If the other driver is truly uninsured then your uninsured motorist coverage will offer you protection up to the limits of the insurance. You can recover for medical bills, lost earnings, pain, suffering, etc..
The other driver is still responsible for wreck (assuming it was his fault) but the insurance you purchased to protect yourself from uninsured / underinsured drivers is potentially available to you.
If the incident happened the way it is described, your husband has no liability. A person must be determined to have been negligent before they can be successfully sued for damages. As you describe it, your husband did nothing wrong and therefore cannot be successfully sued.
Of course, there are two sides to every story. Sometimes more. :) If the bicyclist has a different view of the facts, he may file a claim but your liability insurance company will defend the case (meaning you don't...
Medical cases are extremely difficult, and made more difficult by the fat that TN requires that experts witnesses usually must come from TN or a state contiguous to TN. Thus, the better known the doctor the harder it is to find expert witnesses who are willing to testify against him/her. Plus, you are now pushing up against the one -year deadline for giving legal notice of the claim which will make it even more difficult to find a lawyer who can do a proper investigation and determine...
I am not sure what you mean? Jurors are subpoenaed to the courthouse to sit on juries on civil cases and I guess it is possible that is referred to as a "jury call." There is also what we call a "jury demand" which is a request by one party to a civil lawsuit to have a jury, rather than a judge, determine the facts in a civil case.
I hope this helps.
Your claim is probably barred by Tennessee's one year statute of limitations. You and your wife knew after the incident that the air bag did not deploy, and that fact was enough to trigger the duty to investigate and determine if there was a defect in the airbag and whether that defect caused any injury to you.
In addition, the vehicle is a 2001 and until Tennessee law any product liability claim must be filed within ten years of the time the product is sold to the first user or consumer....
You are responsible for paying any subrogation / reimbursement interest that arises under your health insurance policy and your auto policy and should not assume that the at-fault driver's company will fulfill that obligation for you. Nor should you let the company do so even if it offers to do so. It is your responsibility to see that it is done and thus you should do it.
There are some defenses to claims of subrogation under the law and, if you are attempting to settle this case on your...
If the medication was prescribed in Tennessee the claim your daughter has, if any, is governed by Tennessee law. Tennessee does recognize a cause of action for "wrongful life," but there are restrictions on the amount and type of damages that can be recovered.
These cases are very complicated and very dependent on the facts.
If she wants to pursue this matter she should seek the services of an experienced Tennessee medical malpractice (now known as health care liability) lawyer.
To be blunt, the insurance company can do whatever it wants to do. In Tennessee, here is no legal duty on the other party's insurance company to treat your fairly and, if they offer you an unfair amount of money, the only thing you can do about it is reject the offer, sue the other driver, prove the full amount of the loss, win a judgment, and then collect the money. You have no right to sue the insurance company for making an unfair offer. Whether going through all of this hassle makes...
You should consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney, preferably one from the greater Dallas area. Act quickly to protect your rights - the law has deadlines for taking legal action and failure to meet the deadlines will result in a loss of your rights.
Most attorneys will not charge for this type of consultation, but verify that via telephone or email when you contact the lawyer.
The fact that your registration on your vehicle was expired does not affect your ability to recover money damage for the damage to your vehicle or any personal injury you received in the wreck. This is true even if you received a citation for failure to have proper registration.
