Q: I dont have a licenese and was driving and a car pulled out in front of me I was on a one way and going staright

I had right away and cop said they would have been at fault but because no license he said i was

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Sep 8, 2019

That is incorrect. It is a rebuttable presumption that bc you did not have your license, you are at fault. However, it can be rebutted by the fact that the car pulled in front of you, thus causing the accident. You are not at fault as you have rebutted the presumption.

Q: Got in car accident . was told my registration was cancelled . had insurance and stuff . what will judge do .

Will I go to jail , loose my license or just show them my insurance . Is there a way to do this without going to court

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Aug 6, 2019

Bc there was an accident, you’re going to have to go to court. If you had insurance at the time and you’ve corrected the registration, it probably all gets dismissed but you should hire a lawyer to ensure that’s how it goes.

Q: Anything I can do about a holder on my license for over 10 year's in Kentucky
John Robinson
John Robinson answered on Mar 30, 2019

If the holder is part of a civil proceeding (like an insurance company secured a judgment against you for damage caused while driving without insurance), a bankruptcy filing will likely restore your driving privileges. You are welcome to email me if you have more specific questions.

Another teen rear ended this 16 year old while she was driving illegal and he has had to pay for everything because he rear ended her. A settlement is pending thru insurance even though there was no injury. My point is she should not have been on the road at all. Shouldn't it be her fault?... Read more »

The intermediate license is a minor traffic offense. The person who rear ended the other person is at fault, license or no license, dui or no dui, because that is the direct and proximate cause of the accident.
