  • Son was rear ended in our car. He had a suspended license.(we did not know) Car is totaled, he was hurt. Will State Farm pay?

    He had a warrant also. the officer took him to be medically cleared, but they would not because of a previous injury that was aggravated by the accident. He is being treated for that injury, and can not get treatment for his soreness/neck/back p...

    Adam’s Answer

    Based on the provided information, your son does have a case that should be pursued. There are some difficulties based on the fact pattern, however a skilled attorney should be able to navigate around those issues in seeking recovery.

    Definitely DO NOT attempt to handle this matter without an attorney. The insurance companies will use any information they can obtain to avoid paying. Call a personal injury attorney now and set up a free consultation. Injury cases are handled entirely on a contingency so there's no risk to you of having this handled correctly from the start.

    The short answer to your question is no. The main coverage utilized for obtaining payment via the host vehicle's coverage by you would be uninsured motorist coverage (UM); which would cover your medical, pain & suffering, wage loss etc. in the event the adverse driver had no coverage.

    In the present scenario, there is coverage on the adverse vehicle, they are just refusing to make a reasonable offer. Thus, no UM claim availability via the host vehicle.

    You're seeing first hand the results of going it alone. The insurance company's only interest is saving money, not paying reasonable amounts. Do yourself a favor, hire an attorney to help you with this NOW. The representation will be on a contingency fee basis, not out of pocket.

    Without an attorney you should expect to be taken advantage of by the insurance company. There is much more work than you could imagine involved in an attorney properly handling this case. Do not try to handle this on your own. Get an attorney now.

    Adam’s Answer

    You need to meet with a personal injury attorney to review the facts regarding your case. Insurance companies are in the money making business, not the doing what's fair and right business. Even when liability is clear, insurance companies will still fight causation and damages to avoid paying.

    Once an attorney has all the factors regarding your case in front of him he can advise you what the best course of action is, which may require filing suit in your case. The consultation is free and representation is on a contingency basis.

    Adam’s Answer

    Unfortunately you are finding out why it is important to have a personal injury attorney. The insurance company's only interest is paying as little as they can get away with. You should contact a personal injury attorney immediately to see if your case can be salvaged at this late juncture.

    Adam’s Answer

    Oftentimes the legal work relating to liens is as complicated if not more so than obtaining recovery. There are a variety of issues that need to be dealt with in your case. Namely, deciphering which liens are valid (many claimed liens are not), removing the invalid ones and reducing the remaining liens as much as possible in order to get you the highest net recovery.

    Some personal injury attorneys such as myself will help people get out of these messes in circumstances like yours. You should avail yourself to a free consultation. Most of us would be happy to help you and could give some realistic expectations going forward.

    If we can't sue for wrongful death is there any other statute we can sue the person who hit her. The person driving the car claimed the sun was in her eyes. It happened 3:15pm with sunset at 4:18pm Washington time. A 13 year old passenger state...

    Adam’s Answer

    In Arizona generally the parents, spouse, legal guardian, or children of the decedent may bring a claim for wrongful death.

    From the circumstances it sounds like there would be a viable claim, however it would need to be brought in the name of one of the aforementioned statutory beneficiaries.

    • Selected as best answer

    You should still consult with an attorney as there is still a lot that can be done to benefit you. Oftentimes more than one policy can be located and an attorney can turn over every stone to ensure you receive the maximum recovery. Beyond that, the back end work of reducing or removing Iinvalid liens can make a huge difference in your net recovery.
    Most of us are pretty honest as to what benefit we could add to your specific case. Avail yourself to a free consultation, if nothing else you'll walk away far more equipped moving forward.

    Adam’s Answer

    You need to call your lawyer. An important question is when did your injuries resolve or treatment end as it would not be prudent of an attorney to resolve prior to.
    You should be able to get a straight answer as towhat progress they have made and how much longer to the next stage.
