ipersonal injury claim
does the at- fault drivers insurance company have the right to my past 3 years tax returns to determine my income potential. I was a contract worker or self employed. I have given my form #1099s for the last 2 years. My injury was on 1-16-06. The other drivers insurance has paid to supplement my income till now,but suddenly has asked for this information.

Re: ipersonal injury claim
It is likely they are seeking this information to verify your claim for lost wages. Keep in mind that there is a statute of limitations that will require a lawsuit be filed prior to the 2 yr anniversary of the date of the accident (if this is an Ohio case). A good personal injury attorney may likely be able to recover a better result, even after their fees, as they will be fully aware of all issues, such as the question you are asking. Please contact me should you have any other questions.
