    In California, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit is usually 2 years. There are some exceptions to this rule. If a government entity is involved, you must file a claim against the government entity within 6 months of the accident. If non government entity is involved, a minor has the statute tolled until they reach their 18 th birthday. When to file the lawsuit involves some strategy. You should wait until you are done with your medical treatment and until your attorney...

    You are not required to accept the settlement. If you are still treating for the injuries, you should be very careful before settling the case. I agree with the other answers. Get a second opinion from a qualified personal injury attorney before signing the release. Make sure you are being treated by reputable doctors. If the insurance company knows the doctors are reputable, they likely will offer more in settlement. Make sure your lawsuit is filed timely if you decide not to accept the...

    You have a right to change lawyers at any time. Consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who is willing to take your case to trial if needed. He will have to share his fee with your present attorney so he will only take the case if he thinks he can get more than the present offer.

    Just tell them you are presenting a claim but not ready to settle the case at this time. I would suggest that you retain an experienced personal attorney to represent you. Did you get any medical treatment? Are you done treating? Are you ready to settle your case? Was there a police report? Did you get a copy of it? Is the other party at fault? More information is needed to give you more advice. Remember, the statute of limitations in California for personal injury claims is two years...

    No, you are only entitled to the single limit. In California, if the policy is $15,000/$30,000, it is $15,000 for any one person injured in the accident and $30,000 for all persons injured. You should consulrt with a experienced personal injury attorney in your area due to the low offer.

    You sue the individual who caused the accident. Their insurance company defends them and pays any judgment or settlement up to their policy limits.

    If you want to see it before he submits the brief for your input, let your attorney know. Most attorneys have enough information to prepare the brief without input from the client.

    The letter is probably from the insurance company for the at fault party. It is just as the letter says. You must either settle the claim or file a lawsuit within two years or you lose all of your rights to present a claim..

    If you have collision insurance on your car, make the claim through your own insurance and let them go after the other party's insurance to get back the cost of repair. You will have to pay your deductible, but your own insurance company will usually get that back for you. Your other choice is to get an estimate and if it is within the jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court, file a claim against the owner and driver of the truck in Small Claims for the cost of repair and loss of use of your...

    The other answers are correct. If you do retain an attorney, he will be able to obtain a copy of your recorded statement to see if you said anything that could damage your case. If you have not been to a doctor, you should go as soon as possible since the longer you wait to seek medical attention, usually it lowers the value of the case.
