Is my employer liable for the damage to my car for an accident that occurred while I was on duty.
Why? Did your employer do something wrong? The one who caused damage to your car is responsible for your damage. If another driver, then hopefully he/she has insurance. If you caused the damage, then you are responsible.
Do I need pay back my med insurance for bills they have covered for an accident where the other drivers insurance paid me?
If you are talking about health insurance, the answer is: Maybe. Different types of plans have recovery provisions, and different states have differing laws on this issue. It is best to check with an attorney in your area experienced in these matters. Most experienced personal injury attorneys know this area of the law well.
Can the other drivers car insurance company accept liability, return my deductible, then deny my bodily injury claim?
Can they? Yes. This happens all the time. Your avenue of recovery is through the courts. Luckily for EVERYONE, insurance companies don’t get to make the final decision.
My attorney says they are filing a complaint against the insurance company what does that mean?
A “Complaint” is generally the name given to a lawsuit. Your attorney is filing a lawsuit against the other party.
The car that hit me while i was riding a bicycle has no insurance, what’s my next step?
Were you injured? Do you have medical bills? Do you have a car? Insurance? There may be an avenue that way.
The person who hit you is no less responsible just because he/she doesn’t have insurance. I suggest you talk to an experienced personal injury attorney.
If my son was involved in an automobile accident and he was at fault , can we sue if there are injuries. we had full coverage?
Who would you sue, and for what? Your son was at fault. There is no one responsible for his injuries but him. He cannot sue himself.
