An Ohio attorney could advise best on this, but your post remains open for four weeks. At this point, you have probably discussed the matter with your insurance people and have learned about these routes. Some of the recourses you might have are to treat the property loss as a first-party claim if...Read more »
My company has recently leased a new office space in a newly renovated building (including the parking lot). The parking lot has a utility pole with a guy wire that extends into a parking space. The parking spot doesn't have any warnings (e.g. the spacing being striped for no parking).... Read more »
Talk to the local building dept. whether it is a violation. If not, and if landlord or company will not pay for repairs, you could sue in small claims court. The court will determine if they have any liability for failing to post a warning sign. But if the wire was in plain sight, the court...Read more »
My boy friend was taking me home from the mall, we were just about to get on the highway when the car in front of us slammed on their breaks outta no where . we ALMOST hit them but my boyfriend made a sharp left turn so we didn’t . but today an officer came to his house and said the car that was...

Based on these facts alone, it's difficult to determine exactly what happened, in terms of whether your boyfriend's actions were responsible for the accident, whether the other vehicle's damage claim is valid, etc. You could try to arrange a brief consult with an Ohio accident attorney to determine...Read more »
He is trying to lie and say I was in left lane then moved to right. But he was sited for it so his insurance has to pay for my car right? They told me at his insurance company that it is waiting on manger to approve liability. Will I get my car taken care of?
I've seen insurance companies try to claim it was "arguable" or offer only 70 or 80 per cent liability. You could use your own collision if you have it and let them deal with it. If you were injured contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice--they give free consults.
This is something a criminal defense attorney would know. You could repost the question in the Criminal Law section. Car accident attorneys (the category where you have it posted) usually only deal with the civil aspects of collisions, such as personal injury and property damage claims. They aren't...Read more »
I hope your daughter is doing OK. As long as it was determined that the other driver was liable for the accident, it should cover the vehicle. The insurance may try to fight you on this due to her being an unlicensed driver, but as long as that did not cause the collision, it should be...Read more »
If there was a tree down from someone's yard that fell in the street all the way across the road from ditch to ditch that caused us to have a bad accident. Can you go after the home owners insurance. There was no time to stop so we hit it at the rate of speed that the road allows.
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 »
