I'm unable to provide specifics about this question, just generalities.

A man's wife was his passenger on the bike when he crashed into something. Whether it was his fault or not, the wife, who was seriously injured, sued her husband.

Well, of course, that means she sued her husband's insurance company.

Does anybody find that to be filled with conflicts of interest?

Aint the law an interesting conundrum at times?

Five or six years ago my mother was seriously injured when getting out of a car parked on a slanted driveway. Apparently the driver didn't get the car all the way into park or something. The two women in their 90's in the front got out okay, but my mother, also in her 90's had just gotten her feet onto the ground getting out of the back when the car rolled back and knocked her down.

The insurance company said that she was at least 51% at fault even though she was totally blind in one eye and had very poor vision in the other. In other words, they didn't want to pay the medical bills.

The only option would have been for my mother to sue her friend, then the insurance company might pay up. She didn't want to do that.

You'll never hear me say a good word about that particular insurance company.
