I'm a uber driver and I went to pickup a passenger where he works. It was snowing and the ground was covered. After picking him up and as were leaving I hit what seems to be a pothole and damaged my passenger front and rear wheel and tire. It was in the way and on their property. I... Read more »
There were class actions under which uber had to pay for insurance for you drivers. If you had collision, run it through that. As to their manager--his property, you can sue the company in small claims.
I have filed a lawsuit in CT in regards to a car accident where the defendant was drunk driving. I have served her initially and she argued that I didn’t include the proof of service so the claim should be denied. The judge ordered me to re serve her and after several attempts and after hiring a... Read more »
If she was DUI, check with the DA's office victim assistance coordinator. Also why are you suing her--if you have collision, let your company do that. Also, you likley have an injury claim. Contact the office of Michael Koskoff--they give free consults. Tell him I suggested you call.
It sounds like you were sued and served with papers? You really need to get your insurance involved. If you received suit papers and you don't have insurance you need to make sure you don't get a default by filing an Answer and entering your appearance "pro se." Check with the local bar association...Read more »
Looks like you will receive a citation. If it was a protected area could be citations on that as well. If it was an area around a military facility you may have additional charges it it was posted as a restricted area.
Mr. Dorfman is right. I'd just say follow up to make sure that it is covered. You should have transfered title and maybe he didn't record it. If you tansfered the plates to your new car paperwork on that would be good.
Likewise if you kept your car insurance, they should cover you for...Read more »
I bumped into an ATT company vehicle 6 months back. My grandfather’s name was on the vehicle and he cancelled the insurance without telling me, so I thought I was driving an insured vehicle. I received a bill in my name for nearly $2,500 a month after the accident and contacted ATT but never got... Read more »
Just to be sure, contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn but no, it is too late. There's a statute of limitations for wrongful death and related claims that is long over. Even if you had a claim as a minor, that would have expired on your 18th birthday or 2-3 years after that, depending on...Read more »
i was given the right of way by the two immediate oncoming lanes. as i processed into the median and i started the turn into the median i was hit by a car travelling straight in the median. the other driver had no license. im being put at fault for failure to yield is that correct?
Depends on circumstances. They didn't come out of nowhere, but if you had begun your passage and they were going to enter the median and could see you they should have yielded to you. However if they were already there, you had to watch out for them.
In addition to what Mr. Richardson said, ask if your state has "wrap around wage loss" which is using the wage loss on your auto policy to cover what comp doesn't cover if your state has a rule that says you are covered while engaged in vehicle related activities---such as getting in and out of a...Read more »
I'm asking because it wasn't taken from me I let a friend use it and then he let his friend use the car and his friend was parked when the car was towed? I can't afford to get it out I live in a shelter and I have no money I dont want to lose the car
I was anonymously accused of drinking at my teaching job. I was forced to leave my room, with all of my belongings. No administrator attempted to speak with me to ascertain if the allegation had any validity. I was then requested (required) to go to an ER to have an alcohol level blood test... Read more »
It can be viewed as a breach of the peace. A lot depends on circumstances. There is no statute that says you can't do that, but other statutes may if you are said to be trying to harass or intimidate. If you are concerned, you can contact the Lambda Legal Aid fund
