You need to contact a California personal injury attorney ASAP to help you complete and submit the proper claim forms to the city that employs the police officer. Just, please, don't waste any time doing so, since California law requires that government claims be filed within 6 months of the incident. And, since just about all of us personal injury types offer free consultations, you have no reason not to call right now.See question

What happened to your child is absolutely horrible and unacceptable. You need to contact a personal injury attorney ASAP. Time is of the essence when it comes to suing governmental entities--that is, you only have six (6) months to file a claim.See question

I'm so sorry to hear about your son. In sounds like the insurance carrier may have paid his bills through the med pay coverage the homeowners have on their policy. In any case, in order to get compensated for his pain, suffering, etc. (as well as any future medical care your son may need), you need to submit a demand letter to the carrier. However, I would highly advise you to, at least, consult with an attorney before submitting any further information to the insurance company. Going up against insurance claims adjusters without experience in pursuing claims or knowledge about the internal insurance company procedures, is, in fact, going to devalue your son's case. Your son, clearly, has sustained a very serious injury and has (and will continue to) endured a lot of pain and suffering. You and your son both really need an attorney on your side in this situation.See question

I handled a case very similar to yours just recently. (Basically, the insurance company for the at-fault party is saying that there is no 'mechanism of injury.') Don't waste your time trying to fight with this carrier, for what you rightfully deserve, without the help of an attorney. In fact, someone in your position should always have an attorney on their side when dealing with insurance companies (and their adjusters). It is amazing how differently they handle claims when the claimant is represented by counsel, as opposed to an individual with little knowledge of their legal rights. Going up against insurance claims adjusters, without experience in pursuing claims, knowledge about the internal insurance company procedures, and the ability to initiate civil litigation smoothly, if required, is, in fact, going to devalue your case (if it hasn't already).See question
I was rear ended in traffic accident. I feel tight in my back and want to get checked out. Do I call the other drivers insurance?
Do yourself a favor and contact a personal injury attorney before having any kind of direct communication with any insurance carrier. (You don't want to make any statements that might harm your case.) Going up against insurance claims adjusters, without experience in pursuing claims, knowledge about the internal insurance company procedures, and the ability to initiate civil litigation smoothly, if required, is, in fact, going to devalue your case.See question
I took my son the the hospital for a broken arm. How long do I have to file the cliam.
It depends on whose negligence caused your son's injury. The statute of limitations, to sue for a personal injury, in California, is two (2) years. HOWEVER, if the claim is against a governmental entity, then you only have six (6) months to file it. In any case, you should really consider consulting with an attorney to see if your son even has a valid claim.See question

The passenger would file a claim with the driver's insurance carrier. However, the passenger should seriously consider consulting with an attorney before communicating with the insurance company. Going up against insurance claims adjusters without experience in pursuing claims or knowledge about the internal insurance company procedures, is, in fact, going to devalue his/her case. Furthermore, the victim of a car accident really needs to worry about one thing - getting better.See question

I know how frustrated (and concerned) you must feel. However, it sounds like you called attorney today. Give him/her at least a few hours (if not until the end of the day today or tomorrow) to get back to you. You never know--there might be a reasonable explanation.See question

Honestly, unless you and/or any member of your family suffered any kind of an injury, you really don't have a valid claim to bring against them. Just be thankful that you are all okay.See question
