  1. Best answer

    I agree with the other attorneys words. Those are strong words used by the attorney who said he will work a undue hardship against the at-fault driver. Sounds like a threat for some reason.

    The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not intended nor construed to be "legal advice" but rather it is analysis, and different lawyers may analyze this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I have been licensed to practice law in California since 1978. See also terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.

  2. Not enough info, can only speculate. If this is your lawyer, ask your lawyer. if this is the other lawyer he may be saying to Farmers that if they dont come up with a reasonable settlment, he will file suit and make it as hard on the farmer's insured as possible during the litigation.

  3. Whatever the lawyer means,it doesn't sound right to me.
    I hope this isn't your lawyer.

  4. I don't really understand your question ? The statement in the question doesn't make sense.

  5. I would need to know the context of this statement to fully evaluate.

  6. No, I cannot explain it. If you have a lawyer, I suggest that you ask him or her. If you don't, I suggest that you ask the lawyer who said it.

    Good luck.

  7. It is a nonsensical statement, so no one here can explain it. It isn't something I would ever say, and after practicing law here in Texas for 27 years now, I've never heard the expression "undue hardship" in the context of a car wreck insurance claim.

    Now, if it came out of the mouth of someone at Farmers Insurance as an excuse on why you should not pursue a claim against their insured, then it makes sense, because some insurance adjusters will say anything to try and dissuade people from making legitimate claims against their company - sad, but true.

    If you can give us more detail on the circumstances in which the statement was made, someone here will know the answer or at least have a good idea, otherwise we're all speculating and guessing on this one.
