Cases can go on for years. Treatment can go on for days, weeks, months, years, depending on the injury. It is common to not experience pain immediately after the collision, but when the adrenaline wears off, or you start to resume normal activities, pain surfaces. If you have insurance, notify...Read more »

I live in the state of California and I am wondering how does the insurance company handle situations where a minor is injured due to a auto accident How does the insurance company go about compensating personal injury to the minor
Normally, You must name a Guardian Ad Litem and file and serve the case within 6 months if you are suing a state government agency and within two years for a regular accident case. In the case of minors, you have special statutes of limitations and you should hire an attorney to advise you.
I was on my bike just leaving my house, it was on a tiny one way street that I was going the opposite direction on. He pulled out of a driveway turning right and I tried to avoid him, but he turned extra wide and didn’t see me or didn’t stop for whatever reason until he hit me. I was knocked... Read more »
Sounds like your fault. You were going in the wrong direction on the street. He was looking to his left, turning right, because that is the direction from which traffic would be expected. I suppose that you have an argument that he should have looked to his right as well because of the potential...Read more »
A Lyft driver (while driving a client to their destination) was going well over the speed limit, before, during, and after the collision. Instead of slowing down to yield to existing traffic (me). He tried to go around my car, by going into the oncoming traffic lane. When he tried to merge back, he... Read more »
I want to rent a car to drive Uber, but I am afraid that if I get into a bad accident, they will take my parents assets. I have been living in my moms place for 5 months, and I think my dad might still be claiming me as a dependent. I have schizoaffective disorder (similar to schizophrenia) but I... Read more »
There's a "Karen" in my office who thinks her car was damaged by a car that a dealership has parked in our work garage. They have around a 100 cars in there that they just move around from floor to floor once a week. She thinks it's illegal for them to use garage and that they are hiding the cars... Read more »

In California, his responsible is equal to his percentage of fault. If he is 100% at fault, then he is 100% responsible. If he is 50% at fault, he is 50% responsible, and so on. What you might actually recover can be limited by his insurance limits, his personal assets, and your...Read more »
Ive contacted the corporate office left several messages, contacted all the stores he could work at, left emails. Ive gotten no reply and no one who has been able to help me file a claim. He was in his company truck when he hit me.

I have dash cam footage that show it took him 5 secs to hit me after I stopped. He had to be going at least 20 mph at impact. It pretty much took out my middle and... Read more »
You must not ignore the summons. Turn it over to your insurance company right away, along with a copy of the form you filled out and turned in to the Department of Motor Vehicles when you sold it. Be sure not to miss any court deadlines.
I was hit by another vehicle, and that person's insurance, Farmers, took 3 months to determine that their driver was at fault. In that time, I took my car into the shop, and the damages were $9,900, which was over 80% of the value of the car ($11,100). I paid for the $9,900 in repair charges out of... Read more »
This is far too vague to answer. One could come up with any number of scenarios in which you and all your passengers are killed. That's probably not what you are asking, but fits the description of "worst case scenarios".
The driver of the other car did not report it to dmv..but the owner is filling a claim with a different insurance than he had at the time of the accident. Should I be worried? Do I need to respond to the harassing calls?
Just notify your insurer of the claim. If you didn't have liability insurance, then you will have to deal with it on your own, or hire an attorney to defend you. You can attempt to negotiate the amount, or you can file bankruptcy. Don't give anyone any money without getting a simultaneous signed...Read more »
I'm asking because it wasn't taken from me I let a friend use it and then he let his friend use the car and his friend was parked when the car was towed? I can't afford to get it out I live in a shelter and I have no money I dont want to lose the car
Would I be automatically at fault in this circumstance? My car is a 2018 Honda Civic and the other person’s car is a 1999 Nissan Altima. Both are total losses. We were both taken to the hospital for our injuries.
I was involved in an accident and my vehicle wasn’t on my insurance policy at the time. I was found at fault. One vehicles insurance totaled out a vehicle, in which I requested to be apart of the appraisal. Now they are wanting full payment even though they sold the salvaged vehicle. What rights...
