They were not given any citations from officers. The damages to our car est. 13,050. Our uninsured motorist policy has... Read more »
If your insurance does not cover the whole amount of damages you'll have to file a lawsuit against the driver/parents to try and recover a judgment for damages. But you can't force the police to issue citations.
My grandmother owned life insurance policies on my grandpa and myself. We want to cash them out because they are horrible policies. They were supposed to transfer ownership to my grandpa but never did after we filled out the paperwork. Now they are saying we need all of my grandmother's heirs... Read more »
You did not state this, but it sounds like your grandmother has passed and there are things still in her name, such as these life insurance policies. You should contact a probate attorney to help you with getting those assets retitled. The type of process that will be needed will depend on more...Read more »

I got a ticket for no license and no insurance I did have a 28 year old in the car with me, he told me he didn’t see any reason to arrest me since I was honest and... Read more »
If the accident was the other driver's fault then the fact you didn't have a license is likely not admissible on fault. Who is fault is determined by what happened in the accident. As to the ticket- It is good that you now have your learner's permit and insurance. The fact that...Read more »

This is something a Tennessee attorney could answer best because insurance is generally governed by state law. But your post remains open for three weeks. As a general matter, it's difficult to say without seeing all the paperwork, particularly the inclusion of provisions outlining the nature...Read more »
The insurance company told me "In Tennessee the measure of damages is either repair costs OR the difference in market value immediately before the accident and that immediately after the accident. It is not both. Since you have elected to receive the cost of repairs, then there can be no... Read more »
You must check with a Tennessee attorney as to the statutory authority you describe. However, your question remains open for five weeks. That concept is not exclusive to Tennessee. It is an accepted practice of property damage claims processing virtually nationwide. The carrier pays the collision...Read more »
The other driver's insurance is not required to advance or pay your medical bills at this point. Some adjustors will as a courtesy- but again not required to and often times not done- so don't take that as a reflection that the insurer is denying fault or that the insurer is taking some...Read more »
If I understand your question correctly, I think you misunderstand the difference between your LICENSE and the vehicle REGISTRATION. these two things are not the same. Your license is for you only- it is the authorization that you can legally drive a vehicle ( ANY vehicle, even one you don't...Read more »
The Insurance Company will usually notify the Lienholder of a Policy lapse. If the Policy is SR-22, then the Insurance Company will probably notify the Department of Safety and everybody else. Usually there is a short grace period.
He was ticketed for straddling lanes and improper lane change. I'm I responsible for getting my vehicle repaired as I'm being given the run around by his insurance company. I was also told I'd be responsible for 20% of a rental or cab fees.
This is why you need to contact a lawyer after a crash. This sounds like the usual insurance baloney where they try to say you are 10,20.30% at fault based on---well, it's an "accident" so it's no-one's fault (until they are trying to soak you for contribution).
parent had life insurance policy since 80"s and the agent agreed to pay the difference yearly because he wrote policy wrong. he is retired now and said he couldn't due it now. Can he be held accountable
I got pulled over in September of 2017 received a citation for no insurance I missed court date in November but I called the courthouse and told them I would pay my citation at the end of February or the beginning of March I paid the ticket of $239 here it is July 2018 and they suspended my license...

Paying the Citation (ticket) was an admission of guilt. You should have hired a competent attorney. Now you need another attorney to attempt to get the Department of Safety to allow you to drive in Tennessee.
Your question has nothing to do with real property. Besides the roof condition, you must read your Insurance Policy. That Contract will control your rights. In the mean time find another Carrier now. Non Insurance is a Default under your Deed of Trust. It is very doubtful that after you get...Read more »

I had a accident in 2016 on a wet road and at fault for sliding across the road into another vehicle. I had insurance at the time and wasn’t notified that I would be in a lawsuit for the car I hit. This lawsuit was sent 2 years later but filed in 2017 4 days from making the accident a year old.... Read more »
If you had car insurance at the time of the accident, contact your insurance company to let them know of the lawsuit. They should protect you pursuant to the policy, which would include an attorney. If you did not have valid car insurance, you are on your own but should consider contacting an...Read more »
