My dad was on his tractor and pulled out into the street at the same time that our neighbor came down the road in his truck. The neighbor moved to avoid the tractor and side swiped my parent's mailbox. Crash report states no damage. My parents paid the neighbors $500 deductible. Now a year... Read more »

Doesn't sound like it. Criminal charges could result if alcohol or drugs were involved, or you failed to stop and report, or you somehow intentionally or recklessly did this. None of that appears to be the case here.
My vehicle was unsafe to drive but, I was able to move it off the road. I called for a ride and when they showed up I left. The other party stated that they were okay and we were there for an hour already. Court date is coming in the mail. Should I hire an attorney. This is the first accident... Read more »
Leaving the scene of an accident is a 6 point violation, which is as big as they get. It is also a criminal offense that could conceivably put you in jail for three months, although that is not likely. My point is, it's a serious charge, and you should get an attorney who regularly practices...Read more »
I didn't answer the door. Called this morning and the cops said I hit and run a car, on my street. Said that they were getting off their shift and would be over at ten tonight to give me a ticket and I can get me car Monday from impound.
Sounds like you're going to get a ticket for leaving the scene of a property damage accident. That's a criminal misdemeanor, that carries up to ninety days in jail. Find an attorney in your area who practices primarily traffic and drunk driving defense. Although this presumably...Read more »
If you were hurt contact a member of the Michigan Assn for Justice--they give free consults. However If it's a company, chances are they have insurance. If police weren't involved, write the company a note to the risk manager to get their insurance information.
it's unlikely that a car dealer will sell to you alone, without an adult, because minors may void a contract until their 18th birthday. But, if they do, the dealer will apply for the plate for you. You are not required to be a licensed driver to purchase a car, but you have to be licensed...Read more »
Per doc instructions, I am to be off work for no less than 25 days and I am self employed. I have pip ins coverage. Do I need an attorney to help or should I rely on my own insurance company to take care of me
I was in a car accident a few years back, at the time I did not have insurance. I was unaware that I was without insurance, I was in school and my mom had agreed to make those payments for me. The car was parked in the left lane with no hazards on so coming down the hill it seemed like it was... Read more »
The time to try to reopen it would've been when you realized you hadn't gotten it in. If it's not been too long you could try to reopen it but that would mean hiring an attorney and they'd want up front money. I f you were injured in the wreck and it's medically...Read more »
I would add to the answer I gave on the other version of this (it is repeated) that the best and simplest if you can afford it is once you have the consultation, if you think the attorney is good then find out what their fee is and make arrangements to pay them so if someone asks you something you...Read more »
Anyone can blame anyone for anything--whether it sticks or not is a different thing. Best preparation is preparation--so the "someone" needs to contact an attorney who handles criminal cases in the county where this happened.
That way the someone will know what if anything they...Read more »
My daughter was rear ended, I spoke to the Police officer over the phone as I was at work and told him I was going to call in a tow truck he then suggested I let him do it it would be quicker. I never received a price, the vehicle was towed and I was charged $350 for a tow of less than 10 miles. I... Read more »
First, I assume you have daughter's vehicle. If not get it back --otherwise you will be charged storage as well. If you bailed it out, great. Send a copy of the receipt to the department that regulates tow operators. If you get a namby pamby response notify your state rep and senators that...Read more »
i suddenly started having trouble hearing after the rear end car accident. I was a passenger in the back seat. i was asleep when the first vehicle hit us. Then sat forward a little looking out the opposite back door window. When we were hit again and my head and ear and wrist hit the drivers seat... Read more »
Yes. You need to talk to a member of the Mich. Assn for Justice in the county where the wreck happened--they give free consults. You can have the claim, it's not a slam dunk but it's there and it's significant. But you need to speak with an attorney--this isn't amateur hour...Read more »
