Although, I haven't finished treatment, my medical bills are already at $25,000, will I be able to receive payment for my medical bills and for pain and suffering? What amount should I request if my medical bills are more than $30,000? 2.5 times t...
First, that they have accepted 100% liability is a GOOD thing.
Assume they don’t change (yes, they can), you can then expect the fight to come on the injury front.
1. You weren’t injured that bad;
2. You could not have been injured as bad as you are claiming in this accident;
3. The medical care you received was excessive;
4. The bills are excessive.
These can be complicated areas. Be careful in your negotiations. Say too much, or the wrong thing, and it can really hurt your case?
Suggestion: At least seek an initial consultation with an experienced injury attorney. It is free, and you will likely get a good education in deciding the best way to proceedSee question

Unfortunately, in Arizona, the law allows medical providers to do this. However, in order to have a right to balance bill, they have to follow a very specific protocol. If they fail to follow the protocol, then they have no such right.
If you have an attorney, your attorney should be able to explain this all to you.See question
Am I supposed to obtain my medical records or is that something she's suppose to request since I signed medical release form? I have received the forms from my insurance company requesting an actual written report of my accident, do I have to prov...
What you SHOULD expect is that your attorney will explain all of this to you.
That is our responsibility to you--not only to handle ALL matters for you, but also, to explain and educate you to understand things better.
As your attorney has seemingly failed to do this, you have 2 choices:
1. Talk to your attorney and clarify your responsibilities and his/her responsibilities;
2. Find a new attorney who better understands his/her role and explain to you.

Here is the law in Arizona:
Regardless of what the police do at the scene, if the other driver was at fault, and the other drivers insurance company is responsible for all of your damages.

Generally, the above is true. UM and UIM recoveries are not subject to liens, except the following:
1. Governmental liens (Medicare, Tricare, AHCCCS, etc…);
2. Health insurance rights to reimbursement (so long as the policy language says so);
If your attorney thinks the UM and UIM are needed to resolve health provider liens, be very careful.See question
If you were rear ended in an auto accident and the other vehicle was not insured, who would be liable for damages? Would the owner of the vehicle or the driver who was sited for no proof of insurance and failiure to stop. Would the driver be able...
The driver would be primarily liable; the owner of the vehicle could be for a “negligent entrustment”.
If a person causes an accident and has no insurance, their license is subject to suspension regardless if they pay the fine. This would be incumbent on the injured party to pursue this course of action with the court.
It is possible for both the driver and the vehicle owner to be liable.See question

The questions is not “can you” be held to the settlement, but rather, “will you” be held to it.
In my opinion, no.
If you can prove you were under the influence of a narcotic, you can argue that you did not have “legal capacity” to consent.
Good luckSee question
