Q: I was rear ended by a drunk driver. He never gave his insurance to me or police. Is it legal for me to call/ go see him?

Most likely the hospital will have a Lien on your settlement monies. It really depends on the specific laws of your state. Hospital lien laws are very powerful here in my state of Colorado. You would have to look at the hospital lien statute and laws governing that statute in your state.
