Depends on a lot of things--did you leave the keys lying around? Had he taken the car at any time before? It should be covered by your insurance, so turn it over to them. If you didn't reprort it as stolen, it's not quite theft.
Ordinarily, if an insurer wants to total a car, the only question is if you agree with the value they give you. Once they total the car, they get the certificate of title and the car is theirs. You can try to negotiate with them to take less money and keep the car. However, there likely will not...Read more »

You can sue the driver who hit you, but it is probable that any lawyer who would take the case will charge you on an hourly basis, which will cost several thousand dollars. Further, if you win against the other driver, if he has no insurance, he is...Read more »
My mom passed away from a car accident while on her way to a job interview with amazon. They cancelled the interview but failed to inform her. She would have never been in the car if they would have called. Should they be held responsible?
I know that they run many risk in doing so and have tried to talk them out of doing this. I am just concerned that since they live with me and have nothing but their car in their name that if there was an accident and heaven forbid someone was injured, could legal action be taken against me since...

If you were a properly authorized driver for a car you did not own, the insurance should follow the car and pay the other person’s damages, irrespective of whether you were or were not a named insured. If the owner has collision coverage, that should cover the owner’s damages. If not, that is...Read more »
All he got were 4 violations, the worst of which was Careless Driving. He has a prior DUI from 2013, but police said there was no indication of that this time. There was no blood drawn.

If that person was at fault? Or not? You aren't being clear.
If your vehicle was at fault, then your vehicle's insurance will pay for the driver's mistake. If the person was not authorized to drive that vehicle, the insurance may either a) not pay or b)pay under a "reservation of rights."...Read more »

I was in the right land did have a stop sign, which I was completely stopped at and I had my turn signal on to go left.

I think so. Usually if you do fight it, either the officer or the magisterial district judge will voluntarily reduce the charge to something that carries no points -- and that's a good thing. Just let them know that is what your goal is: no points.
The other driver is now harassing me and demanding I give her money out of my own pocket to pay for the damage done to her car.
