You have a duty to cooperate in your claim. What that entails depends on the nature of the claim and what they are asking you to release. If this is an auto claim and they want to know if you were texting and driving, it would make sense for the insurer to ask about text messages. In that case,...Read more »

Are you aware that you are asking this question of California attorneys? Most lawyers admitted to practice in the state of California may not be licensed to practice in Colorado, and consequently should not offer you advice based on California law.
I was involved in a car accident that i was not at fault. However, my auto insurance has not taken responsibility of my claim. It has been a while and I've tried contacting them but thus far i haven't gotten a response. I want them to pay for my totaled car and my ignored injuries. They... Read more »
You will have to call PI attorneys, or email them, directly. Attorneys are not allowed to contact you or solicit your business. If anyone responds to your post in this manner, run in the other direction. You do not want attorneys who break rules representing you.
I sold the vehicle, I had them sign their name and everything necessary on the pink slip, as well as my signature to release it, but forgot to remove and take the release of liability. The person has caused damages worth 20k yet I am liable. I have records of the conversation leading up to the... Read more »
Although insurance follows a vehicle, the driver is typically the person who is "responsible" and will be the named defendant in any lawsuit. Said another way, unless there are independent allegations against you (like you sold a defective vehicle etc...) you shouldn't be a party to...Read more »
There are so many variables in this it’s hard to answer. The case will be handled in the juvenile courts. There certainly will be some very stiff punishments and more so if someone was injured. There will a significant license suspension of at least a year. Likely to be charged with multiple...Read more »
I got a letter from my neighbors insurance co recently saying, basically, "You owe us $6543 for damage you caused to our policyholder." First, they know no details about the fire but say I caused the damages. It was caused by a soundbar in my bedroom that caught on fire with no warning... Read more »
Unfortunately, there is no "quick fix" type of response here that would address your issue. Handling the matter would likely require an investigation (since none was conducted) to assess the level of damages. Left to run its own course, one possibility is that the carrier could ultimately...Read more »
If my parents passed away and there was no wheel and they had insurance And my older brother kept all the money and he was supposed to split it between all of his brothers and sisters But he didn’t do that if he kept it off I need to see what I can do about that
I hope that doesn't happen. It looks like you're asking about a will, and your question remains open for a while. You could try reposting in the Probate and Estate Planning sections. Hopefully, your question would have a better chance of being picked up by one of the attorneys there who...Read more »

Without seeing your insurance company's correspondence, your application, accident documentation, one can only guess what is happening here. It might be that the other driver wanted to be nice and handle the matter as a first-party claim, after which her carrier's subrogation department...Read more »

If the claim was for personal injuries (like uninsured motorist), many attorneys will take such a case on contingency. That means they get paid a percentage of what you get from the insurance company. If the claim is for property, it is more likely you will have to hire an attorney on an hourly...Read more »
It's possible part of your question was inadvertently left off. An attorney would need additional information about the scope of the matter and state laws you mention on which you are contemplating an appeal. You could try reposting.
Lack of insurance has nothing to do with who is at fault. If the other party is at fault, lack of insurance will only affect your ability to recover pain and suffering damages if you pursue a personal injury claim. You will only be able to recover economic damages (medical expenses, property...Read more »

No one can answer without reading the policy, knowing the facts underlying the claim, and reading the declination letter from the insurer. However, "actual ownership" under the meaning of the policy is probably the meaning set forth in Vehicle Code 5600(a).
