    Hi: In Ohio a driver can be liable under these circumstances, but only if he or she was negligent in entrusting or loaning the vehicle to the user. Example: I lend you my car to buy a gallon of milk and you negligently crash into another car. If you as the driver were competent to drive/ no reason for me not to withhold the keys, I am not liable for your driving negligence. However, if you as the driver had a history of traffic offenses, like multiple DUI's, suspended license, etc and I knew...

  2. What documented information must the claim agent/ insurance company give me when sending my medical bills to a peer review.

    If it's the at fault party's insurance company, no. Information and documentation is a 1 way street: you provide all the info, and they frequently nitpick it and then often claim "we're not allowed to share that documentation with you." If its your own insurance company, you may have more luck in obtaining the report. But no matter which company it is, this "peer review" stuff is often pre-determined and based on computer algorithims that tell the adjuster what is "reasonable treatment" for...

    I would not even return the call of any "consultants" who hunt you down like that. Be VERY wary of going down that road. Do you have any kind of auto insurance that includes medical payments coverage? Check your policy to see...

    Hi: Hope you're feeling better after that wallop. You have a decision to make. Giving the adjuster employment info (position, salary or wage info, time off from work, etc) is not a bad idea in and of itself. But it's part of a process of you giving up a whole lot of info (including your social security number, which you should NOT give up no matter what their "company policy" says) in exchange for them "evaluating" your situation and hopefully being fair with you sometime down the road. That...

    Hello: My first question in reading what happened to you is: what were your injuries? Many times, it's a HORRIBLE idea to settle your case with any insurance company, especially your own, after a crash. Occasionally, it isn't such a bad idea, if you were really not injured and had no real treatment. But every case is unique and different. I wouldn't do anything until you talk to a lawyer. Hope this helps and best of luck to you!

    Yes you can--in theory. But you don't want to put the cart in front of the horse just yet. First you have to navigate the claim with your own insurance company. I foresee some minefields ahead on that score if you continue to go it alone. In 25 years of handling insurance claims, I have heard "I'm calling you because I was in an accident and got nowhere with my insurance company" way too many times. I even wrote a book about all the "things" that can happen. Just go to www.n-wlaw.com and...

    Hi: I'm sorry to hear about what happened. If you live in Ohio there is a 2 year statute of limitations for bringing a wrongful death lawsuit. Your statute of limitations may well have expired--there is an exception for fraud but that's about it. The only way to know this for sure is to call a qualified malpractice attorney in the Dayton area and inquire just to be sure. If nothing else you'll get the peace of mind that you looked into it. Best wishes.

  8. Ohio medical law re:dismissal of patient. Dr states that Ohio Law does not require a reason? Is that true? We have no idea why

    My answer is not so much legal but practical. First, call the doctor's office and simply ask: "what is going on? Why are we being dismissed as patients?" there may be legitimate reasons--the doctor may have been suspended (and didn't want to make this known), he may have retired and chose not to disclose this for whatever reason, etc etc. Make sure you write down the name of you you talked to and when. Second, ask for a copy of your records, either over the phone and/or in writing. You'll...

    Hello: Absolutely contact the prosecutors office. Get an accurate estimate of your car damages. Find out when his Pre-trial hearing is and show up in person to present the the estimate to prosecutor/court. I would also contact The Ohio Victims Of Crime. You may be able to make a claim and you can do this without an attorney. Finally, why won't your insurance cover this? Because you don't have collision coverage, or because they have denied coverage, claiming it is a hit/skip? If it's the...

    Let's back up a minute. 1st question: is your car worth more than what's left on the loan? If so, the insurance company owes you that amount! Example: car is worth 6K and you owe 4K. They owe you 2K. Gap insurance is supposed to cover the gap between what you owe and the car's value. Ex: your car is worth 4K and you owe 6K. The insurance company would owe you 4K and gap insurance would kick in and pay the 2K loan balance. Having said all that, whether you can achieve what you want to achieve in...
