I was in an accident on 8/8/19 but I wasn't injured. The FR 10 shows the other party for being at fault. On the TR 310 form the other party admits to making a right turn on red while I had the left green protected area. On 8/15/19 I write the owner of the vehicle. I explained to the other party...

I was in an accident as shown on the FR 10 form due to the at fault party making a right turn on red while I had the left protected green arrow. Since my insurance claim was denied I just decided to sue the at fault driver for the damages on my vehicle. Once I win in court, what is my next step as... Read more »
I had the left protected green arrow. As I'm entering the intersection and almost to the median I see a vehicle doing a right turn on red. Rather than her turning into the right lane, as I thought she's supposed to do, she begins to go into the center lane. She's moving slowly. (I don't know if she... Read more »
A claim denied isn't a legal finding. You need to see if there is video of the intersection covering the time involved.Do this ASAP as they aren't kept around for a long time as it eats up storage. A lot depends on who was where when. However South Carolina is, I believe, a comparative negligence...Read more »

If you have collision on the policy, then go through your own and let them hassle it out. You want to get a copy of the police report. If necessary, sue them in court /small claims (depending on damage).
that was backing up. An officer came and cited me as the contributer to the accident. The driver that hit me did not get cited. I have injuries, can I file a claim against his insurance for pain and suffering and loss of some wages? Workers comp is involved as well
I was in an accident on 8/8. The other party's insurance company finally contacted me on 8/20. The insurance company told me they would be keeping in contact with me to go through the claims process.

I'm glad you were not injured in this accident. Yes, there are attorneys who handle property damages only. But they are generally not as prevalent as the ones who handle auto injury claims.

Your insurance. If you had uninsured motorist insurance on your vehicle that may cover you though I doubt it. Why not run that by Attorney Carl Jacobson in Charleston. He'll give you a free consult. Tell him I suggested you call.
I was in an accident on Thursday, August 8, at approximately 3:12PM. The insurance company listed on the FR-10 form is an insurance company that the owner hasn't had insurance with since 2018. The owner listed on the FR-10 form is not the real owner of the vehicle. I know that to be true due to the... Read more »
From what you've said, I don't see why not. However if the case is as you have stated, have you told the police so that they may investigate? If the person in fact has no insurance, in many states their license can be suspended if they refuse to pay.

It was 1a.m, I was sleepy, my right headlight was out, I dozed off for a second too long and hit someone’s mailbox..

It won't enhance the penalties, assuming that having a distracting light isn't a violation of SC vehicle codes. However, if you are in a wreck and cause the wreck someone will make reference to it if they see it. It's like an aggressive bumper sticker--not illegal, won't change the fine or not, but...Read more »
Plaintiff attorneys often ask for more than policy limits even when we know the case may not be worth that much. So that does not automatically mean the case is worth that much. If the injured party has under-insurance coverage that would be next in line. For them to get money from you...Read more »
Your auto insurance "follows the car" so as long as he was using your car with your permission, your insurance will pay for any claims that might be made against your policy by anyone alleging damages. The fact that he did not have a driver's license is a separate issue that he will have to handle...Read more »
