    As in any lawsuit, you'll have to prove the shop actually caused the damage. So you'll need a mechanic to say that the shop's repairs caused your engine damage.

    You can either wait a little longer and follow up with GEICO, or file a lawsuit against the other driver which should get him to cooperate with his insurance.

  • Should I be worried?

    I was rear ended a couple months ago. 4 cars were involved. I am the first car in line. I stop, the 2 cars behind me stop, the 4th car hit the 3rd car which pushed the 2nd car into me. The 4th car ran off so we were not able to get back our losses...

    Andrew’s Answer

    Unless you stopped in the middle of the road for no reason, I don't see how you could be at fault. You may want to call the 2nd car's insurance and ask why they think your partly at fault. It may have been sent in error. If not and they continue to pursue you, then refer the matter to your insurance.

  • What is the statue of limitations on reporting am injury after having a car accident in Wisconson?

    I had a car accident August and no injuries were reported at the time cause I didn't feel any instant pain so left it as that. I have now been having pain and stiffness in my neck, back and shoulders.

    Andrew’s Answer

    There is no time limit to report an injury, however, a three month gap in treatment will definitely be used against you by the insurance company. Best to consult with a local personal injury attorney to discuss further.

    Andrew’s Answer

    I think your mother's only claims are through workers comp which would be for time loss, medical expenses and possible settlement for a permanent injury. She should consult with a local workers comp attorney to discuss further.

    Andrew’s Answer

    You are responsible for the damages whether a police report was filed or not. Also, it's a crime in FL to leave the scene of an accident (H & R) so you probably should resolve this with the other party before he decides to file a report with the police.
