Do not believe what the adjuster is telling you. Contact a NJ lawyer for representation. Damages for pain and suffering are allowed in NJ; however, NJ is a comparative fault state, meaning that you must not be more than 50% at fault for the accident, and your percentage of fault will reduce your...View More

A Maryland attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal. It's going to be difficult for any attorney to offer meaningful guidance on something of this complexity without seeing the file and the terms of the insurance coverage. If...View More

If you do not have an attorney, then I certainly recommend that you hire one at this time to assist your in either enforcing the settlement agreement and/or reaching an alternate resolution-----a lot of times the insurance company will not proceed accordingly without an attorney on the other side.
the insurance company is trying to subrogate against me for almost 20k and are not willing to work out payment plans under $900+ per month, which i’m unable to afford. Also, the other driver was my neighbor at the time and he only had his bumper and tailgate replaced as a result of the accident,... View More

You should speak with an attorney. The auto finance company may be having some internal issues that you do not know about. Additionally, because you're paying on a vehicle that is totaled, the finance company is causing you to incur economic damages which you may be able to recover.
My benefits and payroll are administered by a 3rd party (Gusto). Their ‘employee dashboard’, or portal, or whatever verbiage they use for their online thing, shows me as covered. However, when I attempted to add my wife to my coverage, I learned that I was no longer insured.
Have you raised the issue with your employer or with Gusto to see if the discontinuation of your health insurance was an error? If you cannot get the issue corrected, you may have a claim under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and should contact an attorney in your area to...View More

The language has to be in the policy. Demand that your insurance agent provide you with the exact provision that precludes your claim. In my experience, however, insured owners generally cannot recover for their own negligence under their policy, with collision coverage being the only insurance...View More
