The car was parked extremely close to mine, the parking lot was also not legally a parking lot (cars had just pulled to park) I’m aware we are both a fault (because it’s not actually a lot nor a parking spot) I also stayed and exchanged information with the driver.
An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, the fact that a car is illegally parked doesn't usually result in negating its owner's property damage rights. An attorney could need additional details here, but it's possible both...Read more »

I was on the freeway when it happened I turned my blinker on to get in the left lane when I looked nobody was there so I started to get over next thing I know a car came up behind me and side...

It sounds like you were at fault in the accident. When you change lanes it is on you to be sure no one is currently occupying that lane and this sounds like a classic blind spot mistake. As for the marijuana allegations and the sobriety testing, if you are charged with a drug offense or a DUI, you...Read more »

To a certain extent it depends on the agreement you had with the company. If the crash was due to your actions you may be liable, at least to some extent. You may want to contact your insurance company. Depending on the policy, they will usually pay for the damages. For a definitive answer I...Read more »

It sounds like a defensible case. For a definitive answer you're going to need to sit down with an attorney to review the facts in detail and figure out the best game plan. Sometimes these issues continue on if the other driver tries to sue you civilly.
The husband was the person hit by the vehicle and did not want to call police and said he was fine but his wife insisted and had the police and ambulance show up. He refused medical treatment and the ambulance left without him. Can they make an insurance claim on my insurance?
Yes they can. Injuries from an auto accident sometimes become more obvious only a few days after the incident. It's not uncommon for someone to think they are fine and refuse treatment initially only to go to a doctor a day or two later. If they file a claim, your auto insurance will...Read more »
Moving does not change what Court has jurisdiction. The location of the incident determines jurisdiction along with other factors such as damages. Here is a link to a brief overview from the Ohio State Bar Association....Read more »

In 2016, I was ticketed with a “failure to yield; left turn” ticket for an accident I believed I was innocent of. I couldn’t afford to fight it, so decided to wait it out. 2018, I got rear ended and charged w driving under suspension from failure to pay. 2020, personal circumstances strong... Read more »
I was rear ended at a stop light. At the time of the accident, we exchanged information. She told her insurance company I negligently operated my car and it was my fault.

If you reached out to Ohio...Read more »

Likely, you should give your insurance company a call and they'll get ahold of his insurance and sort out your property damage claim. If you end up with a bodily injury claim, then a good Plaintiff's attorney will be able to help you out.
