It's a 2002 Acrua RL with 129000 on it and in great shape. Their insurance wants to only give me Kelly Blue Book value for the car. The shop caused the fire inside of the car and admitted it. Now they want me to settle and I don't agree because I would have to purchase another car and make... Read more »
Generally, in most states they only have to give you the retail value of the vehicle---even if that won't buy you what you lost. Check if that is so by contacting a member of the NC Assn for Justice--they give free consults.
What you do is that you thank yourself for having gap. If you were hurt in the wreck you have an injury claim and should pursue it--contact a member of the Nv. Assn for Justice in the county where it happened--they give free consults.
Hi I was in the mall parking lot and somehow kicked a rock and broke the back window of a Chevy equinox that was 5 feet away , the rear window shattered outwards .. I now read this is common due to heat ... I waited around and talked to the owners and now they went to the cops and want me to pay... Read more »
When you say you kicked a rock--do you mean your car kicked it out or you kicked it with your foot? If you did, it's not a "somehow" --that's going to be believable, because you would have had to be winding up to get enough velocity to break a window.
on the right front fender (I was not a the scene,found it like that). I got fired and now he wants to withhold my commission from a two car sales last week? If this is legal, how can I make sure he is not overcharging for the repair and adding extras to the damage?
Depends on where you and they are, who is doing what, but generally the person on the main roadway--including turning lanes--has the right of way over someone pulling from an alley or a private driveway. If you were hurt contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn in the county where it...Read more »
I am a 17 year old son of a mother who had recently been in a collision with a minor on a bike. The minor turned in front of her vehicle -while she turned into the lane she had waited legally for traffic to allow- from the blind spot made by an adjacent vehicle the minor was biking next to. The boy... Read more »
I am very disappointed in the legal system, at this time. I know there are some good attorneys out there, but I only find the bad ones. Three generations of my family were badly injured in an accident over 4 years ago, and several lawyers have tossed the case around, then handed it back to us. We... Read more »
If you were rear ended chances are the issue is who was hurt and what the medical proof is. If the family has little or no medical coverage, often the problem is that people don't get the follow up attention they need to show their injuries. No, but your word alone isn't good enough. There have to...Read more »
Hit a pole driving with a friend. Police showed up, pulled us from the car, and started administering FST right away. Blew breathalyzer and was arrested afterwards. Taken to station, blew breathalyzer there and blew .16. Released afterwards. No paramedics were called and asked for a lawyer from the... Read more »
Excellent answer from Mr. Oakley. You have a lot at stake and you should get an attorney who handles DUI's in the county where it happened. Hopefully you had insurance because you will have to pay for the pole and other damage. Get an attorney.
What can our family do legally? The person said they didn't see him on his loud Harley, yet hit him on the passenger front side while making a left turn. This was in Arkansas where he lived with his wife and son.
I was involved in a car accident where the other driver made a left turn into oncoming traffic. He is now claiming that I ran a red light and was speeding and caused the accident (not true and the forensic evidence on the vehicles proves that). He has hired a lawyer and has requested the amount of... Read more »
Dodged a deer, got stuck in ditch. Didn't call the police. No one was hurt, truck not damaged. No property damage. Stayed 3 hrs trying to get several ppl to pull it out, but no one could. A neighbor said that in the morning her husband coukd pull it out with a tractor. So we all went home. The... Read more »
You need to get with a lawyer who handles traffic cases before that judge. You don't want to mess with a leaving the scene. If the farmer was there etc. to me it's a defense that those who needed to know were in the know, etc. However state troopers tend to be rigid so get a lawyer.
It was 1a.m, I was sleepy, my right headlight was out, I dozed off for a second too long and hit someone’s mailbox.. I didn’t want to wake the people up about the matter; my tire was flattened so I left my car at friends house close by and caught a ride home; my plans were to go back the next... Read more »
Car damage is settled separately from the injury claim. I suggested having an MD checkup but talk to the lawyer or if they aren't your lawyer have a member of the La Trial Laweyrs Assn consult with you--they give free consults.
Could you please advise about my options here (for suing) or next steps? My family was in utter grief and pain when we heard the results from the first hospital. And which department of law would this type of issue typically falls under?
Contact a member of the Association for Justice of the state where it happened, who practices in the county where it happened, to see if you have a claim of negligence. They give free consults. A lot depends on where it was. A park is not like a shopping center is not like the inside of a store....Read more »
Customer posted Google review with my name capitalized and corporate has tried to contact with no response. The information is a lie and if she would reference her own receipt, then she would be to see no charge. Do I have a case?
As you get more with honey than with vinegar first I would suggest you send her a nice letter saying you are sorry to see she is dissatisfied but if she checks her receipt there was no charge. See what her response is. Then a lawyer should help you with a very carefully worded letter to google.
....looking for my license in my wallet. The officer walked up and his first words to me were “are you Jessica Belber?” I said “yes” and he said “your license is expired”. I was completely shocked and since I hadn’t even handed my license over to the officers yet I looked at my... Read more »
My son just turned 17 and got a used vehicle that does not have day time running lamps. Having learned to drive on a more recent model, he is trying to get used to turning headlights on and off. He was out at night for the first time playing a pick up basketball game at our local community courts.... Read more »
