    Be careful, these types of cases take a lot of work--even if you believe its a "slam dunk." I agree with the other posters, you should meet with a few attorneys and discuss fee arrangements--they can be tailor made. But again, because these cases tend to be so much work, you might want to reconsider contingency. good luck.

    Definitely make sure your insurance company is defending you. Also, have a conversation with your attorney about the injuries claimed by the plaintiff and your potential exposure. If the inability to settle within your policy limits is the fault of your insurer, you should also get a second opinion from another attorney. It is important to make sure that the carrier does not needlessly expose you to excess liability (above your policy limits).

    I agree with the other posters. There probably would not be a requirement that the expert create a report. I think your two most important issues are (1) what will be the substance of the expert's testimony--if there is no report, you should probably depose the expert so that you can prepare rebuttals from your experts, etc.; and (2) admissibility, meaning how will the defense try to introduce the opinion at trial? If live testimony with proper foundation, I dont see how you can demand a report...

    I agree with the other posters, ask for your settlement statement before you sign anything. You may not be happy, (because cases, esp motorcycle cases often involve a lot of costs), but at least you will know where the money went.

  6. Can I changed my mind about a signed mediation agreement

    I agree with the other poster. Once you sign, its done. That being said, if you think you can prove fraud on the part of the other party, you may be able to petition the court to set aside the mediation agreement. But, you will likely need the assistance of counsel. This could be complicated. Good luck

    I agree with the other posters, you need to see an attorney right away to evaluate the rest of the circumstances of your case--ie whether there may be other causes of action against other parties. However, I think that the defendant you released in the settlement is out. This is why I tell impatient clients that a rush to settle may result in your leaving certain claims "on the table." good luck anyway

    It might be worth your time and a few hundred dollars to hire your own attorney to review this case with regard to your potential exposure to excess liability--meaning, the possibility that you could owe more money above your policy limit. If your attorney thinks there is exposure, you may want to demand that your insurance carrier tender (offer to pay) the policy limits to protect you. If they refuse, and you end up owing money above your policy, there is a potential bad faith claim against...

    These are very difficult cases. I have had numerous inquiries about liability for this kind of case. The facts , and whether you can substantiate them, are very important. If you want to pursue this case, my opinion is that you definitely need to consult an attorney.

    The person herself is self-insured? That doesnt sound likely. Enterprise, I believe is self insured. Some big companies are also self-insured.You might want to consult an attorney on this one. His/her resources may be greater in finding the driver and making a claim against whatever self-insured entity she works for. Also, filing a lawsuit would not be frivolous here. Who knows the truth about Enterprise is saying. You were damaged by an Enterprise driver. Filing suit will help you to sort out...
