I noticed something a little off about the paint job after few weeks after purchase but thought it was the effects of the paint. Getting my... Read more »
Sorry for your issues. Start by opening up a "DMV Investigations" inquiry into what happened. They will put pressure on the selling dealer to get to the bottom of this. Then contact an auto fraud attorney, who should review at no charge or for a low fee and if s/he takes the case should...Read more »
I was on my way to work and it was night time/early morning. I drive the same road every day and there has never been a fallen tree in the middle of the road. Some street lights dont work. Someone should have reported the fallen tree before the accident.
It is possible. However, claims against public entities are difficult. There are legal protections called "governmental immunities" that apply to them and don't apply to private parties. There is also a very short statute of limitations (time limit to file a claim) of only 6...Read more »

Every case is different, so there is no set amount of time that every case takes from the time of settlement to disbursement of funds. If you have Medi-Cal, the attorney needs to find out how much Medi-Cal paid to your medical providers and needs to get a final letter from Medi-Cal saying what...Read more »
It's not entirely clear to me if your case has been settled yet, or not. If it has already settled and all that is left to do is to agree to the language in the release and sign it - at that point it will be difficult, likely impossible, to renegotiate the settlement.
Whether and what to extent the other party is obligated to compensate your property damage depends on the facts and circumstances of the collision, which we don't know. Did you pull off the road completely? Did you turn on your flashing hazard lights? Did you attempt to warn oncoming...Read more »

Your feelings about what is fair are not important, nor is your work status. You are liable for the amount of damages you caused.
