    Call or e-mail - he hit me from behind at 50 - 55 MPH. The guy (50) worked for his dad (81) and claimed he was off the clock and had nothing (everything was in his dad's name). My attorney said he only sues insurance companies and not civil suits....

    James’s Answer

    if 25k is all his available insurance the question is when it was tendered, and also whether or not you carry uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. the may be an issue of bad faith concerning the issuance of the 25k check. we would need more details on your case
