My family was in an auto accident 2.5 years ago. The insurance company sent me a settlement letter roughly 6 months ago. I sent my response in the form of a demand letter just last week. I received a call from the insurance company saying they wo...
I wouldn't advise speaking to the insurance company without making sure you have everything you need to answer their questions. If the facts differ, adjusters will not let that go unnoticed. Please be advised that the time limit to resolve your claim is 3 years from the date of the accident if you haven't resolved it within the 3 year time limit. You will be out of luck. I agree with Mr. Rounds if you wait too long, many PI attorneys will be reluctant to take your case. You should consult with a PI attorney for a free consult before doing anything further.See question

In order to go through his employer, you will need to determine whether the accident occurred while he was working at the time of the accident. If not, I agree with my colleagues, if you have uninsured motorist coverage on your vehicle, you will need to go through your own insurance with this claim. It might not hurt to call or sit down with a personal injury attorney for an initial free consultation.See question

Intersection was 4 way, no signs. Person who hit me was on my right but I was 98% thru the intersection before she looked up from her phone and then ran into my rear R side bumper.
From your facts, I agree with my colleagues, theother driver more than likely will be more than 50% at fault. If you were injured, you should seek help from an atttorney. If you weren't injured, contact your insurance company and let them handle this matter. Good luck!See question

From your question it appears that your attorney is wanting to associate with another attorney to continue on with your case. Depending on the type of case your attorney is working on, it is common to associate with another attorney who might have more experienced than him/her. Your attorney should have gone over with you how the attorney's fees are going to be calculated on your initial fee agreement and when he/she advised you that he/she will need to associate with another attorney. In most instances, your take home shouldn't be less. Your attorney will split his/her fees (33% or 40%) with the associating attorney. Good luck.See question

First of all, congratulations on giving birth to your baby full-term. Second, insurance company is not in the business of being nice to you and offering you all the money you want. They are in the business of making sure that they pay out as little as possible. My advice is for you to contact one of the car accident attorneys on Avvo and have them review your case. Most attorneys will offer free initial consultation and will take your case on a contingent fee based.See question

Yes. You can file a claim against the other party.See question
County Courthouse in Olympia) - are they both considered the state court? What is the difference?
Are you trying to do this on your own as a pro se? I highly recommend you speaking to a car accident attorney before proceeding on your own. To answer your question in the mean time, if you value your claim to be more than $75,000 then you will need to file it in the superior court. If you value your claim less than $75,000.00 then you should file in the district court. However, there are many other factors you should consider before deciding which court you should file. I highly sugguest you speak with an attorney. Most personal injury attorneys are willing to sit down with you for free consultation.See question
A freeway accident occured when I was rear ended by another driver. I do not have insurance. She does. Can her insurance company deny car repair and medical costs because I do not have insurance?
Yes, if the driver behind you is deemed to be at fault, you will be entitled to get your car repaired and have them pay for your medicals. However, you should consult with a car accident injury attorney who will make sure you are able to get full compensation for your injuries and damages to your vehicle.See question
