Please tell me the statute of limitations on indemnity. This is in regards to a lawsuit between an automobile insurance company and myself.
The insurance company is suing me for damages that they paid to their insured who ran into my stationary vehicle. The accident occured in February of 96. I was served with the lawsuit in January of this year.
Because I did not have insurance at the time of the accident and because I had a crummy attorney who dropped the ball in 96, I have recovered nothing for my damages which include a totaled vehicle, medical bills and lost wages. I tried to sue the person who ran into me in small claims court, but the judge denied my claim.
Do I have any recourse in this matter? Can I cross complain in this suit against the insurance company?
Thank you for your help.
