I have filed a lawsuit in CT in regards to a car accident where the defendant was drunk driving. I have served her initially and she argued that I didn’t include the proof of service so the claim should be denied. The judge ordered me to re serve her and after several attempts and after hiring a... Read more »
If she was DUI, check with the DA's office victim assistance coordinator. Also why are you suing her--if you have collision, let your company do that. Also, you likley have an injury claim. Contact the office of Michael Koskoff--they give free consults. Tell him I suggested you call.
See if there were any intersection cameras or security cameras covering where it happened. Then if you have collision run it through that. If not, if you don't have someone to go after that's it. You may have a casualty deduction on your taxes but talk to an accountant about that.
We didn’t realize our auto insurance policy was cancelled. I now got into an accident where I will most likely be at fault because I was crossing traffic. We just renewed our registration in February and they’re saying our policy was cancelled over a year ago. Do we have any legal right to... Read more »
Not as you've phrased it; they may be supposed to send a notice to DMV but that doesn't help you. However the insurance company must notify you and your state insurance commissioner will tell you what that method is.
The problem is if you moved and didn't tell the company. Did you stop...Read more »

I had an automotive accident in Norwalk, CT at the intersection of Richards Ave and US-1. I approached the intersection facing south in the rightmost lane and was attempting to make a right turn on red. I came to a complete stop and was inching my vehicle forward to see around some other vehicles... Read more »
If he went straight in a lane that was right turn you could rely on him turning right. However, you will, chances are, get some of the fault because you were controlled by a red light and you have the duty to not proceed until and unless it is safe to do so. If other cars blocked your view you have...Read more »
or insurance & plates are registered to a different vehicle/mystery person. The 17 yr old fled the scene but was quickly found and both were arrested. No one was hurt but between depreciation book value and still owing on a car loan, the financial loss is absolutely devastating to me. I have no... Read more »

So then she decided to reverse at full speed and attempt to make a Illegal U-turn, she ofcourse slammed into my parked car. Causing it to slam into a gate on other side. So needless to say it looks as if... Read more »
You were in the totaled car and have injuries. Contact a member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association--they give free consults. You can write the other driver, tell her her /owners insurance has denied, if she doesn't have insurance you will ask to have her and owner's licenses suspended.
Bought and 09 chevy cobalt from a buy here pay here dealership. They never mentioned that the ignition switch had not been fixed and now I'm recieving letters in the mail from GM telling me it needs to be replaced or death/serious injury could occur.
The letters presumably say they will pay. In which case, no harm, no foul. If they aren't a GM dealer not sure they have a duty to check each car for recalls--especially as that can be done as easily by you.
If you have further questions why not get a consultation from a consumer attorney,...Read more »
The new owner is liable to "someone"--but if the someone didn't cancel registration but, for instance, dropped policy of insurance, and new person had no insurance, then the DMV might go looking at the the seller. If "someone" had
insurance on the car then turn the claim over to the...Read more »

If you bought an extended warranty, yes. As far as parts, you can try if you can show it was very recently purchased. However most parts are not recoverable as that is considered "routine maintenance." As to the "lost opportunity" of the used parts you can't use now, I don't see that. However if...Read more »
