  • Can the court overrule the arbitration results for the two insurance companies involved in a car accident?

    1) If the liability in a car accident is disputable, and finally the two insurance companies go to arbitration and the percentage of fault is decided, then later on an injured passenger decides to sue the drivers (or one of them), can the jury re-...

    Nathanael’s Answer

    These are good questions regarding how to apportion fault. As was previously mentioned the property dispute between the insurers should not affect your claim. For your second question, yes the injured passenger can choose to only sue one of the drivers. However, you should consult with a local attorney regarding the division of fault amongst the drivers. They will be able to explain exactly how such a suit which omits one of the guilty parties would likely conclude. Best of luck.

    Nathanael’s Answer

    It sounds like you need medical attention. It is quite normal for pain to arise a few hours or days after an accident. Consult with your physician and explain what happened. Afterwards, contact a local attorney to review your case. Slip and fall cases are subject to the laws of each state and may have more complications. Use Avvo to find counsel and schedule a free consultation. Best of luck and get well.

    Sounds like you may make a personal injury protection claim for the treatment of your injuries and lost wages. However, making a claim against the other driver's insurance will require more work since you were found at fault. Nevertheless, do not take the officer's assessment of fault as gospel. There may be factors that were missed at the scene. Contact a local attorney for further guidance.
