    Do not assume the officer tried to contact the registered owner to see if he or she had liability coverage. They usually do not do this. Send the owner a letter asking him or her to notify their insurance company of your potential claim. Date the letter and keep a copy for your files. Not necessary to send the letter certified but if you do also send a copy by regular mail. Hopefully the owner will have liability coverage that will pay for your property damage and injuries. I'm including a...

    Talk to your attorney. This forum is not designed to be a place where cases are evaluated. Case evaluations are fact specific and NOT based upon available coverage. Once you have talked with your attorney about the value of your claim and how & why he or she has come to that conclusion, then you may want to consider getting a second opinion. However, if you do choose to get a second opinion get all of the relevant documents, i.e., medical records, at-fault drivers back ground info, medical...

    Turn a copy of this material over to your insurance company. They owe you a lawyer for your defense and coverage for any medical bills being claimed that were caused by the MVC. Your policy of auto-insurance provides for two types of liability coverage, one is for property damage claims made against you and one is for bodily injury claims made against you. The lawyer they assign to your case will be able to explain this situation further. Again, turn this over to your insurance company asap...

    Products liability cases are very complex and expensive. Even though you are the victim, you carry the burden of proof under the law to prove the existence of a defect and that the defect caused the crash. Also, preservation of the product is critical for expert examination. Consult with an experienced products liability attorney as soon as possible. Good luck and I hope you make a good recovery from your injuries. I have attached a link to our web site where you can find more info about...

    With this kind of injury and medical complications you should have at least consulted with a WC atty before now. This forum is too limited to give you any real meaningful advice on your complicated situation. Generally, WC allows for a second opinion if you disagree with you doctor but you really need to consult with a WC lawyer in your area asap to see if that is really an option at this point. AVVO.com is a good resource to find an atty in your area. good luck.

    I suspect the other driver's insurance company is GEICO. They do this a lot to try and discourage claimants. Yes, Alabama law recognizes contributory negligence as a complete defense but they try to twist this into all kinds of reasons for denial. "Should've hit brakes sooner," "Could've swerved to miss," "Should've hit horn," are all assertions I've seen by GEICO to try and argue contributory negligence. Consult with an experienced auto-crash atty in your area. AVVO.com is a great way to...

    Pursuing a product's liability case against an auto-manufacturer is a very expensive undertaking. Expert witnesses are required to prove a defect and that the defect caused the injuries. Because these experts are considered independent they can not work on a contingency fee and must be paid up front regardless of their opinions. Since many Plaintiff attys advance these type expenses and only recover these expenses if there is a recovery for the victim, you would probably have a hard time...

    All policies of automobile insurance issued in Alabama must provide for uninsured motorist (UM) coverage unless specifically rejected on the application. In adition you may have medical payments coverage under your policy (med-pay). Both of these coverages can help with personal injury claims but are not applicable to your property damage claim. Please consider consulting with an expereinced auto-negligence attorney for more information. Most injury attorneys do not charge for consultations....

    Alabama is still a pure contrib state meaning that if you negligently contributed to the accident then you recover nothing. However, it is the insurance companies burden to prove you were speeding and that your speed proximately contributed to the collision. If you are contesting the officer's conclusion about your speed, I would write him/her (date the letter and keep a copy for your records) and explain why you disagree with his/her conclusion. If you have a witness who can verify you were...

    If you know or can identify the driver then yes you may have a viable liability claim even if there was no contact. If after using reasonable diligence, you can not identify the at-fault driver, then you may have an uninsured motorist claim for your personal injuries under your auto-insurance policy. In Alabama, unknown or phantom vehicles that cause an accident are deemed "uninsured" and no contact is required. I've attached a link to our law firm publication on motor vehicle collisions...
