Rental insurance cause they're renting from a relative, I had no way to avoid the dog, is it worth going after the person to get my $501 deductible back I'm having to pay for my insurance to fix my car?
If it was fixed yes, she has a right to see the bill. If it wasn't fixed she has a right to see an estimate. If you were hurt you may have an uninsured motorist claim so contact a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults.
Both of my parents (aged 85 and 87) currently have active Texas licenses and auto insurance. Their physician tested and diagnosed them both with mild dementia Nov 5, 2019. They are both still able to dress, bathe, shop, etc. for themselves, just getting a little confused, weaker, repeating... Read more »
You are liable for negligence. Whether a jury will rule that you were negligent in continuing payments for car insurance and gas and not taking away the keys or disabling the car cannot be accurately predicted.
How can fight this?, County also tried to charge me leaving the scene but statue of limitations played for the county and could no longer attempt to charge me. Although because it had lingered about the ticket and accident I was taken in in another city of Castle Hills in San Antonio for felony... Read more »
You will most likely be required to hire a lawyer to help sort that out because several issues are involved. Is the SOL still in play with respect to the citation received in the mail? If the citation is from the same incident the SOL should also apply. You should consult with a lawyer, many give...Read more »
I bumped into an ATT company vehicle 6 months back. My grandfather’s name was on the vehicle and he cancelled the insurance without telling me, so I thought I was driving an insured vehicle. I received a bill in my name for nearly $2,500 a month after the accident and contacted ATT but never got... Read more »
i was given the right of way by the two immediate oncoming lanes. as i processed into the median and i started the turn into the median i was hit by a car travelling straight in the median. the other driver had no license. im being put at fault for failure to yield is that correct?
Depends on circumstances. They didn't come out of nowhere, but if you had begun your passage and they were going to enter the median and could see you they should have yielded to you. However if they were already there, you had to watch out for them.
I was pregnant and incarcerated in Tx on my way to a doctors appointment when the escorting officer wrecked. When the police came on the scene the officer had lied being one situation. The entire cause of the accident was put off on the elderly woman behind us. Which wasnt true. The officer... Read more »
Unfortunately the statute of limitations for negligence claims is 2 years. Claims against a Texas governmental entity also have special notice provisions. If you are past the two year time-frame, then it is likely that your claims would be barred.
They argued over whether she had permission to take it or not. Either way, we’re the vehicle owner. The car was totaled. Insurance paid but gap insurance wouldn’t pay because the girl didn’t have a license.
If you have insurance the insurance will take care of it. If not, saying you'll return and trying to get out of it may generate a call from the person to the authorities which is no problem if your visa is valid but if you have overstayed........

we need to get hold of the case file on a thirty year old out of court settlement on a wrongful death case. All I have is the name of the deceased. Could someone please point me in the right direction as to where I start? hank you.
That's going back quite a way. A Texas attorney is really the one who would know about navigation through the Texas court system in terms of retrieving records. But your question remains open for a month. As a general practice in most unified court systems, one could check if any records come up...Read more »

This question is marked TEXAS so my answer below is based on Texas law. It appears that the question was asked in Georgia... if the alleged crime happened in Georgia then stop reading now because nothing below will help you.

on the right front fender (I was not a the scene,found it like that). I got fired and now he wants to withhold my commission from a two car sales last week? If this is legal, how can I make sure he is not overcharging for the repair and adding extras to the damage?
I am very disappointed in the legal system, at this time. I know there are some good attorneys out there, but I only find the bad ones. Three generations of my family were badly injured in an accident over 4 years ago, and several lawyers have tossed the case around, then handed it back to us. We... Read more »
