Cape Coral, FL asked in Car Accidents for Florida

Q: If I haven’t heard anything about a automotive accident what should I do?

My boyfriend and I coown my car. This morning he got into an accident with the car which had no insurance and his license is suspended. The other driver came into contact with him going 50mph on a 35mph street but he was named at fault because he ran a red light, so far I have no been notified about anything and I can’t seem to get any information. I finally got ahold of the place that towed my car and it was considered a total loss. What do I do ?

A: Be ready to negotiate settlement with the other car's driver; you are probably liable for letting your boyfriend drive the car. And start saving for another car. Next time, please don't have a car without insurance.
