    The insurance company has been paid a premium so they need to work for you. Let your carrier know the details and your position in the matter. Be sure to ask for written status reports from your insurance company and there are cases where an insured gets sued because the insurance company doesn't do what your paid a premium for. You can consult with a private attorney should you feel that is necessary.

    Consider getting a lawyer. Many an injured person makes the mistake trying to handle their own claim. Even with hour own insurance company, you need to understand that the information you get may not be the best as applied to your own situation.

    All cases depend on the facts, but provide notice to your insurance company. Just because you are sued doesn't mean that the person will be successful. Ask questions to the insurance company and insist that they defend and protect your rights. It doesn't sound like you had an attorney to handle your own injury claim and it is always advisable to consider having and attorney to handle your injury claim. Perhaps in some cases representation can keep you away from these possible unjustified...

    I'm sorry to hear about your situation. As there are a number of lawyers in the Peoria area, consider consulting with a lawyer in your location. As general comment, the issue for you may be causation and the amount of damages. Consider whether your benefits have been delayed or lost. With any prior condition, you would need to prove your damages. Medical negligence cases are expensive to litigate and you should realize that some attorneys may have certain case requirements given the costs...

    Consider filing a complaint with the Illinois Department of Insurance. It will perhaps get the attention of a supervising person at that carrier. In my opinion far too many carriers try to get a person to make a claim with their own carrier instead of the responsible party and some call this "Claim Shifting."
