Asked in Car Accidents, Personal Injury and Criminal Law for Kentucky

Q: My car was vandalized, rammed by the vandals and drove away after I blocked their path. Can I sue?

I was sitting in my car when two guys shot at my car with a paint ball gun. They were unaware I was in the car at the time and drove into a nearby fast food deive thru. I yelled at them to apologize for what they did and when they rejected that, I blocked them in the drive thru. They then rammed my vehicle out of the way and drove off. I followed them and recorded their license plate. I have filed a police report, an insurance claim, and had an accurate read on their license plate, as well as descriptions of those who were in the vehicle. Im currently sitting in the emergency room with a stiff, sore, and painful back and neck.

A: Yes. You can contact a personal injury lawyer to determine what claims you may potentially recover on but yes if they were at fault and they caused injury to you you should be able to file a civil lawsuit.
