    Do you have your own automobile? Do you live with someone who is related to you by blood or marriage who has an automobile. If you or they have uninsured motorist coverage then you will be able to make a claim on your/their insurance. You will need to have corroborating evidence of the fact that your crash was caused by someone else.

  • I have headaches from car accident that was not my fault... How can they start to settle

    Was just wondering how they figure that out cuz they're getting ready to settle and I'm still having these headaches, I've been seeing the chiropractor and getting massages truly not helping

    Kevin’s Answer

    No case can settle without your consent. The insurance company can do all they want and rant and send letters. The law gives you time to settle your case and if you are not ready you simply say that you do not wish to settle at this point. It would be a good idea to get a lawyer who can help you out with all phases of your case and answer any questions.

    you need to review rule 68 of the Arizona rules of civil procedure. Rule 68 is a rule regarding offers of judgement. The text of the rule will explain the consequences if you do not get a better result at trial than the offer that the defendant has made to you.

    Kevin’s Answer

    As others have indicated medical malpractice cases are extremely difficult. In fact many attorneys will not do these type of cases. Fortunately there are still some of us who do. You can have a consultation for free. Do yourself a favor and consult with an attorney. After that you can then decide what is best for you.

  • Should the second check by considerably lower than the first or should they be the same?

    I got hit (not that bad) but my car was declared total lost. I kept the car and a week later i got hit even harder (i got injured) and the car was declared obviously total loss again. I got paid for the first hit but still waiting for the second p...

    Kevin’s Answer

    Yes the second check should be substantially lower since the value of your car at the time of the second crash was very little (total loss) from the first crash. Be careful to set the record straight so you do not get into a situation where and insurance company accuses you of insurance fraud.
