If you were arrested your property should have been returned to you when you were released. If it was not returned you need to file the appropriate complaint forms with the jail. You also need to hire an attorney.

The car was parked in driveway on private property. Police came with no warning and impounded the car. Was not in any way a nuiscance or derelict as the city of Oklahoma is now claiming.

Q: My daughter was struck from behind & offending drivers ins. not wntng to pay med bills w/out a signed release

Howard Berkson answered on Nov 9, 2013

Ordinarily an insurer will want to make a single payment in settlement of the entire matter. There is not enough information here to determine if the settlement attempt is proper or if the settlement amount is in your daughter's best interest. You should consult with an attorney.
