    The only thing you can do is to tell your health insurance company that you have not been what is called "made whole" by the settlement. That means that you will not have received a fair share of the settlement amount if you are forced to re-pay the insurance company. Ask them to reduce your repayment amount so that you are "made whole" by the settlement. They may then say that your health insurance policy has a clause that says they are not required that you be made whole. If you already have...

    Did owner of the car have collision insurance on it? Since you were using the car with the owners permission you were a permissive user and the owners collision coverage should cover the cost of repair, less the insurance deductible. Good luck John Burns

    It sounds like you hit a pedestrian while you were working for your company. in California your company would be responsible for your causing the pedestrian injuries while you are working. However, if the pedestrian sues he or she will most likely sue both your company and yourself. It also sounds like the value of that pedestrian's claim exceeds the amount of insurance coverage your company has. If a settlement is not reached within the insurance policy limits your company and you could be...

    I am sorry to tell you that you are probably not going to be able to recover against the bar. You do not indicate that you were seriously injured by the passerby, although you did get into a fight. In addition, the person who fought with you was a passerby and not a bar patron. It is likely that the bar does not have a legal duty to protect you from a passerby. In addition, if the case is dropped, I believe that you should get your bail money back so you will have no financial damages

    Your case will depend on a fewvthings. First, big was the uneven area of the street where you fell? If it was a very snpmall amount, for example less than one inch, it might be found to be what is called a "trivial defect". If it is found to be a trivial defect you probably won't be able to get money from the case. If it was a road surface irregularity which was big enough to get past the trivial defect rule and it is a city, county or other governmental organization which owns the road you...

    The law can only pay money to make things right. You must have injuries, what we call damages in the law, for the law to compensate you. What happened is unfortunate but there is nothing the law can do for you because you have no damages (medical bills, etc.) for which you can be compensated (paid). Be glad you were not hurt and don't have injuries and medical bills. I hope you enjoy your holidays knowing you could have been far worse off. John Burns

    Do you carry Uninsured Motorist insurance on your own policy? In California, your own Uninsured Motorist policy will cover where the at fault person's policy ends, up to the limits of your Uninsured Motorist coverage. If you have Uninsured Motorist coverage of at least $100,000.00 per person, you may have enough to cover your claim, even if it turns out that the at fault party has low insurance policy coverage.
