My insurance did not pay for his car repairs, I'm going to assume it was because I was not found at fault. I have less than 30 days to respond to a lawyers letter requesting a balance for the insurance. What should I do?

A Kansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for almost a week, and time is of the essence. Start by contacting your carrier and placing them on notice of the claim. It is generally the duty of an auto carrier to defend their insured against claims and lawsuits. Good luck

Read the terms of your insurance policy and your premium invoice. If you have full coverage, or if you paid for full coverage, you may be able to sue your insurance company.

If not, you may be able to sue your insurance agent for not obtaining full coverage despite your instructions to do so.
