So far the primary LE investigator has not returned any of my calls.
Sorry to hear about your accident, and hope you're recovering soon! I would definitely reach out to a local attorney to help you start putting the claim together, and get a lot of the stress of your shoulders while you recover. A lot can be done prior to the police report being finalized, and you want to make sure that everything is done correctly the first time. Good luck!See question
I was rear ended 1 1/2 weeks ago. I went to an urgent care 2 days later due to soreness in my shoulder. He took X-RAYS and gave me medications that helped. I still am having pain in my back. I did break my back 2 years ago. I believe the accident ...
Sorry to hear about your accident. I agree with the other answering lawyers. My cases where clients have pre-existing injuries almost always face tough resistance regarding proving the "origin" of injury. Most attorneys offer free consultations to listen to the facts of your case and injury. I would 100% recommend making that call ASAP. Good luck!See question

My wife is out on disability in CA. She was taken out for 3 months, but her employer only approved her for a temporary leave and not disability . Her doctor has extended her for 6 more months. The extension form has been signed by her doctor and s...
Sorry to hear about your situation. If your wife is still unable to work, have one of her treating physicians request an extension of her disability. If you have any issues with the disability carrier, you may want to consult with a disability attorney. I've helped several people in these instances, and they can sometimes get sticky. Good luck!See question
My wife was involved in a 3 car accident whereby our car was damaged in the rear due to her being the first car hit. She did not move forward and hit the other car, only hit from behind. The car that hit her was not at fault by the police report s...
Sorry to hear about the accident, and I hope that your wife is doing well and not injured. Issue like this arise often, where liable drivers try to talk their way out of liability. However, it is important that you do report the accident to your insurance company, even if you're not at fault. There are several reasons to do this. Many of my accident cases have early liability issues, but an attorney should be able to iron them out once the dust settles. I definitely recommend reaching out to a local accident attorney for a free consultation. Good luck!See question
I hit a sdge utility pole the cost is $250,000 and my insurance covers up to $50,000. Will they come after my husbands property he owns even though he was not the one in the accident? I am not on any paperwork for anything related the property.
Sorry about this headache. I agree with the other responses, as I've seen insurance companies go after assets from an individual when they know that they are ascertainable, and sometimes they don't pursue them. While I've represented a few clients in this situation, it largely depends on the facts of the case, as well as how easily obtainable your/your husbands assets are when enforcing a judgement beyond your insurance policy limits.See question
I was rear ended a few days ago. I was in a rental car and I didn't have any insurance (I opted not to buy the optional insurance). I had to get medical attention at the ER after the pain worsened. My question is, since I had no insurance, do I co...
Sorry to hear about the accident, and I hope you're feeling better. The fact that you didn't have the insurance doesn't change things too much, but your insurance may have to get involved with the other party's. If you choose to hire a local injury attorney, they often will open the claim for you and make sure that everything is straighten out regarding liability, coverage and your medical needs.See question
We would like to contact an attorney that practices exclusively ERISA law to represent me against an insurance company that denied long term disability claim? Insurance company called and said my claim was denied after reviewing an IME report.
I've represented many individuals after they were denied long-term benefits. Depending on how many denials there has been, and how long it has been since the last denial, many claims can be successful if received in time. Have you requested a full copy of your administrative file from the insurance company yet? Definitely a must do to fully evaluate a LTD claim.See question
I was receiving LTD for a hip injury. My LTD enlisted one of their companies to file for SSDI after a year. Long story short. My hearing was August 15th and they terminated me on August 24th. (before we new the outcome) I was awarded SSDI 6 months...
Sorry to hear about all this. Appealing the LTD denial may be the best way to attach the request for reimbursement. I've dealt with that before, and the appeal can help with negotiation, and if the appeal is solid, can provide funds for reimbursement. However, appealing the denial must be timely, so time may be of the essence.See question
This case is in regards to a disability claim with insurance provided through employer that is governed by ERISA laws
Sorry to hear about your situation. Are you requesting the file in response to having the policy denied? If so, there's no court procedure as everything must happen during the administration process, prior to filing a lawsuit. I deal with disability carriers all the time in requesting files for an ERISA appeal. They are required to produce the file to you as specified in your policy. But, it they are giving you a hard time, you may want to speak with an attorney who represents denied policy holders for additional help and leverage. At the end of the day, an ERISA lawsuit in Federal Court is your back-up plan.See question
