicle ended up on the opposite side of the street. I was driving down a one way when the other driver came out from the side from a neighborhood and flew through the stop sign making my vehicle spin and end up on a stop sign and pole on the other side of the street i was unconscious for a couple minutes then came to it my vehicle was still running the dash of my car was on top of my lap i got out barley making out what happened at the moment because of shock then the other driver i remember coming up to me trying to say something then he was gone and i just sat on the ground. The older man who hit me claimed another driver was driving his vehicle which the car was really his elderly mothers car. Its been 3 years since my accident and still nothing has been figured out except recently they dismissed the man and his mother from my case saying they have evidence of a unidentified driver but there WAS NO other driver. Should i get a second opinion or is it too late in the process?
A: You want to be clear why they dismissed the other man. Generally it's left for the jury to decide but if the Court let them out the Court would have written a memo on it. However if you have uninsured motorist benefits it may not make a difference. You should sit down with your attorney to get an understanding of what is going on. If each driver in a chain collision can't agree there are problems and it isn't unusual for the case to take time. Sit down with your attorney then get a second opinion..
