harbl, i have a lawyerly question for you

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

here is the scenario:

person A is hurt in an accident and has $20,000 in hospital bills which their insurance pays for. 6 yrs later person B responsible for the accident (who is being sued) settles. can the insurance company now sue for/claim their money back from person A, or, because they settled and the amount is not on public record, do they not have a legal right to?

thanks in advance,
smoove

umm well first i can't give legal advice at all and this is not an area i have any experience in but i can make some guesses. what state is this in?

my guess is this:
whether the money comes from settlement or judgment is not relevant

might be able to keep it to the extent the money paid by B is to cover damage A suffered that was not covered by insurance. so you would have to look into whose claims have priority if the money paid doesn't cover all of the damages. this is all a guess though!

i've lived in aus for a long time but i am nz 4 eva. smoove and i even lived in the same house in wellington, though years apart.

i know a couple of those names but most i'm not familiar with, i'm very out of touch now.

estela, Tuesday, 30 June 2009 01:13 (eleven years ago) link

i am out of touch with every music thing

that's weird that you guys lived in the same house! how? unless it will take forever to explain

btw me and ned raggett had the same spanish teacher in high school, but obv many years apart. she died a few years ago :(

spite n ease (harbl), Tuesday, 30 June 2009 01:16 (eleven years ago) link

i also didn't know that nz was so far away from aus. i thought it was kind of like the us and cuba.

te,he (tehresa), Friday, 7 August 2009 22:07 (eleven years ago) link

huh? i'm still here. i'm getting sort of mad at myself this week because i haven't really done anything. today i was trying to have more self-discipline. it sort of worked but mostly didn't. maybe i will clean the kitchen.

spite n ease (harbl), Friday, 7 August 2009 22:43 (eleven years ago) link

i thought i hadn't seen u in a long time but then u posted as soon as i asked so now i feel dumb but hey no such thing as stupid questions right?

who am i kidding there are a lot of stupid questions.

jergins in my experience watching law and order, most lady lawyers are babes, especially the ones, that work with ada jack mccoy

max max max max, Wednesday, 12 August 2009 01:05 (eleven years ago) link

i don't know jergins. what is a babe? i don't really think of people in those terms tbh

spite n ease (harbl), Wednesday, 12 August 2009 01:52 (eleven years ago) link

maybe you should start. part of working in the judicial system is judging people.

te,he (tehresa), Wednesday, 12 August 2009 02:36 (eleven years ago) link

justice is blind if i'm not mistaken

spite n ease (harbl), Wednesday, 12 August 2009 21:05 (eleven years ago) link

eight months pass...

so harbl:

if a personal injury suit has reached the settlement stage, and then the insurance company of the defendant decides to not sign the release, then they agree to but they write out the check 'incorrectly', and now the judge has told them they will have to pay $1000 per day they are late writing out a check that can actually be cleared.... well, what do you think this means? they can't pay? they're going bankrupt and are stalling for time so they don't have to fork out any money? once a settlement has been reached and they have signed a release, is there anyway they can get out of paying it?

smoove operator, Thursday, 15 April 2010 05:26 (ten years ago) link

ummmmm this is not really a lawyerly question. i don't know about insurance companies or any type of business. i do know you can get out of paying by being "insolvent," i.e., bankrupt. could be what's happening, or they're just jerks.

spite n ease (harbl), Thursday, 15 April 2010 20:41 (ten years ago) link

yeah i know, but you're pretty smart, i figured you might know more than me about this kind of situation!

harbl, i have a lawyerly joke for you

jergins, Friday, 16 April 2010 05:59 (ten years ago) link

jaq really is one of those ppl who knows everything!

update: the insurance co coughed up the check at the last minute, albeit with as many complications/obstacles as they could muster.

smoove operator, Friday, 16 April 2010 18:03 (ten years ago) link

let's hear this joke, jergy

spite n ease (harbl), Friday, 16 April 2010 19:55 (ten years ago) link

jaq really is one of those ppl who knows everything!

what makes her the best is she's one of those people that knows a lot but isn't condescending about it, just helpful and nice. so gd rare

oh you guys, making me blush. idk anything about getting money out of insurance companies - boo for their procrastinating foot-dragging you-are-not-the-boss-of-me check writing tantrums. I hope it clears.
