Q: Was I at fault And could I sue him for demanding to the car?
I was in a car accident. It was night time 2:30am so it was not busy. I ran out of gas and had my emergency lights on. I was checking my rear view mirror when I saw a car speeding up the hill. I blown my horn but it was too late. The guy seems to be drunk. He told the officers he just has laser eye surgery. He said he wasn't going fast and I didn't have any lights on which I had my emergency lights on and the car lights was on. The officer arrested him for Dui. Could I sue him
A: Yes the driver was at fault whether he was dui, laser surgery or just careless. Consult with experienced attorneys in the state where this occurred.
