    Each homeowners policy has various elements of coverage. One of them is medical payments coverage, which will pay on medical bills incurred as a result of an injury which takes place on the covered property. These medical payments are paid regardless of whether or not the homeowner is at fault (negligent) in causing the injuries. Liability coverage protects the homeowner and indemnifies him for any damages caused due to the negligence of the homeowner, up to the limit of the coverage he...

    It appears that you do not know exactly how workers compensation works. You do not have a right to sue your company, despite its financial problems. Your employer is immune from suit under the workers compensation statutes. You may be a person in need of vocational rehabilitation once you have reached maximum medical improvement.. I suggest that you contact a workers compensation attorney as soon as possible to help assure that you receive all the workers compensation benefits to which you...

    It is unclear to me why you underwent a deposition from the gas station's lawyer if no suit has been filed. Depositions are authorized usually only after a case has been filed at the Courthouse. I suggest that you hold a conference with your attorney to determine the exact status of your claim. Legal Disclaimer: If this information has been helpful, please indicate below.

    You can try, but if you are unrepresented, you may not have a lot of success. If you are sued for the damages, you will have an ability to obtain detailed information about the claim through the discovery process.You have learned a hard lesson here about going uninsured.You certainly can try to negotiate a resolution of this matter with the insurance carrier.It will cost them money to sue you.They may wish to avoid that expense and therefore compromise the claim with you.I wish you luck....
