Therefore making it seem like i was uninsured. Me and the other driver agreed for me to pay half of her deductible ($250) to settle it. But now... Read more »
Without seeing your insurance company's correspondence, your application, accident documentation, one can only guess what is happening here.

3 weeks of stalls and setbacks, then abruptly tells us to go away. I have a signed contract but they will not fulfill terms and now are trying to force me to sign a termination release. Is this legal.....(never mind unethical)
It's not illegal in the sense that no crime has been committed. Whether or or not it breaches your contract depends on what the contract says about termination. You might have a claim for specific performance or breach of contract. You might not.

Injury that happened at a job not related to my company. At first the claim was denied and now they are settling with the person. This is ridiculous and I was wondering if I can sue state fund for settling without my consent or knowledge
The decision to settle belongs entirely to your insurer. You can file a complaint with the adjuster and he SVP of the claims dept. explaining your objection, and you can file a complaint with the insurance commissioner.
My employer filed my claim for industrial injury. The QME determined my injury was predominantly industrial on more than one occasion and that I was unable to return to work under no circumstances. This can also be supported by my treating doctors for treatment I recieve on a private basis.... Read more »
Sadly, a finding by a QME that you are Temporarily Totally Disabled for particular dates may not be enough to require the Adjuster to pay TTD. IF the employer is saying the injury is not industrial and the employer wants a trial to try to prove the QME got it wrong, the adjuster won't pay....Read more »
