I was driving at around 40 mph to my girlfriend's house on a gravel road, and we came up a hill and there was a long row of gravel piled up in the middle of the road. This is a major arterial road, and there were no warning signs, so as a result, it destroyed my scrape guard underneath my car,... Read more »

My daughter was driving my car no insurance , was in an accident , a car ran a red light and hit her , and now the insurance company said they did their own investigation and finds my daughter at fault can they do that

Yes, they can do that---but you do not have to accept the conclusion of the insurance company. You can make them take you to court and prove their case before a Judge. Likewise, if you are seeking money from the insurance company and they want to pay you nothing or less than what you believe you... Read more »

I'm not sure what your question is. If you've been charged with a crime or a traffic offense, then you should retain a criminal defense attorney. If you are being sued for civil damages and you'd like the opportunity to prove the accident was not your fault, then you should retain... Read more »

Yes. Find one who handles citations in that court. Make sure person was paid. Ask them for something showing they paid that your son can show the Court.

The owner of the vehicle or the company. Any licensed driver of the vehicle would be held responsible for any violations. The company may later be subjected to civil suit for any violations they subjected an employee to.

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.
I am now 22 and have found out that the lawyer is not really working my case and has lost 2 years of my file. I have never signed a agreement with the lawyer but she holds me responsible for certain costs not my mother. Can I change lawyer and not owe her 33 1/3 of a new lawyers settlement.
answered on Jun 22, 2016
When you say she's not working on it, have you sat down and looked at the file? I would contact a member of the Nebraska Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults.See what they say/advise.

Yes. It depends on the type of tort. For example, intentional tort claims have a 1 year limitation period, where claims arising out of negligence must be filed within 4 years of the date of discovery.
