On average how long does an underinsured motorist claim take to resolve in New York City? We filed the claim recently for $100,000. Do these claims typically settle quickly or go to court?
These claims typically take a shorter period of time to resolve than a lawsuit, however, your insurance co. may file a petition to stay arbitration and if it is granted, there may be some limited-issue litigation prior to resolution.See question

I was injured as a pedestrian by a car. I just got EOB from geico. They covered (no fault) little of medical bills which is like 90 000 and they paid only 20 000. What does it mean? Is the money claimed by hospital on me? Or whom?
The hospital had you sign an assignment of benefits in order for them to bill the No-Fault insurance carrier. Once they bill the carrier, they must accept what the carrier gives them or the hospital has the option to file arbitration. You are NOT responsible for any fees and pursuant to the New York No-Fault Regulation, the hospital is not entitled to come after you or any proceeds of a personal injury action (certain exceptions apply).See question
After no fault is exhausted, I can use my own health insurance, right? If I win a liability case, do I always need to pay back to my own health insurance for the costs it covered?
If you have that serious a case, you should have a lawyer, and your lawyer will be able to advise you on your answer.See question

I'm going to be very practical here: if your toe heals, the cost of pursuing a products liability case will outweigh any compensation you might be entitled to. If your toe, however, were to have to be removed, a lawyer would more easily accept your case.
I hope your toe heals. Best of luck.
