Mother-in-law is paying higher premium with car insurance because car insurance is claiming that she is responsible for her deceased husband’s car accidents. How is this fair? She was not the driver responsible causing these accidents.
You do not indicate if you are being sued civilly or criminally. You may qualify for a public defender for a criminal matter but not a civil matter. If it is a civil matter, just turn the papers over to your insurance company which should provide you with counsel. If criminal, ask the court for a...Read more »

Possibly and that is up to a judge. For example in NJ an accident requires damage and if $250.00 or more damage occurs by law if you did not report it you are presumed to have knowledge of the accident and can be issued a ticket for leaving the scene of an accident. $250.00 is a very low...Read more »
I live in Florida and separated spouse took a vehicle I owned out of state (NJ)...allowed another person to drive... had an accident... the injured party is suing...my name is listed...as a potential defendant because the vehicle was registered to me...I have about 30 days to respond.
Call your insurance company and let them know you are being sued. They will most likely assign you counsel. If the vehicle was uninsured you will have to get counsel on your own and to defend against the lawsuit.

I was driving down a street when out of nowhere a man opened his door and it was too late for me to respond so I struck it. I parked my car to check it out and we called the police.

Insurance companies hate this ticket so you would be wise to fight them. Most of us traffic ticket lawyers offer a...Read more »
I hit a cyclist stopped my car and checked he was ok. He was fine just complained bike was damaged. No police called I didn’t make any police report. I now received a hit and run letter from a lawyer claiming property damage. What do I do. The cyclist came out in front of me on a roundabout.
If charged by the police get yourself a good Criminal lawyer you will be facing loss of your license and jail time. If not charged but just received a letter from a lawyer notify your insurance company.
For example, if another driver was at fault, is the victim allowed to show up to court to press charges. Is the victim allowed to press charges based off the fact that they were attending work, missed out on hours, suffered injury, emotional distress and a loss of their vehicle.
If you're looking to press charges for example in municipal Court you do not get money. If you're looking to get money and wages back you need to file a civil lawsuit in civil court. I suggest hiring a good lawyer if you're looking to do this, most of us offer a free in office consultation.
The other driver's insurance company has been contacting me nearly every week to settle the matter for $3,000. He tells me that I do not have much time left.
