    This, sadly, is all too common. You could sue, but your lawyer is giving you very good advice. $25,000 is guaranteed money. So long as the insurance company offers that amount - which is the limits of the driver's policy - then they have absolutely no further obligation to give you anything else. That means even if you sue, you're only guaranteed $25,000 - not a penny more. You might get a JUDGMENT for hundreds of thousands, but it is VERY UNLIKELY that the person who hit you has that kind...

    Its a premises liability case. See a lawyer asap. Just because you fell doesn't mean you'll see any money. You'll have to prove liability and you'll need a lawyer to do that...

    Yes, very much so. Insurance follows the car unless there is an exclusion, a very specific exclusion (ie: joe smith is specifically excluded on this policy and this policy in no way covers him). I don't know why your adult child was driving your car, but you can be sued for "negligent entrustment". That doesn't mean that you'd ultimately be found liable for a money judgment, but yes, you could be sued.

    I'm sorry for the issues you're having. Since your statute of limitations is quickly approaching, I strongly recommend that you sit down with a lawyer and pay a little money for a quality consultation.

    You just identified EXACTLY what the insurance company will try to do. In Georgia the Defendant "takes the victim as he finds him" (most other states have this principle too). That means that the party who is at fault cannot legally mitigate/diminish their liability simply by pointing out that you had been hurt previously....but that does NOT mean for even a second that the INSURANCE company and the DEFENDANT will not try to make that argument (in fact you can count on them actually making...

    It doesn't matter if you can't afford to pay a judgment. The Plaintiff will get the judgment against you all the same. If the insurance is maxed at 25K, for example, and the judgment is for 100K, you are on the hook for $75k. You say, well, I can't pay that. It doesn't matter, the judgment is real. Once they get the judgment, they'll record a FIFA, and everywhere you go the Plaintiff's judgment will follow you. It can prevent you from getting loans, buying a car, and a number of other...

    No. Not in Georgia. If you are a plaintiff in a civil matter it's up to you to hire a lawyer. You are not entitled to one and you have no constitutional right to one (meaning you won't be appointed one). However, in Georgia if you are a corporate entity and file suit in a state court you MUST have a lawyer or else your case will be dismissed. That doesn't mean the court gives you a lawyer - it means they give you a limited amount of time with a deadline to privately hire one.

    Your insurance company will supply you with a defense lawyer. The plaintiff will try to prove damages and how much they're owed. Your insurance will pay the judgment up to your limits. You're responsible for damages that exceed your policy limits.

    Don't sign it. If the two of you agreed to a contingency, that's what the lawyer gets. Fire him/her and move on and hire another lawyer.
