    Yes you can if you know who the other party is. If you do not, contact our own insurance carrier to see if you have uninsured motorist coverage for this. Since you are have great emotional difficulty with this, you can see a therapist which you can be compensated for as well, just like any other physician. You should also consult with an injury attorney to find out all of your other legal rights. Good luck to you.

    You should immediately go to the doctor and get medical treatment first. Then hire a personal injury attorney to represent you. The difficulty now due to the delay in getting to the doctor will be in proving your injuries were caused by the incident. Hopefully, you reported the incident and injuries to hotel management when it happened. Good luck to you.

    I am afraid you have an uphill battle. Being that you were the one pulling out into traffic from a driveway, you have the duty to proceed only when safe. It sounds like it was safe when you proceeded, and then became unsafe. All the other party needs to say is that she did not see you, etc. 50/50 sounds like the best you will be able to do, unfortunately. Good luck to you.

    Yes, it is common. The insurance company will 1099 the attorney so the attorney will pay taxes on his or her portion (fees) as income.

    You will have to file a Petition For Late Claim ASAP! You can include the fact that you filed with the State by accident with the petition. As far as where, if no one can tell you exactly here on AVVO just call the county andtell them you want to file a claim against the county and they can mail you a form, or you can pick it up. They can also tell you where to file it (with the petition). These petitions are something an attorney should probably do for you. Good luck!

    You can only file a claim against the seller' homeowner's insurance if the seller was somehow negligent. If your leg buckled on its own, there would be no liability on the seller. If there was something wrong with the stairs that caused you to fall, there might be liability. You should consult with an attorney further about this since your injuries appear to be severe, just to make sure. The attorney will be able to explore all the facts with you in greater detail.

    If you were injured, you should obtain a California attorney to go after the car wash owner. His insurance will be the one to decide if they will pay you on the claim. I don't know why your own insurance paid for the other car's damage. It seems they would have gone after the carwash owner as well. Did your carrier tell you why they paid for the other car, other than it was your car that hit it? Also if you are injured you should go to the doctor's and get your injuries documented for your...

    For injuries, you must file your claim against the at-fault party's insurance company. If they don't have insurance, you can file your claim with your own insurance carrier under your own uninsured motorist coverage if you have it. Property damage (to your vehicle is different.) If you have the appropriate coverage, you can go though either carrier but if you go through yur own carrier you will have deductible to pay. It sounds like maybe you need to hire an attorney to assist you. Good luck.

    You should have your own attorney who can present the claim/case for you and your pregnant wife. Definitely do not speak to the other parties' insurance carrier without your lawyer present. Do not sign any papers they may send over to you. Your pregnant wife should get to her OBGYN immediately to document she was involved in a car accident. She will not want to settle her case until well after the baby is born to ensure no damages to the baby from the accident. Personal injury attorneys...
