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...Read more »
His wife said she told him not to park so close to sign and wind blew sign into car. I was so upset, I told him I couldn't charge him (300 dollars) for his tax return and he came back a few days later with an estimate to fix his car of 450.00. He didn't even take into consideration that... Read more »
This appears to be more of a business question than a legal question. If this client is a valued client who gives you repeat business or referrals, you will want to work out a mutually agreeable settlement with him. You have already done a good job of this by offering a free tax return. Speak...Read more »
A husband who drinks and drives puts his wife at risk of a lawsuit as well as himself. The existence of an insurance policy does not not lessen the wife's risk. Obtaining a separate insurance policy for the husband will not protect the wife from a lawsuit. Your policy should be reviewed as it...Read more »
They admitted fault, tried to make payment but what they offered wasn't enough to fix it. Can their insurance refuse to pay on the basis that their client wants to pay out of pocket. I didn't think that was legal.
Not at all. First it would be inadmissible second it isn't what the case is about. You have a good argument to make if you couched it in terms of believing it was safe to do what you did. Depends on what --hypothetically--someone has been charged with.If you were hurt you may have a...Read more »
Example: Phoenix az cave creek road and 101 intersection. Who has right of way if a car is turning right onto the on ramp at the same time as the left turners get a green arrow to go onto the on ramp since the 2nd left turn lane becomes the right lane of the on ramp? Almost been hit multiple times... Read more »
A lot depends on who is where at what time. They shouldn't have two streams of traffic headed for the same area without a yields sign. With no sign see if your state has a law as to who yields to whom at an unsigned intersection. Suggest you ask your AAA office if they have a traffic safety...Read more »
Today I got an accident when I turned left onto a controlled intersection, as soon as my car crossed into it, the light turned red. As I nearly completed my turn, a car from the rightmost side of the opposing way street hit the side of my car. I even saw the car moving towards my position as I... Read more »
See if there was an intersection camera.Act fast,request in person. If the light normally would go yellow you have a problem as you entered the intersection on a yellow. However worth a consult with an attorney. If you were hurt, contact a member of the Az Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free...Read more »
The car was recovered but it is trashed. My insurance insists on having it repaired but I do not want to do it. The estimate is in progress - the car has lots of scratches, a few dents but it is totally trashed inside - stains, cigarette burns, odor - I am afraid of drug residue and terrible... Read more »

I had backed out to a point my front wheels were at the back of the car next to me. I have a 2011 SUV big enough to be seen at that point. to any on coming cars or trucks. It was a very wide driveway enough where if a car was impatient or just in a hurry, it still had room to go around without a... Read more »
I was parked, door open 1.5 to 2 feet(not fully opened yet). Other party pulling into space next to me hit the door. Damage to my car is door edge/fame/ Other party's damage is to the right front corner of bumper/headlite(no side damage). The other party called in claim to my insurance. My... Read more »
Well, you can make a claim with the other guys insurance.
If you have an agent ask them to intercede for you. Second, not sure if that statute applies to parking lots (as opposed to opening your door on a street). Ask to talk to the claims handler's supervisor.
This past weekend a friend borrowed a relatives Polaris RZR off road vehicle. The friend got into an accident and caused extensive damage. Unfortunately the relative did not have collision insurance added to his insurance plan. I have a couple questions. First, can the insurance of the friend cover... Read more »
I think you asked this elsewhere. Friend is liable. His homeowners may cover. Unlikely his auto will as you have to read the definitions under "property damage" but it generally tends to exclude off road vehicles --unless while driving your vehicle you hit an off road vehicle.
