I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Please accept my condolences.
The answer to your question is just not that simple. First, where did the accident happen? If it happened in Florida, the owner of the at-fault vehicle is considered primarily responsible and can be sued as long as the...Read more »

You should ask this question in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Connecticut ›. As far as litigation in Florida small claims court is concerned, yes, he could sue you here, but chances are that he meant that he was threatening to sue you in Connecticut.

Depends on what you mean by "says". Also, I think you mean insurance company, not insurance agency. An agency is just the entity that sells the insurance. Regarding what the insurance company "says", nothing is 100% definite until there is a signed document setting forth the agreed-upon...Read more »

The first thing I will say is of course you need counsel and her attorney and why if you are seriously injured he did not obtain representation is contrary to your best interest. Do not try to play lawyer with the insurance company or insurance companies and the other parties. If you were seriously...Read more »

I do not practice in Florida/Virginia, but your question remains open for 4 weeks. As a starting point, you could contact the customer service department of the car rental company and ask them to explain the charges.
You question is unclear, but you seem to be asking if you can file a claim for damage to your vehicle, even if nobody was physically injured. If that's the question, the answer is of course you can, and the first step is to set up a claim with the other party's insurance (assuming they were at...Read more »

I was involved in a motorcycle accident where they were cited for being at fault. They have insurance, I do not. Is it possible for me to get a rental, as i have no vehicle, and the motorcycle is totaled?
Yes it is possible. Oftentimes, if liability is not an issue, the adjuster for the at-fault party may authorize a rental and pay it directly. However, if the vehicle is totaled, they may either not pay you for a rental, or could authorize a short rental term while they are negotiating with you or...Read more »
