    Joseph’s Answer

    You should not be liable for hitting the vehicle in front of you under these circumstances. It sounds like you have a Worker's Compensation claim and a person injury claim. You should contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your options. Best of luck!

    Of course, a lawsuit can be filed against the at-fault party. However, that may not be the best course of action at this point. If the at-fault party does not have car insurance, you can file an uninsured motorist claim against your own insurance company if there is independent, corroborative evidence the the other driver was the proximate cause of the accident. Sit down with your attorney and ask your questions. Best of luck!

    Joseph’s Answer

    If your health insurance company pays for accident related bills, then your health insurance company can assert a subrogation claim against the liability insurance company to be paid back for these expenses. The liability settlement offer should include money to pay the health insurance subrogation claim. So as a practical matter, the money to pay back your health insurance company comes out of the settlement. Most settlement offers are "all-inclusive," meaning any subrogation claims are included in the settlement offer. Hope this helps. As others have suggested, sit down with your current attorney and ask your questions.

  • Should the insurance of the at fault person pay full price for my totaled car?

    My car 2009 cadillac dts. My insurance company paid me less than what i owe. I was told the at fault insurance should pay me full price. is this so?

    Joseph’s Answer

    The insurance company owes you the actual cash value of the car. If the outstanding balance of your loan is more than the ACV, the insurance is not required to pay it off. Check to see if you purchased GAP insurance from either the car dealer or loan company. GAP insurance will pay off the balance of the loan in the event you owe more than what the car is worth. Best of luck!

    I am so sorry to hear about your grandson. I agree with my colleagues that have already responded.

  • Can I file a 1st party diminished value claim when hit by an uninsured motorist?

    I purchased a used 2011 Honda Odyssey with 34k miles 2 months prior to the accident. An uninsured motorist struck my wife, resulting in over $14k in repairs. My insurance provider has been unhelpful when i inquired about a DV claim. I have r...

    Joseph’s Answer

    Take a look at your auto insurance policy. Because you are making a first party claim (a claim against your own insurance company), whether you can make a diminution of value claim will be controlled by the whether the language of your policy allows such a claim. Your policy is like any other contract that controls the rights and duties of the respective parties. If a DV claim is allowed, it will be in the Collision or UMPD coverage section of the policy. I would urge you to contact an attorney so the policy can be reviewed.
