    Depending on the law of your particular state, you are not necessarily required to call the police following an accident. However, many states do require you to call if there are injuries. As a practical matter, it typically makes sense to call the police so that the accident can be documented, especially if the chances are high that you may have a claim filed against you. Additionally, many police departments will allow you to come into the police department and fill out a report of accident...

    There is no hard-fast rule for the amount of non-economic losses as compared to special damages. Are there any aggravating factors in your favor (e.g., other driver was texting, DUI, etc.)? If not, and there are no no-lasting problems, then insurance companies will generally offer slightly more than the medical bills to resolve the case. I wouldn't be surprised if their top offer pre-suit is less than $5,000. Again, each case is fact specific and a lawyer in your area can provide more...

    If you have valid insurance at the time of the wreck, your insurer should provide a defense for the injury claim, which should include a civil lawyer. You will be obligated to cooperate with the insurance company in defending the case, meaning you must be responsive to their requests for information. In the event you are assigned a lawyer, you will need to remain in contact with the lawyer and help them in defending your case, which includes attending depositions and trial. Your insurance...

  4. When you receive a settlement from an auto accident, are you responsible for the medical bills, or is the insurance company?

    The terms of the settlement release that you signed in exchange for the check you received dictate whether you are responsible. Oftentimes the insurance company will require you to pay all outstanding bills out of any settlement, and will require you to reimburse them if you fail to do so. In addition, it is your responsibility to reimburse Medicare for any benefits it may have paid on your behalf. In the event your own health insurance provider paid benefits on your behalf, you may have an...

    That may be the top offer the insurance company is willing to pay before a lawsuit is filed. If you are not pleased with the amount being offered, you can ask your attorney to file suit and hope to recover more at trial. There are a number of factors to consider before filing suit, and you should speak with your attorney about the concerns you've raised.

    If by "file" you mean notify your insurance carrier of an accident with a hit-and-run driver, you must act immediately as most insurance contracts require immediate notice of a potential claim. Some insurers give customers as little as 14 days to notify them that you have been involved in a wreck. You should carefully review your insurance contract to see what is required and, to be safe, be sure to call the insurance carrier letting them know of the wreck. You should also confirm the notice...

    If she hasn't already done so, she should notify the insurance company for the car she was driving. Typically, defense counsel will be assigned to her to defend her in case the other driver files suit. Given that your niece was injured and there is an eyewitness who claims the striking driver ran a red light, it would be worthwhile to consult a personal injury lawyer to investigate a possible claim against the striking driver. Oftentimes, personal injury lawyers will provide a free...

    Unfortunately, that experience is typical with insurance companies. In Georgia, assuming the driver was a permissive driver, there should be insurance coverage for the girl that hit you. Your best bet is to contact an attorney who can get your case moving. Oftentimes these matters get resolved short of filing a lawsuit, but an attorney will cut through the insurance company's BS and help get your situation resolved more quickly.

    It appears you have a valid workers' compensation claim against your own employer if you were injured on the job. Your employer must furnish your medical care and lost wages, if any. You should consult a workers' compensation attorney in your area who can assist you with this aspect of your case. Concerning a case against the cleaning company, that is a tougher case given your own knowledge of the wet floor and the fact that you had turned your head immediately beforehand. While not...
