You should heed the advise of the others that have responded and get a personal injury attorney involved. Even if someone on this site wanted to offer an opinion as to value, there is not enough information given.See question
What happens if the other party doesn't show to the case conference but only his lawyer?
There is simply not enough information here. What type of conference? What court? What kind of case? Was there an order directing an appearance? Had the other party failed to appear at other conferences?See question
I'm waiting for geico insurance adjusters to review my claim but I don't know how long that process takes it's been a week already
I'm not sure what you are referring to when you say review a claim. Has this just been reported or did you submit settlement documents to them to consider? Is it a claim against your policy or a different GEICO insured? If it is the latter, it could take 60-90 days or more depending on the amount of information involved. Unless your talking about a property damage claim, they will not be in a rush to conduct a review it so plan on keeping on top of them.See question

I was a pedestrian and hit by a car in my driveway, I was hospitalized for a few days with leg, ankle and jaw breaks. The accident was April 2012. I sued the insurance, and under a lawyers advise, settled for a settlement along with no fault cover...
No-fault coverage never lasts forever. Even if you were able to convince the insurance company that you were entitled to coverage year after year, there is always a limit on the amount of coverage available. As far as the outstanding bill is concerned, if the hospital failed to timely submit the its invoice, that is really its problem and they cannot look to you for their error. You should have gotten a copy of the denial of benefits which will state the reason why they were not paid. If it was their fault, you should have your attorney write to them that you are not responsible under no-fault regulations.See question
My son was involved in a car accident. Right tire blew out, he lost control on the icey road, but a guard rail rolled over twice and landed in a ditch. He filed a no fault claim W his insurance co. Ins Co. Told him he will not be compensated for ...
You are confusing no-fault benefits with compensation for pain and suffering. No-fault pays medical expenses, lost wages, etc. These benefits are generally payable regardless of fault. Your own carrier will not compensate your son for pain and suffering as if you were suing another driver in a two car accident. You cannot sue your own insurance company for injuries sustained under the circumstances presented. A claim for pain and suffering against the tire manufacturer may be possible but that would require you to consult with a personal injury attorney to determine. Good luck.See question
Me and my fiancé were staying at this hotel in long island city. Every night we stayed there some guests smoked weed and possibly other drugs on our floor. Our room, the hallways and staircases filled up with smoke. We didn't complain until one mo...
Other than the apparent inconvenience, what are your damages? You can complain to the hotel chain and perhaps get some compensation but as far as a lawsuit is concerned, the value of the case versus the expense involved would result in little or no return.See question
