It is somewhat unusual but certainly not impossible that an insurer would change its decision regarding allocation of fault from the property damage stage to the bodily injury stage of a claim. If the insurer is now offering 100% of your injury claim, you ought to try going back and getting the other 40% of your property damage claim (if you didn't sign a property damage release).

This is possible. I know it doesn't make sense, but it can happen


You state you have an attorney, so this is best addressed by your attorney. The answers we give here are based on the few facts you provide. Your attorney will be in the best position to advise you because he/she knows all of the details. And advice is a large part of why you pay an attorney, so call your attorney.


It is possible, but a lawyer should be able to do a better job negotiating this.
