Can the pizza company/restaurant get away with not covering this? How can they just tell their drivers to carry insurance and then be off the hook? We are in California.
The short answer is no. Since the pizza driver was in the course and scope of his employment at the time of the collision, then his employer can be held liable. Your friend needs to contact a local personal injury ASAP. Most, if not all, of us offer free consultations. So, there is no reason for your friend not to call right now.See question
I have seen the scar that is left on his left eyebrow and he is seeing things that are there.
Based solely on the limited information you have provided in your post, your husband could have a potential 42 U.S.C. § 1983 claim (among others). Since your husband is still an inmate, he is going to have to satisfy the PLRA (Prison Litigation Reform Act) exhaustion requirement--i.e., file a grievance--before filing any kind of a lawsuit against the proper governmental entity.See question

To answer your first question, the settlement amount a victim "should expect"--which would include special damages (such as medical bills) and general damages (such as pain & suffering)—in just about every personal injury case (including yours), really depends on several factors, which include (but, are not limited to) the following: the nature, extent & severity of injuries; the amount of medical bills & lost wages (which you do not appear to have) incurred; the amount of future medical care (if any); age; and, so on. Using such information, your lawyer (that is, assuming that you have hired one to handle the case) should be able to give you some idea of an amount you should expect.
However, in the event that you have not hired an attorney to assist you with this matter, then I highly recommend that you do so. I say this is because 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 dealing with an attorney, as opposed to an individual with little knowledge of their legal rights.See question
Negotiation with the liable insurance company for auto collision bodily injury
You can't--Colussus is a computer program used by insurance companies. Also, keep in mind that, since it based on a formula, it does not take into consideration the true extent of a car accident victim's pain and suffering. Contact a personal injury attorney to get an idea of the true value of your claim (which is based on several factors, including (but, not limited to) the following: the nature, extent & severity of injuries; the amount of medical bills & lost wages (if you are making such a claim) incurred; age; pain, suffering & inconvenience; and, so on).See question
Was driving came upon many deer missed several then one jumped in front of me. I hit the deer it totaled my Toyota Avalon. My airbags failed to deploy. I did sustain injuries
You can potentially sue the car manufacturer (among several other parties) if your vehicle's airbags failed to deploy, AND as a result, you suffered injuries that you would not have suffered had the airbags deployed.See question
I was rear ended at a red light and pushed at least fifteen feet from left lane to center divide.
Sorry to hear about your accident. To answer your question, victims of automobile collisions, with facts similar to yours, have claims for (1) property damage (unless you were a passenger and was not the registered owner of the vehicle that was rear-ended) and (2) bodily injuries. Assuming that you were injured, you first need to document your injuries by seeing a medical professional (and taking any photos of visible injuries). Once you do that (or if you've already done that), you need to contact a personal injury attorney ASAP. 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 case. Furthermore, the victim of a car accident really needs to worry about one thing - getting better. So, do yourself a favor, at least consult with a personal injury attorney. Most, if not all, of us offer free consultations, giving you no reason not to call now.

The City could be liable as well. You need to contact a personal injury ASAP. Don't waste time because California law requires that claims against public entities be filed no later than six (6) months after the incident.

Me and my husband we're sitting in our car when a police officer hit the back of my vehicle so I'm trying to see what do we have to do next we both been to the hospital for injuries so if someone can please help me let me know what's next
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
