I have several properties in CO, each in it's own separate LLC with me as the only member of each LLC. Does having all the LLC's insured under a PERSONAL liability umbrella defeat the entire point of the LLC's, (which is to keep each property only individually "liable" and... Read more »

Hi there, generally your personal liability policy is not going to cover the properties owned by the LLC given that the LLC is not the insured on the policy. You would need to read the policy to be certain. An umbrella policy for all of them could be a solution if there was adequate coverage and... Read more »

answered on May 15, 2023
If the car was not owned by you and you did not give your late husband permission to operate the vehicle, I see no basis for liability against you personally for this crash. If you are sued, and the auto liability insurance company does not provide a defense to you, you can retain your own private... Read more »
I had an accident five months ago. It wasn't big so I didn't report it. But now I am being sued by the other driver for $8000 in damages. Can I still get help from my insurance company? Its American transit insurance company ATIC. Do they provide free lawyer in this case?
answered on May 12, 2023
Turn the lawsuit papers over to American Transit after making copies for your own records. Because of the time gap, you may be confronted with the argument that their rights to investigate the claim were prejudiced by the delay in reporting. Every carrier can be different in their tolerance for... Read more »

I recently obtained a car from a dealer in Miami Florida everything worked out and I got a loan approval from chase auto financing. It included GAP as per the dealer Chase wouldn’t provide me a loan without it. So that was on 1/2/23 of the year. I only drove the car for about a month or so and on... Read more »

You can file a lawsuit for breach of contract or for declaratory relief against both Progressive and Dealer Protection Loyalty. I'd sue both because the GAP company may be right and Progressive may have undervalued what it should have paid.

The friend fell through some dry wall. No injury claimed then but now mother of friend wants our insurance info from that time to file a claim. What should we do to protect ourselves? This is in Florida.
answered on Apr 13, 2023
I agree with Mr. Thorgaard, but you should also inquire, in a friendly way, as to what the injury issue is. Was she physically injured, and if so, what are the injuries, medical diagnoses and treatment, and at which medical offices? And why is the issue surfacing only after 2 years? And is there...

My little brother just got his license was already involved in a hit and run. The other driver took off before the cops were contacted and a report was never made because my brother panicked and he also left the scene of the accident. The damages are estimated to be around $2000.
answered on Mar 20, 2023
[Re-posting due to typo in prior post] You need to clarify your inquiry regarding "took off before the cops were contacted". Someone called 911 and gave identifying info, and then both drivers fled? Or the police were never called? The drivers can ID each other, or not? If no one... Read more »

I filed an appeal with my past insurance, and won.

If liability is disputed in intercompany arbitration will the insurance company notify the insured of the arbitrators decision?
answered on Dec 9, 2022
In a typical automobile liability insurance policy, the insurance company has both the right and the duty to defend the insured driver.
It is not typical in intercompany arbitration for the insured to be notified of the award
