    Your insurance company has a duty to defend you and will hire an attorney to represent you in the case. If at some point you believe there is a conflict of interest between you and your insurance company, you may want to hire personal counsel to advise you of your rights. However, based on the facts presented, it doesn't sound like you have a situation where you should be concerned about your insurance company representing your interests.

    I agree with Glenn and Mary. Counties have sovereign immunity, and it is not waived by the purchase of insurance, except for claims arising out of the use of an automobile. County employees can be sued, but they can only be held liable for a violation of what is called a ministerial duty (as opposed to a discretionary duty). This is a very high standard to overcome.

    You need to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible for a free consultation. It is important to locate all available liability coverage for the driver who hit you. For example, did they own the car? If they didn't, do they have their own coverage that may apply to them if they were driving someone else's?

Once you are able to prove negligence, you have to prove damages. Because medical malpractice cases are so expensive, the damages generally need to be fairly high in order for an attorney to justify the economic risk of...
