call one local, though.
if there is an injury, and you were not at fault, most of us would accept the case on a contingency fee. That means the lawyer will only take a percentage of what he/she gets.

My insurance company had already found me 100% liable without the chp report being released
What type of lawyer handles this type of case?

Its not clear what you are asking. Your insurance company has a duty to defend (retain a lawyer on your behalf) and indemnify you (pay any settlement or judgment up to the policy limit). If your insurance company is disputing coverage, you need an attorney who specializes in handling insurance... Read more »

Defendants get to assert defenses. They have to prove them by a preponderance of the evidence. You are entitled to dispute the defenses. That happens at trial by testimony or other evidence. Since there has been no trial, you have no right to prevent the Defendants from claiming this defense.

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.
answered on Sep 20, 2022
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 »

I would have sued both of them in the same case, and if they wanted to blame each other -- let them. They are both responsible for what happened. As far as you're concerned, it does not matter how you allocate the loss.

realized now because of the city's inspector report. Therefore I submitted a claim to my insurer this month.
