  • How do I determine what a fair offer is from an insurance company for a settlement in a car accident?

    Chances are, the offer is not enough. Consult an experienced personal injury attorney in your market right away. Many attorneys offer a free, no obligation consultation.

  • I rent a home. Tree on property fell on my truck. My renters insurance denied my claim. Homeowners insurance denied. Auto is jus

    none

    Bill’s Answer

    I agree with the previous comment: apply for coverage under all your insurance policies and look at the reasons the companies denied your claim. If you feel your claims have been wrongfully denied, you may want to consider speaking with an attorney in your area. Many offer free consultations and would be able to help you explore options for getting your vehicle repaired.

  • I live in oregon i had a co-singer on my car i made all payments and had insurance and my co singer had the car reported what no

    I had a friend co signer for my car loan I have had it 3 years I made all the payments and kept insurance on the car then one night well 5days ago my cosinger with out telling me had the car repoed what do I do now

    Bill’s Answer

    You should consider speaking with an attorney in your area. I agree with the previous comment - read your sales agreement and find out what actions constitute breach. If you really have made all the payments on time and you've done nothing else that would have breached your agreement, you may be able to get your vehicle back with the help of an attorney. You'll likely need proof of all your payments and any other paperwork you received form the seller.

  • I want sue state farm for bad intent, deceptive practices and bait & switching for a policy(s) my gf and I recently purchased.

    We recently bought a policy for renters, life and auto insurance because of the great rates we were going to get. We waited for about a week for our auto insurance cards..nothing, 2 weeks in I called to see if they had sent them, they assured me ...

    Bill’s Answer

    You could consider meeting with an attorney and discussing this - many firms will give you a free consultation - but if you did not sign a contract with the insurance company stating the specifics of your policy, there may not be anything to sue about. I agree with the previous answer; you could probably find another insurance company that would offer you a comparable deal.

  • If i honestly told the insurance company that I did not know the witness but have found out she is a friend is this insurance fr

    The witness to a fender bender was wearing a rain coat with a hood tied tightly and ran iover to me and quickly gave me a note with ther number. This was about a month ago. Last night I was talking to my friend about my accident and found out she ...

    Bill’s Answer

    If you've already told your insurance company you didn't know the witness, you might consider simply calling your claims representative and setting the record straight. You could explain your mistake due to the weather circumstances, your friend's health issues, etc. as you did here. The company may leave it at that.

    However, if your friend has memory problems as you stated, I would probably agree with the previous answer - she may not be the best witness.

  • My attorney sent a demand letter on aug6 how much longer will I have to wait until I hear anything from state farm?

    Ian done with my med treatment.

    Bill’s Answer

    Your state may impose time limits within which the insurance company must respond. Additionally, the attorney may have included a time frame in the letter. You should consider speaking with your attorney about when he or she expects the insurance company to respond and what state laws, if any, apply in this case.

  • Can a payday loan company file charges against you and threaten you with jail time? I live in the state of Texas.

    A payday loan company called and stated they were from NYPD and they were going to arrest me on 09/14/12 from my job and get me fired. Is that legal and can I file a complaint on them with the BBB?

    Bill’s Answer

    I am assuming you are the recipient of loan proceeds from this company and have fallen behind on payments. In Texas, the Texas Debt Collection Act protects debtors who are in default from certain debt collection methods. Assuming the payday loan company would be considered a debt collector under the statute, they are not allowed to threaten that you will be arrested without proper court proceedings (however, if the company merely informed you that you could be arrested after proper procedures were taken, this is probably not in violation of the statute). Generally, debt collectors are allowed to threaten to file a civil law suit or repossess items that may have been used as collateral for the loan, because these are actions they may actually take as a result of nonpayment. If they have threatened you with arrest and to have you fired, you may be entitled to damages from the company.

    You should consider contacting an attorney to discuss this matter in more detail. Feel free to visit our website if you would like to take advantage of our free online chat feature or would like to speak with an attorney in our local office.

    Bill’s Answer

    You might consider contacting an attorney immediately, especially if the company is not willing to work with you on your own. If you do have the documentation of the payments you have made, an attorney may be able to help you stop the company from repossessing your vehicle as well as getting the payments credited to your account.
