I was wondering if I had to provide the arbitrator with the transcripts of the phone call I had with my insurance company about the accident? The guy tried suing me and when that wasn't working out he decided to take things to small claims.
A California attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could depend on the court. If you're in small claims, it suggests there are probably no injuries. If it will take time to order and retrieve the transcripts, it could be up to the court. In general...Read more »

It depends on how you own the property, as joint tenants or as a tenancy in common. If you are joint tenants, then a judgment creditor cannot likely place a lien on your home. The homestead exception applies only if the judgment debtor files for bankruptcy protection, in which case the home she...Read more »

In answer to your question, the owner of the vehicle has the diminished value claim. If you did not own it since you leased it, you do not have a diminished value claim. That said, if I misread your post and you did own the vehicle at the time of the wreck, then you should be able to assert a...Read more »

Non-parties don't have to answer interrogatories. The witness can sign a statement under penalty of perjury, if willing, or you can serve a deposition subpoena, hire a court reporter, give notice to the opposing party, and take the deposition of the witness. I would not recommend that you do...Read more »
The road was clear to go across to the 3rd lane. We have at least 3 witnesses that all said the car that hit us was racing another car and hit us going at least 90mph. Is there any way we could be considered at fault?
Likely not. Vehicular is failing to act as a reasonable and prudent driver would act under the circumstances. It appears that you were following all traffic laws and rules, while the other party was not. Therefore, you would likely not be found liable; and the person who hit you likely would.

This happened in January and I just found out because I got a letter/bill from their insurance company. My ex doesn’t even have a valid DL. Neither my son nor I new about... Read more »

the insurance adjuster offered me $700 and a $1000 For future medical cost and I told him I was in pain due the the accident and I am in recovery from surgery before the accident and he said I call you next month when you feel better. Is that correct? I didn’t accept the offer.
Yes, the insurance company needs to ensure that you have recovered from your current complaints before they can settle your injury claim. They will also need to see your doctor bills/reports regarding possible future treatment you may need in order to finalize your future medical payment claim....Read more »

In order to answer the question, it requires more information such as if there was a broker/agent involved as well, the policy language, any autopay agreements, etc. However, I will say that an insurance company is obligated to provide notice of cancellation due to non-payment of premium, pursuant...Read more »
