I'm being sued for 25,000 from an accident from 3 years ago. Question is, I no longer use that insurance company. Do they still represent me since I had them at the time of he accident?
Yes. If you were insured at the tine of the accident, then the insurer has to defend against any claim during the policy period. As an aside, there is a two year statute of limitations on auto claims in Pennsylvania. So if the accident was 3 years ago and you have just been sued, the other party may be too late unless they were a minor at the time of the accident. Be sure to send a copy of the Complaint filed in the lawsuit to your insurance company and request the name of the attorney that it is appointing to defend you.See question

Unfortunately, insurance policies usually do not cover intentional acts such as this. You did not indicate how much your property damage was. It might be too expensive for you to hire an attorney by the hour for this and as you have found out, it will be difficult to find an attorney to handle this on a contingent fee basis. The best solution will likely be for you to file a complaint for your property damage with your local District Justice. You will not need an attorney, only an estimate and appropriate documentation from the repair shop,. Your local District Justice office will likely assist you with the necessary paperwork. Best of luck with your claim.See question
on several occasions my wife has come home drunk/buzzed/hungover, etc. She will not admit to a drinking problem. She had a dui several years ago, before we were married, and did the ARD program and it has been exponged. If she were to get another ...
If your wife is involved in a DUI while doing something for you, i.e. the grocery shopping, picking up your laundry, you could be held legally responsible for negligently allowing her to drive on an errand for you with your knowledge of her DUI issues. In such a situation, she might be found to be acting as your agent while running those errands. You should investigate changing your insurance to another carrier without her listed as a driver on your policy. In any event, you should consider raising your liability limits to an amount the is high enough to protect all of your assets such as your home and savings.See question

This concerns disability and doctors failing to treat and diagnose me.
The most likely reason is that the attorneys that you spoke to felt that the amount of time and expense that would be involved in pursuing your case would not be justified by the amount that they estimated could be recovered by either a settlement of a verdict in your favor.

The other driver's insurance company will investigate the claim. Most likely, you will found to be at fault since this was a rear end collision. If your claim is denied, you have the right to file a lawsuit against the other driver for your property damages. Depending on the amount of your damages, you may be able to file suit in the District Justice Court without the need for an attorney. Best of luck with your claim.See question
