Even though im licenced in your state i will limit my answer to my role as a counselor and not a lawyer dispensing legal advice. Hopefully this will be helpful, and not useless to you.

As Mr Rothstein noted week ends count, except when the last day to answer is a weekend or holiday. That being said, if you are late send your answer anyway, asap. Opposing counsel may not object if its only a few days late. In any event, no judge is going to give a default against you if you are only few days late.

You must immediately notify your insurance carrier, the carrier from the date of the accident, not your current company.

While i generally agree with the statements of other counsel, i would add a few things.
