If I were to have an accident after legally being allowed to drive due to a seizure would I still be a fault if I were to kill a pedestrian or another driver? What if it was because of a seizure that slipped through even... Read more »
There are two different standards of fault in your scenario, criminal and civil. With civil (potentially triggering a lawsuit against you), your prior health history is basically irrelevant. If you cause an accident because a seizure causes you to drive in a careless manner, you are civilly at...Read more »

Do you happen to have uninsured motorist coverage? You could engage in a small claims matter depending upon the value of the claim. However depending upon the particular defendants even if you receive a judgment it may be very challenging to collect on that judgment.
The individual did not have bodily injury coverage and I understand the reason attorneys not willing to take the case because of this. However, I have medical bills and car loss value I would like to claim. I understand Florida law of not being able to garnish wages, apply liens to assets, and/or... Read more »

Once your child turns 18, you are not responsible in any way for his acts or omissions for use of vehicles (or anything else) that are not owned by you, not shared with you, and...Read more »

Since he hit you from behind, it probably doesn't matter whether he had his headlights on. And whether you saw him or not probably doesn't matter either. What does matter is that, if he had his headlights on he should have seen you and if he didn't that may have contributed to the accident. So...Read more »
