a driver hit my car & her insurer, Amica, wants to declare my car totaled. However, there is a lien on my car and Amica said they'd pay off loan, but that would leave me with nothing to work with to get another vehicle. I am, at this time, in a re...
As a NM attorney based in Albuquerque, I must tell you that AMICA is only required to pay you the market value of the vehicle irrespective of what you owe on the vehicle. You are upside down in your loan. Give me a call at 505-883-5000 and I would be happy to give you more detail of your rights under NM law.See question

says no proof of damage, although made out an accident report stating $949.00 damages, and multiple pictures available
Hopefully you only have property damage and no personal injuries. Then you should just file a lawsuit in small claims court and let a judge decide against the insurance company. It appears like you have all the evidence you need to prove the judge that you have a valid claim.See question
I called the company they said take us to court. Driving down the highway a truck in the far left lane had rocks come off its bed while carrying a bobcat . I had a witness in the driver seat say when everything was falling off to get over well I c...
It would be much easier to have your own insurance company pay for the windshield. However, you should be able to sue in the county where the incident took place. No lawyer will take your case. You need to sue in small claims court. The company may just be testing you to see if you are serious about the claim. If you file a small claims suit, they may have to hire an attorney and get the driver back to your state for a court appearance. This would cost them too much money, and they would settle. Don't forget to add the new court costs to the total amount of your claimSee question
Fault is dictated by the actions of the parties involved, not the type of vehicle involved. A good indicator of fault may be the police report. The officer appears at the scene shortly after the vehicular accident, talks with the parties and witnesses, evaluates the damage to the vehicles, considers the design of the roadway and ultimatley makes his best conclusion about who is at fault. Police reports are sometimes wrong, but I have found that they are the best indicator of fault.See question
So many people had been bugging me about my case that I now also became curious of how much is my case worth?
You should have frank and open discussions with your attorney. It is absolutely OK to discuss the value with your attorney. All communications between you and your attorney are confidential. Your lawyer may not be yet able to tell you the value if you haven't finished treating with doctors.See question
i did not go to hospital and as a result i now have 3 hernias and may have to quit driving. the insurance was on my own tractor trailer.
First, you need to determine who was at fault. You can bring a claim against the other person's insurance company if they were at fault. Second, you need your physician to state whether the hernias were a direct cause from the impact in the collision. Is your doctor willing to state that you received permanent injuries that will prevent you from driving. Third, you should contact a personal injury attorney to help you. Sit down with the attorney over a cup of coffee at a free consultation and let him ask you some questions that will help determine what your next step should be.See question
I was coming out of a parking lot. I live in CA. What all should I do
You should immediately file your own police report at your local police station AND you should immediately contact your own insurance company. You should be able to get the damages to your vehicle repaired under your own uninsured motorist coverage which covers hit and runs.See question
