    You were told right. Pre-existing condition cases are tricky because the insurance company tries to say the injury was not caused by the collision. You need an attorney that knows how to handle that issue. Many don't.

    They want to talk on the phone for two reasons. First, they can record you and they hope to get something to use against you, and second, they can lie on the phone and there is no record. If you have memory loss from this collision, why on earth are you trying to handle it on your own. Get a lawyer to help you. You will end up with more.

    They will defend you. That is the purpose of the insurance. AND you need to let them know you are being sued. If you don't let them know in time, then they do not have to defend you.

    We can't evaluate a case here, there are too many details. But you will probably do better with an attorney. You will not get punitive damages, but you may get damages for pain and suffering.

    I would have to see medical records and other things before evaluating the case. That is what a lawyer with experience can do. Frankly, trying to resolve it yourself has already made things more difficult. Find a board certified personal injury lawyer and go over everything.

    There is no such thing as a multiple. To get past all the misinformation, you should get an attorney. You should be able to get a free consult and the lawyer will work for a percentage. You may be entitled to significant compensation for your harms and losses.

    This is up to the doctor. It is the doctor that would have to say it is connected and explain how. You should talk to an attorney about this.
