Am I liable for my aide getting injured while running an errand for me?
I have an aide who helps me with daily activities like getting me groceries. She is not licensed or insured, just a person I pay to help me. If she, say, gets into an auto accident while running an errand for me, am I liable for her medical bills, etc.? Is there some kind of insurance I could buy to protect me?

When a settlement happens after a claim, can payments be made or how does this work?
I currently have PIP and Property Damage coverage on my car, i was unaware i did not have bodily injury protection, being my father had did the renewal after he had a stroke. I got into an accident two weeks ago, the car in front of me had stopped short and before I was able to avoid hitting him , his hitch went into the driver side bumper. He said he was fine and was walking and joking around with the officers after the accident. I got a call yesterday from my insurance that he made a claim for bodily injury. The last day of the grace period to make a claim. His car had no damage only a dropped bumper whereas my bumper and hood were damaged. With him claiming bodily injury two weeks later, and me not having the bodily injury on my insurance, what can I do? I don’t have any assets in my name as all the assets are under my husband or my parents . I’m scared of what’s going to happens because I can’t lose my license as it’s how I get to work. But I also don’t have much to my name. I’ve never been in this situation as we have always had the bodily injury added to our insurance.

Should I hire my own attorney?
Two years ago, I was pulling into a parking spot, and my driver’s side mirror hit a pedestrian. I did not see her due to the glaring sun and windshield pillar. She has brought a civil suit against me, and my insurance company stated they have an attorney to defend me. However, I received a letter today from them stating if I wanted to hire my own attorney then I can do that? Is this something I should consider or will I be ok relying on the insurance company’s atty? Thank you!
