I was in a no injury , car accident yesterday. I was cited and considered at fault. They said I ran a red light. Which I did not I even said the light was yellow as I was moving through an intersection. A truck in the left turn lane hit me as I was going straight. My car is most likely a total loss...

I'm glad you were not injured. But from the standpoint of liability, the citation and your statement that the light was yellow place you in a difficult position. If it's possible to retrieve video imagery of the accident that might support your position, that's a possibility to explore. But four...Read more »
I'm not sure what private property has to do with cameras. You caused destruction of property. The police may investigate that. If they find you are driving under suspension with no insurance, likewise. You are looking at a looooooooooooooong suspension, as the Judge may figure the first one didn't...Read more »
You should contact a member of the Assn for Justice of the state where it happened, get the names of their members in the county where it happened, they give free consults. Get a copy of the police report. Yes, it is enough to go by but it's good to have the complete picture.
It's not clear but I'm assuming you are speaking of medical benefits or liability?
Each state has different laws regarding combining policy benefits or "stacking." Most policies have "household exclusion" rules to prohibit this though some states--Pennsylvania for instance--has done away...Read more »
Initially it was deemed repairable and then was marked as a total loss. Fine Line is basically holding my car hostage asking for an exorbitant amount for work they were not even authorized to do. The insurance company wants me to pay the difference between what they feel is reasonable and what Fine... Read more »
If fine line did it without authorization it should be on them. Your position should be that the insurance company should pay and then go after fine line. File a complaint with the insurance commissioner. Talk to your state rep.
If you co-sign a loan, you’re in the hook for the loan, not any accidents he may get into with the car he buys with the loan proceeds. If the car is titled to you, you need to make sure there is insurance on the car. If it’s titled to him, that’s his problem. If you are driving the car when...Read more »
A dump truck was traveling east when the left front tire failed (blow-out or unknown cause, possibly road hazard). The truck ran into the highway median, hit the Armco-style metal barrier which shredded the tire and totally destroyed the truck. Part of the barrier (a wooden post) was projected into... Read more »
My dog ran away late New Year's Eve. I posted about it on Facebook, searching for her. I was contacted 3 days later via text by a woman who claims she may have hit her, now a week later, she's coming after me to pay for the deductible, can I fight this?

You should report her claim to your homeowners insurance. Did she pay the vet bill? Generally,you are responsible in most states for your animal's actions. If you let them loose, then you may be responsible.
Typically, a lawsuit is filed where the defendant (1) resides; (2) has a principal place of business; (3) conducted activity giving rise to the claim; or (4) where all or part of the claim took place (i.e. where the accident took place). However, a lawsuit can be filed where a plaintiff resides, IF...Read more »
My dog snuck out of the house and ran towards a car that was going down the street pretty fast. The car slowed down slightly as my dog ran towards it and she bounced off of their tire. The car never stopped and sped off down the road as I tried to flag them down. My dog went into shock, but we... Read more »

I don’t practice in Ohio but your question remains open for four weeks. If you were represented by an attorney, it could be worthwhile to ask them to go over the terms of your release and other closing documents for the case.

If you were not at fault you may be able to reopen the case if you can show they never served you properly. If you were hurt contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice for the county where it happened.
The law says you have to maintain an assured clear distance ahead of your vehicle so that you can stop in case the driver(s) in front of you do. It does not say you cannot stop suddenly. Unless you could show that the first car pulled out in front of traffic when it wasn't clear, the liability is...Read more »
