    I would recommend that you reach out to Geico and to the attorney that Geico appointed for you to defend your interests in this matter and make sure you convey to them in no uncertain terms that you desire Geico to resolve the claim within the policy limits if at all possible. In my experience, many insurance companies will generally attempt to stonewall a claim and this gives rise to a risk for a verdict in excess of the policy limits. However, your insurance company has an obligation to you...

    First I would recommend that you contact your attorney and schedule an appointment to sit down and have any questions that you have not had answered answered. Please do try to be patient with your attorney because often attorneys are very busy and they don't realize that they have failed to answer all of your questions. I would make sure that you make an effort to set aside time with this attorney to get your questions properly answered. With regard to how long does it take, after a...

    I urge you to contact an attorney to discuss this matter. I'm worried about how this will work out for you without the assistance of someone who does this all the time. There are plenty of good personal injury attorneys here on Avvo, and although they charge a one third contingency, studies have shown that claimants receive on average 3.5 times more when they are represented. The reason they receive more is that the insurance company does this all the time and has a huge advantage in reducing...

    If you are negotiating with the defendant's insurance company to settle a claim, with a few exceptions their policy limit is the most you can get in a negotiated settlement with them. If your Under Insured Motorist coverage is greater than their policy limit you could get additional coverage through your own carrier.

    In a single vehicle crash, as the driver who lost control of the vehicle due to icy conditions, you would be unable to bring a bodily injury claim against your own insurance carrier. You could bring a PIP claim to get your medical bills paid because PIP provides coverage regardless of the cause of the accident. You could potentially bring a workers compensation claim, but you would need to consult with a worker's compensation attorney as this is a very fact specific determination based on the...

    It is difficult to evaluate whether this was a fair figure without seeing all of the medicals and incident facts. It is not unusual for juries to attribute part of the liability for the happening of the incident on the person who fell, even under the best of circumstances in a slip and fall trial. My concern would be that the $60,000 in damages may not be adequate for the damages that your husband sustained. I would recommend discussing your concerns with your attorneys as soon as possible....

    I'm sorry to hear about that. Sounds like a terrible injury which could have easily been avoided if the hotel employee was just paying attention. In addition to current and future medical expenses, the damages for which you can be compensated include the pain and suffering you are going through and will go through in the future, any loss of income you may sustain, and the impact on your quality of life and activities caused by the injuries. It is important that your attorney conduct an...
