Actually there is some case law on this that says you can hold the other driver responsible and if there was a recent visit to a mechanic and a problem wasn't fixed, you could even hold the shop liable.
It doesn't matter what form you use, it will be rejected as untimely. The Clerk of the Board of Supervisors in the County in which the action is pending will likely have a form. It's probably available on their website, but your are too late.
There is white paint on driver's door of his black car, which was backed into spot left of me. I have silver car with no damage on it. They dropped it off at paint shop today and texted me price to pay.
You should try to explain to him that you did not cause this damage to his car. It is always better to try to resolve these matters by talking to your landlord directly to find an amicable resolution. However, if he insists that you caused the damages, he will have to file a lawsuit against you to...Read more »
I am getting sued for damages and personal suffering. The date to appear is june 4th 2021. I am no longer working for the company and the company has gone under since then. Should I appear by myself or should I contact amazons legal department and see if they can help?
The Company's insurance will defend you regardless of the fact that the Company has gone under. The police report likely has the name of the Company's insurer, and the policy number. That should be all you need to contact it and ask for it to defend you.

The evidence clearly indicates the other driver's fault; in fact, my agent suggested that was true in an email. Since the other driver's insurance refused my claim, I had to go through my own insurance, which required a $500 deductible. I'd like to recover that. Is Small Claims Court... Read more »
You cannot just go and sue to recover your deductible. You took money from your insurance company. It also has a right to recover from the at fault driver. You each own a piece of the same claim, and it has to be presented in the same lawsuit. You need permission from your insurer to pursue the...Read more »

So sorry to hear this. Yes, you can sue. Winning is always another matter, but, unlike criminal law, which requires a verdict "beyond a reasonable doubt" in civil law, you need only "more likely than not" or 50% plus a smidge. Still, they can admit fault and there be an...Read more »
A person must use reasonable care in driving a vehicle. Drivers must keep a lookout for pedestrians, obstacles, and other vehicles. They must also control the speed and movement of their vehicles. The failure to use reasonable care in driving a vehicle is negligence. (CACI 700).
They called me 4 days after I reported that I was in a collision and informing them that I was at fault.

You can't sign for your wife. Once she passed, the only remaining part of her claim was for her medical expenses and wage loss, if any. The insurer can withdraw its offer if there was no acceptance by her.
Or insurance the police gave him a pink ticket and he has court case, he said i grabbed the strearing wheel and tried to crash on purpose. How can you know if the court opens a case against his accusations
The penalty will depend to a great extent on the statute of conviction, and could range from little to no time in custody to several years in custody. For example, criminal negligence or reckless behavior could result in a relatively light sentence for someone with no criminal history (note that...Read more »
