You can quickly resolve it by paying the fine (which may include restitution). However, if you would rather contest it, an attorney can go to court for you and resolve it without you having to come back. An attorney would be able to get the police report and figure out different options of how to...Read more »
The driver of the car initiated a left turn into a school and stopped a foot in the lane of traffic of the motorcycle who was traveling in the opposite direction. The car didn’t hit the motorcyclist.

I do not practice in Utah, but your question remains open for four weeks. A local attorney could best advise on the operation of Utah's vehicle and traffic laws. However, as general legal doctrine, one can be liable for an accident even if they do not actually physically impact the other vehicle....Read more »
Generally, you are an at will employee which means barring a union or an employment contract you can be let go for no reason at all--reasons just go to whether there is an EEO complaint, whether you can collect unemployment insurance.
Suggest you contact a member of the Utah Assn for...Read more »

At work l opened my door too fast without looking and bumped the car next to me, leaving a dime sized dent on their door. I don’t know who owns the car and no one was around, so I left a note with my contact info, my car info and my insurance info. Do I contact the police or my insurance now?
Well, if you owe them the money for the damage you caused, it seems that they simply applied "self-help," and got the money back from you quickly through your check. I don't know that there is any legal action you can bring to recover the money, unless you truly don't owe the money to them....Read more »
I was involved in a car accident in 2015 where the responding officer unfairly ticketed me as the cause of the accident when the person I hit made a blind turn. I fought the ticket and won and both insurance companies accepted he was 100% at fault. Now, 2.5 yrs later, hes still threatening suit for... Read more »
From what you have stated, I don't think so. A claim for Intentional/Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress requires a showing of something truly horrific. Making threats against your insurance company would not qualify. If they were constantly in contact with you and threatening you...Read more »
I was running back to work for an emergency and stopped for an oncoming car at the beginning of a crosswalk, with one foot on the street. She very suddenly stopped also, and I attempted to waved her on, but before she moved, she was hit by a car turning left (from a stop sign). They started to... Read more »
I was in an accident where a car had no blinker on and I pulled to the right of him to turn right. He then turned right into me. Who is at fault for this accident? I had plenty of room to turn right and did not squeeze into turn right. There was no right turn painted on the road, just enough... Read more »

Are you saying you don't want to have your driver's license reinstated? The Department of Licensing are the ones that determine whether or not to revoke or reinstate your license. Give me a call if you have further questions.
You may be able to get a claim under your insurance as an uninsured claim. Speak with a Utah attorney ASAP if that is where the accident occurred. They can also help you confirm if the defendant is truly uninsured. Sometimes they are tricky. Order a full copy of your insurance policy and have it...Read more »
