    Answered . It appears from your question that you are being sued in connection with a motor vehicle accident that occurred while you were operating a company vehicle. If that is the case, your employer's insurance company will likely have a duty to defend you in the law suit and will be hiring an attorney to do so. Even though the insurance company is in Arizona, they will be hiring a local attorney to represent you. If you were injured in this car accident then you would need to hire your own attorney to pursue any claims that you may have against the other driver, if you feel the other driver is at fault, as the attorney the insurance company hires likely will not pursue those claims on your behalf. If the other driver was not at fault, but you were injured in the accident, you may still have a valid claim for workers' compensation benefits, if you were in fact operating the vehicle during the course of your employment. It would be advisable to speak to a local attorney to review all of the details of your accident and to make a reasoned determination as to which potential course of action you should take.

    By providing this answer I am not providing legal advice, nor has any attorney client relationship been formed.

    Answered . Your post is a little difficult to follow. It seems like you notified your insurance company of the claim. If they are not doing what they are supposed to, then you should speak with a local lawyer to ensure your rights are protected.
