Based on my limited knowledge of the facts, it appears that the person operating the vehicle that lost the ATV would be responsible. However, if you had a last clear opportunity to avoid the accident, you could be apportioned some percentage of fault.

lawyer usually gets paid at each stage depending on the contract and if the stages are defineable. Suggest you sit down with your lawyer to figure out what is going on, face to face rather than over the phone.
Very difficult to tell from a verbal--you did a good job but tough to tell. You need to consult a member of the Ark Assn for Justice--they give free consults.Generally, the person who rear ends another is at fault or at least starts out by having to show the other company why they aren't at...Read more »

Turn it over to your insurance company. You are each partially at fault.She should have been looking and wasn't . You have a duty whatever animal it is to keep it off the roadway. Which means stop it from getting on the roadway in the first place.
Liability will rest with the at-fault driver. That driver's insurance (assuming he has it) should cover your damages. If he/she does not have insurance, then your uninsured motorist policy should cover your damages. Whether your husband was an excluded driver could complicate a claim for...Read more »
The other party is threatening to have his cop buddies write me a ticket since they found out my insurance was lapsed and take me to court to pay his fees. I thought I had insurance. It was all on private property in a parking lot and no one got a ticket. He was cutting through the parking spaces... Read more »
Usually no as you are only getting back that which you already paid taxes on. Check with your state representative for starters--has nothing to do with veterans just that it's not "income" in most states. If you had sold the car that would be different--even there you'd be...Read more »
You haven't said who is at fault. The p;roblem if you do is that usually you will say things that torpedo your case--either the fault issue or the extent of your injuries. You need to talk to a member of the Ark. Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults.
Not sure what you mean. If you mean will you be sued, looks like you might. If you don't have insurance worth at least getting a consult on the ticket from an attorney who handles tickets in the county where your ticket hearing would be.
I was injured in a MVA and the other party was found at fault and issued a citation by the state police.

I'd say you could. Even without PD, if you were driving and bac is over 2% if minor. If adult you are near the line that I understand is 8%. If you got a citation get a consultation from an attorney who handles DUI cases, even if you have to pay.
V1 is claiming green arrow to turn left. V2 is claiming green light to go forward in outside lane colliding with V1 passenger side. There were no witnesses and no cameras. This happened 7/5/16 and still V1 insurance company is saying they are still processing the case. We need to know who is likely... Read more »
No one can give you an answer over the internet without seeing the report, knowing the light sequence etc. If the light starts out with an arrow then goes to green, if you were stopped and then went on a left turn while other traffic was held, that's different from other light sequences....Read more »
A child bout 11 or 12 was sitting on the vehicle when it was struck. No relation just a neighbor i believe. The vehicle they were on wasn't moving but when they got hit they all flew off it.

They need to get an attortney who handles criminial charges. A lot depends on where they wre. If they were not in traffic, and no one was behind the wheel maybe the cop just got it wrong. But at this point they need to 1)check and see if there was a camera if it was on the street or in a mall...Read more »
see my answer to your other question. If it gets to be a problem talk to the police; first ask the towing place who they need to hear from: police,insruance what?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=389Rk1jzPMk
I assume you've asked for them. Personal items they should let you have; it'll help if you get your insurance to tell them to let you pick them up. The operating philosophy of towing companies is that they have your car and it' contents to hold as hostage....Read more »
