I was insured for $200K liability and got into an accident in 2011. The other party had a fractured ankle and filed a lawsuit against me after almost a year, asking for monetary compensation of about $70K, well under my coverage.
I have now moved to a different state and switched my insurance company. The lawyers representing the original insurance company will come to get a deposition from me. They say it may take up to half a day. Also, I have to go for a court appearance in the original state, for about 3 days.
All that incurs some overhead for me, like taking time off from my job, which has some side effects. Can I ask them for a waiver from appearance?
Also, since I am losing work days, can I ask them for compensation for the lost times?
