Unless your causes of action are based on bad faith or other theories against the carrier, motor vehicle accident lawsuits are generally against the wrongdoer. In most states, this means the operator and registrant are named in the suit. If you have additional details that aren't included in...View More

Yes, the insurance company can stop paying if you did not elect to continue your health insurance after losing your job. You do have 105 days from the date your employee health coverage ended to complete and submit your COBRA Election form with your premium payment. Your employee health coverage...View More
It is unclear from your question whether any claim of child abuse has been lodged, and further, whether the photo somehow includes a child whose custody is at issue. Evidence takes many forms both in civil matters and in family law cases. If a photo is properly authenticated (taken at the time...View More
Was wondering if this is an all encompassing clause? My house became contaminated by some sort of fumes related to criminal activity as some squatters/drug dealers moved into a nearby abandoned house and cooked up something that got into my vents and the whole house. I've dealt with the police... View More

Your legal rights and responsibilities depend heavily on who was at fault in causing the collision and resulting damages. If there is no agreement on this fundamental point, you will need to file a lawsuit so that a judge or jury can make that determination.
In this case other party ran a red light resulting in collision accident, but claim was denied by at fault driver insurer in that there was no witness at the scene- but never deny the fact that the other driver ran a red light!
other party claimed couldn't speak English and Police... View More
Texas does not allow a direct action against another driver’s insurance company. Sue the other driver directly. The other driver can then demand that his insurance company defend him and indemnify him from any judgment.
Our JP courts have jurisdiction up to $20,000. If the damage to...View More
I suspect police will tell you this is a civil matter. Because such a small amount of money is involved, a civil claim for this amount falls within the jurisdiction of Texas justice of the peace courts. Such courts handle “small claims” where the amount in controversy is less than $20,000....View More
My medical records related to auto injuries keep 'disappearing'. Ive been denied medical treatment for auto related injuries and constantly undermineded without any explanation. Now that I know, my insurer is admitting they made identification errors during the claims process and is fully... View More
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. It isn't clear why false allegations were made against you - unless you mean the matter was escalated to a SIU (Special Investigations Unit). It looks like there could be a number of issues to sort out here -...View More
Fortune 100 employer, ERISA policy. Sent written requests to Sedgwick 3x, 1st was 11/22. Will not return my calls. Employer states Sedgwick provides copy of policy/Summary Plan.

Under ERISA, the plan administrator (usually your employer) is required to provide plan documents to you within 30 days of your request. With both your employer and the insurance company refusing to provide you anything, you may need to get an attorney involved. Feel free to contact my office and...View More
I have two full time jobs and have full health insurance through both BCBS and United Healthcare. Both are refusing to pay because each claims i am primary on another policy. Each is trying to subvert themselves as secondary under ther other. This seems illegal
There are rather complex rules called coordination of benefits which address the situation when a patient has coverage under two health separate health care plans. These rules resolve which one is primary and which one is secondary.
It is definitely legal. There are a number of...View More
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It's possible that both vehicles in the accident being from the same family raised red flags. You could consult with an attorney to review the file. The carrier could be building evidence for a denial, they could...View More

What should my lawyer be doing to resolve this matter. The para legal said they did receive an email from the defense attorney to discuss the lawsuit before the deadline but she said she is working with my lawyers to figure out what is going on.

A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. In all fairness to your attorney, they may be working toward trying to discuss the claim. You mention the paralegal receiving an email from defense attorney. Based on these brief facts, no one here could say and no...View More
before passing away in Feb 2022. Prudential is telling me (her Executrix) that even though she started a claim and outlived her father, her estate is not eligible for the proceeds because the 1992 policy had an "automatic mode of settlement" that paid only the 3 living persons.
I expect the answer to your question lies within the language of the insurance policy itself. You would need to meet with an attorney and have him or her review the documents in question. If you are on good footing and the insurance company is in the wrong, then you will probably need to open an...View More
