The orientation of the cars and an accurate road layout is not fully clear. But in general in most jurisdictions, a vehicle emerging from a lot or...View More
I was in an accident where two cars hit me, and I was completely stopped at a light. Whiplash and post concussion syndrome. Serious MCL, shoulder injury. Doesn’t look like surgery. Having PT and had CT scan done. Taking meds along with daily headaches.
A Connecticut attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. And it would make sense to consult with someone sooner than later because the days immediately following an accident could be accompanied by forms to compete for insurance companies, obtaining police reports, bills...View More
I was traveling down i-91 S in the third of four lanes. The car directly in front me, went to merge right into the fourth lane, but came swerving abruptly back into the third lane in front of me.

He was riding down a hill and could not stop hitting a side of a passing car, he fell off the bicycle and fractured his leg. Yesterday a policewoman came and said that the owner of the vehicle will be contacting me to discuss the damage to the car.

As a general premise, he should not have to pay anything under normal circumstances if the accident took place in the ordinary course of his employment.

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... View 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... View 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....View 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...View 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.
