  • Is the insurance company paying my medical bills on top of their offer for release of the claim.

    2012 I was a passenger in a vehicle that was rear ended while we were at a dead stop, we were very clealy not at fault. We filed a claim with the insured and sought assistance from a certain attorney. After 2 years of back and forth it was decided...

    Hard to say w/o more info but unless the insurance co. says "this plus your medical bills" it is probably just whatever the number is and you are responsible for the bills. Why don't you just get a new layer?

  • Do I have a case for emotional distress or negligence? The owner gave me her insurance information to file a claim.

    I was at a salon receiving an eye brow wax. The employee waxed off half my eyebrow. She did give me some filler to paint on every morning. I am deeply upset about this. The owner gave me the insurance companies information. What does this mean?

    Mark’s Answer

    You may have a case depending on the damages. Call a local lawyer to see if they can help before you call the insurance company.

    Mark’s Answer

    You are a little unclear but all wrongful death settlements and distributions need to be approved by the probate court where the estate was opened after a hearing with notice given to all interested parties. Make sure your current address is in the probate file and that you are listed as a surviving relative.

    It is hard to say in this kind of forum. You should call an experienced med mal lawyer who can decide whether to get the records after getting much more detail from you. There is a one year time limit in these cases so don't delay talking to a lawyer.

  • Can a car insurance company put an exemption in that says the insured and their passengers are not covered for injuries?

    Missed this change that occurred when I renewed my policy. Also is there a separate item that you have to add to your policy for so called "med pay". If so, this was never mentioned when I purchased my policy, otherwise I would have added it

    Not sure what you mean but you have to buy med-pay separately.

    More information is needed but your husband may have an Ohio Worker's Compensation claim which he should pursue and possibly a third party claim against one of the other parties. You can find a lawyer on Avvo. There are strict time limits.

  • Can an insurance agency take my truck without giving me an offer

    I was in a wreck on August . A lady ran a stop sign and hit me. No my truck is at a wrecker service and her insurance is telling that the longer it sits there the more they are going to deduct off the offer that I have yet to receive.

    Mark’s Answer

    If they want to move it at their cost maybe you should let them. Probably out to let your insurance handle it if you are getting a hassle.

  • If you have a car through a buy here pay here and it was totaled insurance won't cover it can you just give it back

    I have insurance but the driver is not covered under my policy apparently so my insurance will not cover damages I still owe more than its worth will they be able to sue me for the car if I give it back in ohio

    Mark’s Answer

    A permissive user is normally covered under insurance. Do you have an SR 22 bond or something? Is this person excluded under your policy for some reason? Assuming the person is not covered does your loan have pay-off insurance? Read it, some do. Otherwise, yes you still owe them the money and no you cannot just give it back.
