i was recently in a car accident. just got the report and other driver, who was at fault, has no insurance, and told a different story on her statement. Says she "rolled into my van" and that she wasn't sure where she was going and was looking f...
I'm sorry to hear you had to go through this ordeal; it is frustrating when the other driver changes their story once the police have arrived. However, the fact that the other drive changed her story as to how she rear-ended you while you were stopped doesn't change the fact that she rear-ended you; she is still 100% at fault. When you go to obtain compensation through your own insurance company's UIM policy, the focus with regard to your injuries will be on your medical records, including the EMS report, as the police report doesn't go too far into detail over this, if at all. I would recommend that you obtain legal advice with regard to your UIM claim. Most of us here work on a contingency basis, meaning we only get paid if you do. The insurance company's job is to get you to accept the minimum, so you will need someone to help get them up. Best of luck to you.See question

I hit a vehicle in front of me while I was traveling less than 5 miles per hour. The vehicle I hit was uninsured and unregistered. It did have minor damage. The participants in the vehicle denied injury and agreed to take a payment at the scene of...
Unfortunately, the fact they were uninsured has no bearing on the issue. If the other driver has filed suit, it means that they were unable to settle with your insurance company, likely because your insurer didn't agree with the amount of damages they were claiming (considering you were traveling less than 5 mph). Give the complaint over to your insurance company, and they will have to provide you with a defense.See question
I was living work and fell and broke my wrist on my employers property and ground, can I start a work compensation case and a personal injury case or just one, either work compensation or personal injury? thanks
It is very possible that you may have a WC case; I agree that you should speak with one of the Avvo attorneys and provide more information to discern who would be the responsible party. I hope you are able to find some relief after your surgery, and wish you the best of luck.See question

I absolutely agree; you should not attempt to deal with the insurance company on your own. It sounds like you may have a bad faith claim, but we would need more information. Please do not hesitate to contact one of the many attorneys on this site. We have plenty of experience handling this type of situation.See question
The insurance company wants to speak to her. Should we speak to a lawyer first?
Absolutely; I would recommend having her speak to a lawyer prior to speaking with the insurance company. He / she will prepare her for the interview with the adjuster, and can be present for the interview. Best of luck to both of you.See question
they say it is to find out if personally injured will be responsible for paying back medicare or medicaid if any recovery is acquired from them.
Typically, the insurance company needs to run a Medicare / Medicaid search for any liens before they will pay for any damages or bodily injury claims (i.e. Medicare / Medicaid is entitled to be reimbursed if any of your medical bills were the result of someone else's negligence, and you obtain recovery from the incident). In my experience, they will normally reduce their lien by at least 25% if the insurance company won't make a satisfactory offer to settle. So to answer your question, it is a normal request.See question

As long as you can prove that the mold in the apartment was the direct result of your daughter's illness, you may have a case, and you can seek reimbursement of her medical bills and any property damage that was incurred as a result of the mold in the apartment. Good luck.See question
