    Every New Year I think about a situation where an insurance agent told his client to lie in court so the company wouldn't have to pay a claim. I had an attorney & a witness to the accident, but the witness was unable to attend the hearing as he had just started a new job (in another state) & his employer threatened to fire him.
    My attorney refused to continue representing me (possibly illegal) & I was forced to proceed on my own; I LOST. I wouldn't have lost if the homeowner (an older woman) had not been scared by the agent that "you will lose your home"; he coached her to lie about the circumstances about the accident that caused a serious back injury. I have not worked since & survive on minimal SSD. Not being able to work was the final straw in my divorce.
    The statute of limitations has long expired, but should the insurance company consider a settlement to me under these circumstances? The company is well-known as being "On your side", but apparently not in my situation!
