    Colossus is a loathsome project set up by insurers to underpay and deny injury claims. You have already made a gigantic mistake in talking to your insurer at all. Every conversation will be used against you. On average, people without attorneys see results 70-80% worse than people who promptly retain counsel. You need a lawyer ASAP to assess and review your claim. Until you hire one, do NOT say a word to your insurance company and do NOT sign releases.

    There is no magic formula except one - claimants who do not hire a lawyer typically get offered 70-80% less than claimants with lawyers. So if you settle on your own, expect to be badly underpaid. Stop talking to the insurer, and have a lawyer evaluate the case. What you can get depends on whether you are dealing witha top line insurer or one of the bad ones like State Farm and Allstate, how strong liability is, how bad the injury was and whether there is permanent impairment, how...

    I am assuming you are now 18 (if not this answer applies AFTER you turn 18). You'll need to get a lawyer and be prepared to do some things that may rip a family apart. If the money was set up in the way most settlements are done, your mother could be guilty of a crime and you may have to decide between criminal prosecution and suing her. It is also possible she posted a bond, and you may collect from them (and they may go after her). The answer depends on many facts we don't have so sit...

    I am sorry your wife was hurt. Hopefully you did what every driver should do to protect their family and bought a high limit uninsured motorist coverage. If you did, your lawyer (and you need one immediately - do NOT delay in this) can likely file claims against your insurer. If you have medpay, that also will help. In some cases, although this is rare, the uninsured driver will have assets you can pursue. But it is very important that you have a lawyer from day one. Each day you go...

    Your post is very confusingly worded, but it sounds like you are likely the cause of the accident (following too close or improper passing), which would mean others may be suing you and you need to report it to your insurer to defend you. Because some of the post is so confusing, call a lawyer to discuss what happened and who has a case against whom, and do that before you talk to any insurer.

    You need to listen to your lawyer. Whether you must reimburse the insurer depends on the type of medical policy you have, and on many other factors. Your lawyer has this information and no one here does. But in many cases what he says is true.

    Unless you are his legal guardian or power of attorney you can't do anything. Your father should get a second opinion from a lawyer who can review all the facts.

    You're asking about the criminal end, which is up to the state and not you. You may want to speak to the county DA to determine their plans, but you cannot prosecute a criminal case. Whomever is her next of kin (usually her spouse and children, or if there are none, other close family members) need to see a lawyer, start a probate, and determine if a wrongful death civil case for damages should be filed. Damages in such cases sometimes can be large. Since time is running out (in a bit...

    Your case is NOT near settlement. You said "I've been going to physical therapy and am currently seeking other medical help due to having sleep problems and all types of stress since accident." Your attyorney would likely be committing malpractice if he tried to settle before even knowing all your bills and diagnosis (as future bills would not be covered). Be patient. If you push him now, he may quit your case due to very unrealistic expectations. No settlement talks should happen before...
