Just thought I'd see if anyone has dealt with this following an auto accident. To make this short, my car got totalled out in Jan. '04 due to a drunk driver, (his 2nd dwi).He was found legally drunk, went to trial, plead guilty,was convicted of his 2nd dwi, and he never_ gave his insurance company a statement. My insurance company in trying to collect, went to arbitration and lost, (WTF!!!!) reason due because the other guy never gave his statement to his insurance company. Incidentally, my insurance company did reimburse me within a week of the accident,the blue book value on my car, but I had to rent a car for that week and another week til I was able to buy another used car . I feel the other guy's insurance company owes me for the inconvienience their client put me through,(having to rent a car for 2 weeks) plus the medical bills I have, but that's another story. So after arbitration is decided , I take it, the only other thing to do is sue the individual that caused the accident right?
