I filed a wrongful death claim in Aug 2013 we are coming to end finaly but I'm barly signing the papers
Unclear from your post. need to know the date of death. When you say you filed a claim in Aug '13, do you mean you filed a lawsuit in court or demand for arbitration if there was a binding arb clause? If you meant you made a claim to the deft's ins co but no lawsuit, you may have blown the statute of limitations by now. See a local lawyer asap.See question

You can go for medical expenses, lost earnings, future medical, future lost earnings, past pain and suffering, and future pain and suffering. You should consider hiring an atty to handle the details and advise you while you focus on getting well. Attys normally take cases like this on a contingency fee (percentage), so you don't have to come out of pocket to pay atty . Id suggest you get some free consults before talking to the other ins co. and before you mess up your case.See question

Look for damage to his car and see if it is consistent with the damage to yours. Report it all to your company. If you had no witnesses, no guarantee you will win. Might want to check with neighbors to see if anyone saw it, or at least saw him go to your house afterwards. You could get screwed. Depending on amount of damage and your deductible, you may eat the deductible in order to get the rest of damage covered. Most policies require for hit and run property damage, that the license plate or identity of the hit and run car/driver be shown.See question

In regular court, it is deft's burden to prove what injuries would have been prevented had you worn a belt. That usually requires expert testimony. (depends on facts) In small claims, the rules are loose as no lawyers are allowed to represent people. Court commissioners and judge pro tems may not be conversant with the issue, or might just ignore the technical rules in this regard to reach what they consider a fair result. You can pay a lawyer or law student to prep a brief for you about the defts burden, and bring it with to small claims and submit it to the judge. You can also research biomechanics of rear end crashes like yours. For example, if you claim you injured your neck in a whiplash motion, having a seatbelt would not likely have prevented your neck from flexion/extension any way. On the other hand, if you went flying forward over the seatback of the seat ahead of you, a belt would probably have prevented that. Even in that case, you would need to see if the crash caused damage to the existing seatbelts such that they may not have worked properly even if used. In serious injury cases, experts are hired to sort out these issues, which can get complex, and expensive.See question
I reported accident to police. The answer that camera was not working at the time of the accident was given to police and that was the reason for police to stop investigation.
Talk to an Illinois lawyer to see if you can file suit against Doe defendants, and then issue subpoena. However, if the store lied and said they had no video, they would possibly lie when served with a subpoena. You could take several depositions of people working for the store in hopes of proving they do have video, but its expensive and a long shot. Might be cheaper to hire an investigator to try to talk to employees in the store, and to canvass looking for a witness.
Often the resolution of these cameras is so bad, license plates may not be readable. They may not have had enough light, or be properly aimed to have caught the info you need.
Can I hold the security camera owner accountable for the damage if they are deceiving the police and are hiding the evidence?

Your health ins premiums wont go up. However, the medical ins company may also want to take part of the money you collect on the case as reimbursement. Depending upon the type of plan you have, there may be a way to negotiate a reduction or waiver. Discuss this with your atty.See question
My insurance company is involved and said they will hire an attorney for me. I am totally confused about this whole process. I don't know where to start.
If you are being sued for more than your coverage, you should talk to an independent atty. You may want to talk to an asset protection lawyer, a bankruptcy lawyer, and a civil litigation atty. You could consider hiring an atty that typically defends car accident cases. Sometimes a lawyer who represents people suing for car accidents can be a good atty to have on your side.See question
