  • Does a lawyer have a duty to report the client health insurance about the car accident?

    Does a lawyer have a duty to report the client health insurance about the car accident?

    Christopher’s Answer

    I think you are asking if the health insurance paid some of a car accident bills whether the lawyer has to communicate with the insurer about what they are claiming in reimbursement rights. It depends on the nature of the health insurance plan and the strength of those rights. Since a lawyer can be sued for not protecting properly asserted reimbursement rights, the lawyer can override your wishes to avoid reimbursement. So, no duty, but the lawyer has the right to do it to protect you and himself.

  • Do I have a personal injury case?

    My grandson was injuried in the school bathroom by another student. He had back,shoulder and arm pain.

    Christopher’s Answer

    The school will be immune from suit but he can file a claim against the child through the parents home insurance policy up to a statutory limit. Only worthwhile if the injury is substantial. Make sure he school knows if the incident so the student can be disciplined.

  • What happens from here? Who and what is covered

    I drove my boyfriend's car to the grocery store and another driver rear-ended his vehicle while I was on my way. I am not listed on his insurance policy (American Family Insurance), and I respectively have Allstate. I just moved in with him about ...

    Christopher’s Answer

    You are covered under boyfriends insurance so long as you were not a regular user of the car. Whoever caused the crash is at fault and their insurance should deal with it. If the other insurance denies responsibility and your boyfriend has collision coverage, then you can get the car fixed through that and boyfriend insurance will go after other driver insurance through arbitration without your input. If there are injuries, this gets more complicated. Go to my website and request a free copy of my book for more details

  • I was stabbed multiple times in my wife's house (we are separated). Can I file a claim against her home owners insurance?

    As a result of the stabbing, I was on life support for two weeks and hospitalized for over a month. I've had three surgeries and still recovering. My hospital bills exceed $450k, and of course the hospital has already begun collection.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Probably not. Insurance policies do not insure against intentional acts. A stabbing is intentional, the there is likely no coverage. Outside of medpay. I am sorry.

  • How do I find another lawyer?

    I am trying to find another lawyer who specializes in my area of concern, Bad Faith insurance and mold. I am finding it impossible to even get another lawyer to even hear my situation while I already have a lawyer but I don't want to release my ...

    Christopher’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    Stay with the lawyer. Mold cases are extremely hard to win and most lawyers won't take them at all. Compound that with the fact that no one wants to clean up another lawyer's mess and your lack of choices is clear. Make the best of the situation and appreciate that they took the case at all.

    Christopher’s Answer

    It all comes down to how long your dads policy says he has to add a new vehicle.
