Q: My daughter let my son who is not covered under my insurance drive her car and he hit someone. No personal injury.

Do I have to pay the guy the 1000 deductible back and pay his insurance the $6,000 that they gave him? The guy is texting me asking me for the deductible back but he also stated that his insurance company will probably come after me for the other money they gave him. What am I supposed to be doing?

I'm sorry but I don't practice in this area of the law. I would suggest you search for someone under auto sales; possibly breach of contract. Your matter deals with a transaction rather than a personal injury such as in a car crash case. You should try to focus in your part of the state... Read more »
