A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. This might be a tough one because it looks like things were more or less done over a handshake, and repairs seem to have been done outside a shop. Ordinarily when insurance carriers process these PD claims, they...Read more »
There was property damage and no injuries. The officer did field sobriety which I believe I passed, but I was transported to a station where I was given a blood test. I was not given those results but was issued a citation for suspected DUI. Since that time I have not been able to speak to the... Read more »
He doesn’t want me to tell on him but I feel like I’m going to be responsible for his mess. He hit a car and left the scene. While I was sleeping. The police towed it and I never heard anything. Now I’m out of a car. What should I do? I don’t want to get him in trouble and gets mad if I... Read more »
1.) I have never counseled a client to lie and I am not telling you to lie. That said, you need to understand that if you tell the police that your boyfriend took your car, without your permission, you are telling your insurance company that they are not...Read more »
I was technically at fault due to being on a bike. Woman driving the car was messing with radio making a left hand turn. Insurance adjustor is pressuring me to settle tonight or I'll get nothing because tomorrow is 3 years.
Follow-up questions: Police report places blame on me... Read more »
I should have added, being on a bike does NOT “make you technically at fault”. A vehicle making a left turn is required to yield right of way to pedestrians and bicyclists. I have no idea how the accident happened, but that too is something to discuss with an attorney.
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. There was not a question included in the post, but you might be wondering about your rights here? I hope you weren't injured, but if you were, you could reach out to attorneys to discuss in greater detail. Most...Read more »
I backed into a little tow cart with my car and I did involve my car insurance to make a claim but I want them to cancel my policy and let me pay out pocket for the property damages: so I was wondering how I should go about doing that?
I am prepared to repair the damage but I really had no idea it made contact. I knew I was close but didn’t tell or hear any contact. My car had a light scratch only. The other has a plastic 1/4 panel that will need to be painted and dent removed. I have no criminal or traffic infractions on my... Read more »
Only a North Carolina attorney could advise here, but your question remains open for three weeks. If you haven't already done so at this point, you could reach out to local attorneys to discuss handling of the matter (while at the same time looking into arrangements to cover the property...Read more »
That's easy - just look at the traffic signals statute, Fla. Statutes Sec. 316.075, at http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0300-0399/0316/Sections/0316.075.html Regarding green arrows, it states: Vehicular traffic facing a green arrow...Read more »
The Attorney I hired for the personal injury, referred me to a workers comp attorney as well. I have reached MMI after a lumbar fusion but I still have a pinched nerve in my neck from whiplash that causes complications . My comp attorney is acting like I should just take what WC offers and has not... Read more »
MMI is a bogus concept invented by insurance companies. Be guided by what the injury attorney has to say. It sounds like you have signficant issues, and fusions are never mmi as the person can develop pain and other issues as the fusion puts more strain on the discs above and below the point of...Read more »
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a month. As a general matter nationwide, statutes do not generally include any particular figure for cars overtaken. Most statutes pertaining to left lane violations tend to be phrased "a" vehicle or...Read more »
Traffic came to complete stop I had my truck in neutral and left about one car space in front off me so wen traffic started to roll I put it in second gear to take off as I let go off the clutch about 2-3 miles per houre I felt like I pushed something so I stoped from going forward I don’t know...

You can certainly request it, but to find out whether the judge would consider it, call the judge's judicial assistant and ask him/her. You might be required to file a motion to make that request and to set your motion for a telephonic hearing. Or you might be told, "no, you filed suit...Read more »
It depends on your carrier. Your insurance only covers "licensed drivers." Given that his license was revoked, your brother was NOT a licensed driver. Any carrier could use such an opportunity to legitimately deny a claim. That you were unaware is irrelevant unless he stole the car....Read more »
Yes, the statute you cited requires you to notify the police. The fact that you notified your insurance company is not considered in regards to a violation of this statute. If you are charged with this offense, I suggest that you hire a good lawyer as you're looking at the possibility of jail...Read more »
I then found out that my I insurance had lapsed. I had no clue my husband first all that. I had insurance the next day. I believe that both parties involved are at fault . I shouldn’t have assumed she was going to be going as fast as she was. It’s kinda a blur but I remember the light was... Read more »
A Utah attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. I'm sorry about your accident. I hope everyone is okay here. You put a number of issues on the table. In terms of fault, a Utah attorney familiar with the state's vehicle and traffic law AND the signage/traffic...Read more »
Second the no insurance I wasn’t aware that my insurance company dropped me until the accident happened and that’s when I was informed my insurance was dropped two days prior to the accident but I wasn’t aware until that day
