    Your insurance company will protect you and your parents (assuming they are on the policy) when there is a settlement with the pedestrian. It would be a rare case for the pedestrian to turn down the policy limit and pursue you personally. Once the pedestrian accepts the policy limit, he/she has waived any further claim against you and your parents. He/she can not accept the policy limit and still pursue you. If the insurance company failed to protect you and/or your parents when...

    (1) File a traffic collision report ASAP. (2) Contact your auto insurance company. (3) Ascertain how much “medical payments” insurance your mom has on her auto insurance policy. This is money she can use to get medical attention and to pay co-pays if she has other insurance. (4) Educate yourselves as to your rights. You can do this by consulting a personal injury attorney or two. Most of the best personal injury attorneys provide free consultations. Get a consultation. There are...

    You are going to have a nasty fight on your hands. You are going to get a lot of push back unless you make a low ball offer to settle. The major auto insurance companies are very good at fighting what they call “soft tissue injury” cases. Juries generally aren’t generous in their compensation awards for these type injuries and the insurance companies know it. Unless you have a way to force them to pay, you are going to have a tough time. You are entitled to all of your medical...

    Absolutely. This is the very reason for UIM (under insured motorist) coverage. It applies to passengers and pedestrians as well. As long as the injury was caused by an uninsured or underinsured motor vehicle collision. Sally must first recover all applicable insurance of the legally liable parties. She can then seek the balance of her damages through her UIM coverage, up to the limits of her coverage. Her insurance company gets credit for what she collects from other liable parties in...

    In most situations, you have two years to file a personal injury claim for a California traffic collision. Strongly suggest that you consult with the best personal injury attorney that will provide you a free analysis of your situation. If you have not received treatment or have large time gaps in your treatment, your claim will have lost value. The insurance companies will claim that intervening events have caused your present complaints otherwise you would have sought treatment earlier....

    This story sounds fishy. If you were hurt in the traffic collision you deserve compensation. Six months is not an issue. We do not settle any of our personal injury cases under six months because we want to be sure that all injuries have manifested themselves and the injuries are healed. We are more concerned about being sure our client’s injuries are resolved than how fast a case is settled. Six months is to quick a settlement for our cases. I suggest obtaining a copy of your file (...

    The good news is that you daughter survived with only emotional wounds and maybe some water in her lungs. Your best bet is to consult with the very best personal injury lawyer you can find. The best will provide you a free consultation, an analysis of your situation and a discussion of your options. If your daughter escapes this near miss without medical expenses or serious emotional scars, there might not be enough “damages” to warrant a lawsuit. Good luck.
