    All too often this type of pain shows up later rather than sooner. Your insurance should cover this OR in any case, the person who hit you's insurance should. Rear-enders almost always show fault on the other party. Feel free to contact my office for more guidance.

    All too often injuries show up later in these kinds of matters, so, I'd see a doc just to get checked out. Your car or medical insurance should cover this. Also, if you have uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist coverage you should be fine there too. I WOULD make a police report and WOULD have an attorney look at this.

    They sound like they are selling you a bunch of hooey. No atty wants to force something to trial when the max was offered on a relatively small case...

    So very sorry for your loss. Of course a 23 year old person does not generally die without a good reason. You are right to be concerned over her care. There can be more than one statute of limitations to consider in this kind of claim. My office handles consumer protection matters in CA. Feel free to contact us for a referral to a top notch atty in the LA area.

    Generally folks are not represented by law firms if they know nothing about the incident. Sounds like you are not on good terms with your sibling? Not even sure who brought the action but apparently you did not? Time to check the court rolls to see what is up and yes, maybe lawyer up too...

    Both prior responses from two fine attorneys are excellent advice and frankly, I would do both. Your concern is legitimate for yourself and your future. Go find another gig, keep records as best you can from your current situation, and the more you give to IRS, the more they will potentially reward you later.

    Depending on the state (here, apparently, CA) laws differ, but, CA and FL for example have strong laws that cover agents. Maybe on a one time deal you would be ok, but, over time, especially if big money comes in, it's important to know these laws and to be licensed. Also, in CA, if there is a contract negotiated in only Spanish (or four other certain languages) the contract itself must be in that language or it could be voided AND the loser of a lawsuit for failing to do so would have to pay...

    That car was not moving and you hit it. If it were a rock or a sign or a child would you be at fault? Since the damage is small, count your blessings and move on.
