    You should go to a lawyer who specializes in personal injury law. You should speak to the lawyer and make sure that you are comfortable with him/her handling the case. Most attorneys handle these cases on a contingency fee basis, so you would not pay out of pocket. It is good that the driver was drunk, because it might help if your auto policy is limited tort. Good luck.

    I recommend that you see a lawyer for a free consultation. If you were rear ended and have injuries, it is possible that you have a good case. Regarding medical bills, your car insurance will pay up to a certain amount. If you do not have health insurance, you can try to recover any outstanding bills from the person who hit you. A big issue will be whether you are full tort or limited tort. This will be a factor when determining whether you can recover for pain and suffering. See an attorney as...

    I am sorry to hear about this situation. There are many exceptions to limited tort, including when you suffer "serious injury;" the defendant vehicle is registered in another state; the defendant driver accepts ARD or is convicted of driving under the influence; when the person who is at fault intends to injure himself or another person; when the person who is at fault “has not maintained financial responsibility” as required by law; and when the victim is injured while occupying a vehicle...

    Take the complaint to your auto insurance company immediately. If you were not insured, you should contact a lawyer to see what your options are. You should act immediately. If you do not respond to the complaint, the plaintiff can get a default judgment against you. Good luck.

    I am sorry to hear about your situation. This sounds like a tough case for a number of reasons: 1. You were limited tort, which means that you cannot recover for pain and suffering unless an exception applies. 2. If you signed a release, you waived your right to pursue this further. I doubt any attorney will want to try to fight the validity of the release when it is a limited tort case. 3. You have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit, or your right to sue is waived....

    You should see a lawyer about this. There are many things to address: Did you sign a release agreement? Will the lawsuit be for breach of contract, property damage, or personal injuries? Why did you get paid directly from Defendant, rather than his/her insurance company? If you can sue in Pennsylvania, what counties have venue? Is small claims court an option? An attorney can only answer these questions after meeting with you and carefully reviewing the facts of the case. Good luck....

    You should contact your homeowners' insurance company immediately. The plaintiff's attorney might settle this with your insurance company before a suit is filed. If a lawsuit is filed they should provide you with an attorney. In Pennsylvania, the plaintiff does not provide a specific amount demanded in the complaint. They might come down significantly from $1,000,000 when negotiations occur. If there is a judgment over $300,000, then you might be liable for the amount owed over $300,000....

    I am sorry to hear about this situation. It is best if you stop posting publicly about this issue. What you post online can be used against you, even if you think it is anonymous. I recommend seeing an attorney in person for a consultation. Good luck. Tim Knowles
