    I added Criminal Defense, DUI and DUI Blood Test as tags for your question. A car accident attorney will likely not know. I don't even think a Criminal Defense attorney knows if it will get thrown out.

    Michael’s Answer

    You should sue both the driver and the owner. You should also check to see if you had uninsured motorist/property damage. If so, your insurance will pay and go after the party at fault.

    The driver admitted he was driving in a two way turning lane and was cited. The person at fault insurance company is refusing to pay for the rental and states that they have to talk to 3 witnesses to determine liability when only 1 is listed on th...

    Michael’s Answer

    Since you did not have insurance, you are at the mercy of the other driver's insurance company. Does the insurance company have a copy of the police report? You should call the adjuster and ask if they have a copy of the police report.

    Is your husband injured? Since he did not have insurance, Proposition 213 applies. I would suggest retaining an attorney to help handle the damages. Feel free to contact my office for a free consultation. (818) 272-8882

  • Can I dispute a debt based on promissory estoppel or at least negotiate the amount collectable?

    I was in an auto accident, my insurance policy's med pay covered $5,000 of my bills, while I worked out settlement with other carrier. When I called my insurance previously I was told I would not have to reimburse my med pay even if I received set...

    Michael’s Answer

    Looks like you have a non-reimbursable Med Pay policy. You may want to look at your declaration page to verify. I do came across reimbursable Med Pay policies here and there. You can still go after the party at fault and your settlement will not be reduced by any way. Hopefully you can knock out some of you bills with the Med Pay money so there is more money left for you at the end of the day. Good luck!

    Michael’s Answer

    Sounds like he has a criminal case pending. However, we would need more information to see if he has a civil case.

    We hear your side/brother's side of the story. I wonder what the police officer's side of the story is.
    (probably that your brother was evading arrest)

    Michael’s Answer

    Are you going forward without an attorney? In my opinion, it would be best to be represented by an attorney. An insurance company (even your own) will attempt to low ball you. Most attorneys in this industry would work on a percentage basis and help to insure your medical bills are paid.

    With the injuries you have stated, your insurance should fork over its policy limit. Feel free to contact me if you would like a free consultation.
