Hello, I was involved in an accident in Minnesota, where the responding officer cited the accident as "No-Fault." I was going straight East-Bound, the other party was going West-Bound, turning South-Bound at an intersection. The light turned Yellow and we both collided with front end damages. The... Read more »
Contact a member of the Minn Assn for Justice for the county where it happened. You had the right of way. They should have waited for you. If you have collision run yours through your insurance. If you get sued notify your insurance immediately and let them cover it. If there was a camera at the...Read more »
The cops arrived after the other cars mother (who wasn't there nor involved in the accident) called them. We were driving slow since it had snowed earlier, then we hit ice and slowly slid into a car stopped at a stoplight. Tried honking to warn them but they panicked and didn't move. The cops...

You can try it. The point is you weren't able to stop, so some judges will take the position you should not have been driving at all if you couldn't stop. Now, if you had been able to stop all the way there and then suddenly there was a part you couldn't seem to stop on, a judge may say that you...Read more »
I was heading home on a county road. The truck ahead of me went around a large combine. I checked and decided to pass as well. When i got by the combine, I looked in the rear view mirror and then looked forward. The guy that had passed in front of me had practically stopped to negotiate his turn... Read more »
I obviously let my neighbor know immediately and she is devastated. I am wondering if we should call the cops or if there is nothing they could/would do about it. I have seen the car before and know they live in the area. Is this a crime? Should I get the car's license plate number? Or is there... Read more »
If you wish to discuss your case with an attorney, you could simply ask. However, in many firms, until a case is developed to the point of being prepared for depositions and other pre-trial activities, it is often paralegals who are most familiar with the file. Paralegals gather much of the initial...Read more »
A suggestion would be to inform the office respectfully that you’d like to speak directly to the attorney about a particular matter. Sure accommodations could be made. Every firm handles this differently. Good luck to you.
I wasnt at fault the police report says the other peoples insurance said they determined that we were both at fault. And wont pay. So I took the driver to small claims court and won my claim. Now does the insurance company pay the settlement I was awarded or what
I was driving very slowly but there was no stopping, the car kept sliding on slusshy snow and hit the pole holding the street names. The pole tilted a bit. Not realizing how much damage had happened to my car, I drove the one block to my house. Now, I can see the extent of the damage and it is... Read more »
You could call and check with police. Whether they want to respond directly may depend on the amount of damage to the sign pole. You may want to check with your insurance company to see if you have coverage, and whether they need a police report. They might not other than a hit & run hitting you....Read more »
Not clear what you received a ticket for, if it is a no point may as well pay it, if it's a point violation or DUI you need to get with an attorney who handles tickets in the Court that will hear the case--plead not guilty, drop off the not guilty plea with any payment, get with an attorney. Small...Read more »
The owner of a body shop told me the bed possibly could come loose and fall off. Could I be liable: If I were to sell the truck, after telling the buyer that the bed may be unsafe and therefore should be replaced - but the buyer never replaces it and the bed falls off several months later, causing...

You didn't complete writing your question. The officer is not required to read you your rights unless he/she is going to engage in custodial interrogation. Simply issuing you a ticket or taking you to the station does not require a reading of the Miranda rights. I don't know what you are...Read more »
Yes, if he does not have an auto and therefore no insurance of his own, some auto policy and if none then a state Assigned Claims for autos would provide No-Fault Auto coverage. This is a bit complicated and you should contact an atty to help you.
Sounds like he is but I might be missing something. Like it was dark and your lights were out.If you were hurt, contact a member of the Mn Assn for Justice--they give free consults. Do not give recorded statements until then.
I work in the traffic department as a traffic controller as they are no signals i have to stand in the middle of the street and guide ways to the cars. Once i was doing my job a car on purpose came fast as if he was about to hit me, neither he was going straight or left he was coming were i was... Read more »
Did you report him to the police? Seems it violates several code sections. Can you sue him? Technically yes, but as that type of case is frowned on by the Courts I doubt it. If you have ptsd then see about having it documented.
