Q: Can I hold anyone liable for my car "accident"?
Today the roads were terrible in our town. When I say terrible, I mean a complete sheet of ice. For some reason our school district didn't call off school, making it extremely hazardous to drive (let alone teenagers drive). I left my hous early to head to school, and took the nearest main road, until I got stuck and couldn't move my car. My brake light, abs light, and my esc light all came on and now in going To have to deal with a big bill from the car shop. Can I hold the school liable for making people drive in such crappy conditions? Or the city for not salting any roads???? There were 70 reported car accidents in a small city of Nebraska just before noon.
A: I'm not hearing any accident--your car seems to have had some type of electronic coronary. No I don't see any way of holding the school responsible. Nor the city.
