A Tennessee attorney attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for four weeks. As a general matter, an insurance company will settle for the policy limits when it determines that it is a good business decision to do so.

A car with Mississippi auto dealer tags was uninsured with unlicensed 15 year old driver...driving who backed out of their driveway into our car that we bought the day before! They were not given any citations from officers. The damages to our car est. 13,050. Our uninsured motorist policy has... Read more »
If your insurance does not cover the whole amount of damages you'll have to file a lawsuit against the driver/parents to try and recover a judgment for damages. But you can't force the police to issue citations.
My grandmother owned life insurance policies on my grandpa and myself. We want to cash them out because they are horrible policies. They were supposed to transfer ownership to my grandpa but never did after we filled out the paperwork. Now they are saying we need all of my grandmother's heirs... Read more »
You did not state this, but it sounds like your grandmother has passed and there are things still in her name, such as these life insurance policies. You should contact a probate attorney to help you with getting those assets retitled. The type of process that will be needed will depend on more...Read more »

I have the insurance card with my name on it and... Read more »
As to the auto policy, you probably have no cause of action since you have no damages at this time. Unless it is provable it hurt your credit rating or something, there is no case. You could file a Declaratory Judgment action to get your name off, but you should just call the Carrier and complain....Read more »
I was held against my will at a local hospital for weeks while they drained my insurance and abused me. The hospital doctors used all sort of claims and lies to keep me there under a psychiatric hold. This removed all my rights as a patient as well as my civil rights. I believe they did this...

For the best guidance, you could check with a Tennessee attorney. But your question remains open for five weeks. As a general matter in most any jurisdiction, you could simply make a written request.

I've been with Progressive over 15 years. No accidents, no tickets and never late. Somehow I was late last month. I went to pay November early as I always do and it said canceled, I never received anything from them. They said they canceled because I was 15 days late. Due on 15th, claim they... Read more »
I received notice that my medical insurance premiums were going to almost double for 2018 even though I had no claims. Hired an insurance agent to help find affordable insurance. She informed us of gov assisted program to help pay insurance and asked us of our income of 2017 which was way lower... Read more »
This is something a Tennessee attorney could answer best because insurance is generally governed by state law. But your post remains open for three weeks. As a general matter, it's difficult to say without seeing all the paperwork, particularly the inclusion of provisions outlining the nature...Read more »
No, you have no contract with Allstate. The insurance co. is probably not a party, just representing their insured. You probably need an attorney who might file a Motion for Summary Judgment. I hope you have adequate proof of your medical damages.
If you're talking in the realm of accidents, many settlements do take place out of court. It could all depend on the case. If both sides are more or less aligned on who is at fault, they agree on their figures for reasonable damages, then they will likely settle out of court. If they...Read more »
If I understand your question correctly, I think you misunderstand the difference between your LICENSE and the vehicle REGISTRATION. these two things are not the same. Your license is for you only- it is the authorization that you can legally drive a vehicle ( ANY vehicle, even one you don't...Read more »
He was ticketed for straddling lanes and improper lane change. I'm I responsible for getting my vehicle repaired as I'm being given the run around by his insurance company. I was also told I'd be responsible for 20% of a rental or cab fees.
This is why you need to contact a lawyer after a crash. This sounds like the usual insurance baloney where they try to say you are 10,20.30% at fault based on---well, it's an "accident" so it's no-one's fault (until they are trying to soak you for contribution).
Your question has nothing to do with real property. Besides the roof condition, you must read your Insurance Policy. That Contract will control your rights. In the mean time find another Carrier now. Non Insurance is a Default under your Deed of Trust. It is very doubtful that after you get...Read more »
I had a accident in 2016 on a wet road and at fault for sliding across the road into another vehicle. I had insurance at the time and wasn’t notified that I would be in a lawsuit for the car I hit. This lawsuit was sent 2 years later but filed in 2017 4 days from making the accident a year old.... Read more »
If you had car insurance at the time of the accident, contact your insurance company to let them know of the lawsuit. They should protect you pursuant to the policy, which would include an attorney. If you did not have valid car insurance, you are on your own but should consider contacting an...Read more »
When I told the judge I wanted to fight the failure to yield left he gave me the option of going to traffic school since it was my first accident. The other cars insurance is now asking me to pay 5,000 dollars in damage. My car had more damage and my quote was way less then $5000. My insurance is... Read more »
Going to driving school may impact your ticket. But it doesn't impact who is at fault in the accident- unless you were found guilty. Then it might be admissible as to fault. I am assuming you pled not guilty and received diversion if you attended driving school.
Your question does not specify, but I assume this health insurance is for minor children? If he provides documentation that he has been turned down/does not qualify, then I would purchase substitute insurance. ( Its always better to have some health insurance in the event of unforseen medical...Read more »
I got into an accident no fault of mine. The other persons insurance company looked at my car and is now refusing to pay to have it fixed, or totaled whichever needs to happen. They said due to previous damage, that I was unaware of because when I financed the car, I was given a clean Carfax,... Read more »
You may have to bring a lawsuit against them to make the insurer pay for the damage. You can turn the claim in to your insurer to have the car repaired and your insurer may pursue the other company as well as your deductible.
If you had insurance that should cover the suit. Even if they say they aren't covering the event,you are being sued and they should cover you, and get you an attorney. That's what you pay insurance for. They will go after your girlfriend.You can also sue her for the loss of your car but...Read more »
Was gently rear-ended while driving on a busy but narrow 2 lane road. I pulled into a nearby driveway thinking the person who hit me would follow. He drove on by but I got his license tag. I examined the car and there was damage. Didn't know what to do so headed home and then called the... Read more »
