    Answered . Let your insurance company handle the matter - if you are served with any documents immediately forward them to your insurance company - they are obligated to defend you & provide an attorney free of charge for that purpose.

    Answered . You do not pose a question; you make a statement. You also do not provide any information as to how the accident happened or what you are concerned about. Consider that if there are no property damages, the insurance company will be very reluctant to extend any offer to the plaintiff. Generally speaking, in cases with no damages and poor liability, the carrier would rather spend exorbitant sums of money in expert and lawyer fees to defend you than to compensate the plaintiff. But again, I have no information about your case; and you did not pose a question. It sounds like you have insurance, and therefore also a lawyer. Speak to your lawyer about the reasons why the insurance company is fighting the case. Best of luck!

    Answered . Your insurance company has a legal duty to hire counsel, who will represent you in this case. I know it is frustrating, but unfortunately some people just seem to do those types of things.

    Depending upon the position of your insurance carrier, they might make a nominal offer, just to make this go away quickly.

    Good luck.

    Answered . I tend to agree with the responding counsel. You should let your insurance company handle this for you. If you were injured in the accident, then you should consult with an experienced car accident attorney to represent you. I have over 20 years of experience representing clients, fighting for their rights and settlements to help them recover. Best of luck with your case.
