    My health insurance have paid some of my medical bills and my insurance paid some of my bills through my med-pay which is $2k.

    Have you tried working out this matter directly with the defendant's insurance company? You may want to give that a try first if you are set on handling this without the assistance of an attorney. Just remember there are strict time limits on how long you have to file a lawsuit.

    Interesting. I think we all would have lots of additional questions for you, but is there something specific that you want to know because I did not see a question in your comment. Did you have an actual house fire caused by the panels?

  • I was at fault in a car accident and my restitution hearing is a week away.

    I just received a letter from the other parties attorney requesting my insurance information... I assume he will collect from my insurance therefore do I still have to pay restitution?

    Ryan’s Answer

    It is unlikely anything will be accomplished with your insurance before the restitution hearing. These are separate issues. Show up and explain the insurance request from the other side's attorney. Maybe you can continue the restitution hearing until the insurance is worked out.

    No lien. You can pay now or pay later. Collection companies are notorious for refusing to reduce the amount. Too bad it got to collections before an agreement could be made to reduce the amount.
