Car accident: Same insurance as other driver..... and same investigator?

I was involved in a sideswipe accident on the freeway yesterday. It turns out the the other driver and I both have Progressive Insurance. I spoke with the investigator today, and apparently she is also acting as the investigator for the other driver. My Google searches about this have turned up a lot of mentions of 'conflict of interest', and that it probably isn't great for the customer. What should I watch out for? Should I request a second investigator (I feel like that would be rocking the boat quite a bit....)? Is this actually allowed? Any and all info is greatly appreciated - this is my first auto incident. Thanks!

Should I sign this waiver?

Each year, my employer funds my HSA; my current balance is significantly higher than my yearly out of pocket limit, and so I would like to put a portion of it into mutual funds. The institution where my funds are, ubt.com, has HSA mutual funds but they require that I sign a certain waiver. [more inside]

Conflict of interest, but what could possibly go wrong?

Our lawyer, who is amazing and awesome, told me this morning she was considering bidding at the same auction we will bid at this weekend. She hadn't realised until we sent her the contract to look over. Obviously this is a conflict of interest, and my first reaction was that we should find a new lawyer, but on more careful reflection I'm failing to think of how it could really matter. What could actually go wrong here? [more inside]

I won't give you the money, even though you may give me some money in the future, honest

Conflict-of-interest-filter: I work for X as a consultant. One of our roles is advising a client A how much they should pay Y. Recently the consultant arm of Y has approached me about potentially working for them in the future. I am genuinely interested in the job and have satisfied myself that I could consider this without affecting my judgement in advising client A, but am concerned about how it could look to outsiders. Advice? [more inside]
