You didn't say what the issues are. I suggest you contact a member of the Arizona Trial Lawyers Assn in the county where the wreck happened. They give free consults, and can tell you your rights. Don't give a statement to an insurance company until you speak with the AZTLA member.
I rented a "sports" car for my vacation car for a week around 7AM. By 9AM I was on an intersection wanting to make a left turn. I had the green arrow in the traffic light so as I was about to turn, about 40-50 yards out a car hits the peddle and comes speeding down... Read more »
An Arizona attorney could advise best on this, as it would involve state-specific elements of insurance law for motor vehicle accidents. But your question remains open for four weeks. You probably have by now, but if you have not, I'd recommend consulting with an Arizona attorney because you...Read more »
A half dozen cars were turning left into the mall. One took aim at the front of my truck and kept smashing through until her entire side was damaged, instead of stopping on impact. Two teen girls were watching. My truck was not drive-able. She pulled over 200 feet into the mall lot and never got... Read more »
There is no legal mechanism for an individual to initiate criminal charges. In this sense, there is no such thing as "pressing charges." A victim may only agree to cooperate with the law enforcement agency. For charges to be initiated you would have to convince the police to file a report and...Read more »
Looks like you will receive a citation. If it was a protected area could be citations on that as well. If it was an area around a military facility you may have additional charges it it was posted as a restricted area.
You report it to your insurance and let them handle it. DO NOT DISCUSS THE CLAIM with any callers. Take their information, give them the adjuster assigned to your claim, the claim number for your insurance, and the contact number. Take their information and give it to the adjuster. STOP THERE>
There wasn't a question here. If you're wondering which vehicle would be at fault, the one making the U-turn is generally accepted to be at fault. You could contact an Arizona traffic ticket attorney to discuss your best course of action. Good luck

Assuming you were injured, and the two years has not run, you can make a claim against the other driver. Trying to sue someone over the court mess won't get you anywhere. Congratulations, though on unscrambling it. As to the bills, depending on what they are etc you may be able to collect on those...Read more »
There may be a claim for bad claims handling--why not contact a member of the Arizona Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults. Review with them what happened in the wreck--you may have a concept of injury different from the legal definition.
I have a car that overheated and went to a mechanic to fix it. He told me that I have to replace the fan with a new one so I was ok with it. He ordered an aftermarket fan and replaced it. After 3 months the car overheated. I called him and said the car overheated and he said to bring it back to the... Read more »

It sounds like you acted with the best of intentions in handling the award. From your description, it looks like you may have settled the case yourself. Even if an attorney was involved in handling the award under an infant comp order, it's hard to say if they would have done better with a more...Read more »
The situation as you outlined may be the outcome. From a practical standpoint, the recovery on a case is typically limited to the insurance proceeds. You should sit down with your attorney to discuss your legal rights as well as the best practical approach to proceed forward with the case. You...Read more »
If you were injured, you could check with an Arizona attorney what your options are. From the facts given, it doesn’t appear that you got the plate number. Police were not called. If there were any traffic cameras at the crosswalk, an attorney might be able to look into how long their data was...Read more »
I gave my car to a friend. He won't pick up his phone for 3 days now. He returned my vehicle then hopped in it and told my kids he was going to the studio. I never told him he could. Can I press charges. He won't bring it back
Hopefully your son is okay! The good news is that in Arizona, he can still recover from the at-fault party even if he was not insured. If he was insured but the at fault party was not insured, then you can still recover with the likelihood depending on whether your son has uninsured motorist...Read more »

Old ins. co. called said they are going to serve me to extend the case past 2 yrs statute of limitations in 1st wk of April 18'. The $1k settlement did not cover all my expenses. I have moved on though. They were taken away in an ambulance but walked to it.
You say you settled. You say there are fees. If the fees were for a lawyer, ask the lawyer what to do. If you are sued your insurance company needs to know and be involved. They will have a lawyer represent you.
Got a failure for speed/prudent ticket, defetion of both are false to my actions, I had control and as a human driver could not possibly stop in time from collision of car in front only being in middle of intersection. Remember I took off from a stop light, I barely got my foot on the gas pedal,... Read more »
You will have to explain why you assumed no one would stop. You weren't going that slowly because or you didn't leave enough room betweeen you and the car in front, because the offenses would be driving at a speed that would not allow you to stop within the "assured clear distance ahead" which...Read more »
