My wife was rear ended at a major intersection while at a red light behind other vehicles. Driver was driving his wife's separately owned and separately insured car. Most of his family assets are in wife's name. Driver is successful businessman. Our Med costs exceed $180k so far, with 3 surgeries to date. 4th surgery will push total over $200. My wife is now uninsurable and COBRA ends 10/31.
Driver admitted responsibility. Said he was distracted by cell phone.
Wife's insurer has offered policy limits ($100k). Driver has offered small amount of cash.
Our attorney did not request Verizon records before they became unavailable, nor did he ever add the Driver's wife to the lawsuit. Statute of limitations is long past and trial has not yet occurred.
Any way to add wife to suit, or ?????????
