    $15,000 is the minimum amount of damages one can claim in order to file a lawsuit in Circuit Court. If damages were alleged to be UNDER $15,000 the lawsuit would be filed in County Court or even in "small claims" court. In a personal injury case the plaintiff normally does not ask for a specific amount in his/her complaint.

    David’s Answer

    Because Car A did not use a turn signal I would say both cars are at fault. If Car A used a turn signal it would be 100% Car B's fault. Even though Car A did not use a turn signal, I feel like Car B should have seen car A slowing down and refrained from trying to pass Car A.

    David’s Answer

    Yes you can seek a new personal injury attorney. You may have to pay your current law firm for the time they spent on the file. That payment would come out of your final settlement. It is also possible to get your current law firm to withdraw from your case if you ask them. If they withdraw from the case you would not owe them anything.
