His insurance company got me a rental car and now I was informed I have to return it tomorrow. Their garage totaled out my car now they say the check for the van has to be paid to this shady lien holder so now I’m going to be stranded and no money. I’m disabled and I don’t get money until the... Read more »
I'm very sorry that all these things are happening to you on top of the recent loss of your husband. Unfortunately, when it comes to rentals, the allowances are strictly monitored. Once a check is cut, or once a determination of damage is made, that's about the end of the line for the rental....Read more »
You should check with an Alabama traffic ticket attorney for actual statutory authority on this issue, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general matter throughout many jurisdictions, the act of doing that is codified as "avoiding a traffic control device," or something to that...Read more »
I hit a car from behind. It was night time and raining. The car was at a complete stop in the middle of the road (right lane) without lights on or emergency lights. The driver said he had run out of gas. By the time I was able to see the car I could only slam on the brakes causing me to slide until... Read more »
I depends. If the other driver's battery worked, then the hazard lights should have been on. If there was an emergency lane, then the car should've been over in it and not in the middle of the road. But maybe there were reasons it wasn't.
Alabama is a contributory negligence state, which...Read more »
Depends. They can proceed if you clear the way--they don't have to wait for you to finish. If there was a collision, a lot depends on who is where, when. If they could see you were going back and forth they should have waited.
In my opinion - it "could" be a basis for a lawsuit, but it really depends on the other circumstances. Your inquiry doesn't indicate the AMOUNT of grass clippings or HOW the grass clippings caused the accident/injury, and without this information, I don't think a definitive answer can be given. The...Read more »
As a general matter throughout the nation, some jurisdictions have local regulations/codes that treat such clippings as hazards to the public or to traffic. This is aside from any state and local environmental or sanitation regulations that might apply.
Yes, you would have a claim for the property loss, medical bills, pain, and suffering. You could also recover your lost wages if you have proof that you missed work as a result of the injuries suffered in the accident. The property claim is separate from your bodily injury claim. Thus, you can...Read more »
Not sure what papers you mean. If you mean a claim for injuries you want to first get with a member of the Ala. Assn for Justice in your town--they give free consults. Otherwise you could do things, say things that get you into trouble. If you have a claim get legal advice.
You should consult an attorney who handles car accident cases and provide them with as much information as you have. You may also be able to retrieve the police report from the investigating police entity. If you do not know then consider contacting the police in your area. We hope that you are...Read more »
Generally you do not have to wait. The property damage claim is a separate claim from your bodily injury claim which includes claims for medical bills. You should make certain that there is no language on the endorsement section of the check that states you are waiving all claims related to the...Read more »
Insurance says each party responsible for their own vehicle. Police report stated it was other drivers fault. Can I fight the liability determination by insurance? Both of us are represented by same company
Is it your policy adjuster who says that or their policy adjuster? What does the police report show? Where is damage to the cars? Wintesses? If you have collision file it with yours and ask them to go after the other persons.
the truck and insurance is in my mother in laws name i wasnt covered and the other person had liability no claim was filed there was 4000$ worth of damage can i go to jail for not being able to pay for this vehicle
Usually coverage follows the vehicle. If you are an excluded driver different states handle this differently. You won't go to jail for anything. But under certain circumstances you could have your license suspended. Be good if you and your mother in law got a consultation with a member of the...Read more »
Pulling in2 a subshop i heard a huge noise under my car!inside i was told a light pole was bing removed,but not completely done!i wondered why the area was not coned off or blocked off & no signs,etc.it did 2800 dollars in damage & i think they were at fault 4 leaving it unmarked/blocked off!

If you have collision, run it through that and let them go after...Read more »
