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 »

First, ask the website to take this down. You have hopefully mis written what is there. You need to speak to an attorney who handles criminal matters because while you have a defense to the civil claim, that defense has implications for other matters. Do not mention this in emails to friends (not...Read more »
Was there a crash? If not no problem. Even if there was, I don't see a problem under most scenarios. Rates only go up if the driver is at fault in causing the collision, if there was one. The question of fault has nothing to do with the license.
I was involved in a MVC on 5/9/19. It involved 5 vehicles with my vehicle being in the middle. The vehicle that caused the accident was a moving truck with a trailer. It took over a week before their insurance company would authorize me to get a rental. Because when the person that caused the... Read more »
They should pay for your towing bill as well. But, you could have determined the FMV of your vehicle and counteroffered the company and possibly been able to get some money in your pocket for a down payment. Good luck to you and we hope that you were not injured in the accident.

It's an abandoned vehicle and as long as he didn't have to break in he can get the license--it was a crash, he needs to do his investigation. Focus on the big issues--if you are at fault, focussing on whether the officer could have /should have gotten your license isn't a useful use of your time.
We believe my brother in law was murdered. Our local cops had him have done a horrible job and now haven't even tried to arrest the woman who at least fled the scene of the crime. They want to give the woman 2 to 10 yrs and if it murder it should be a higher charge and way longer sentence. She is... Read more »

I have been in two car accidents in my truck in the last 3 months. The first one was when I hit a deer going around 60 mph, and the second was a collision with another vehicle yesterday. It seems to me like the airbags should have deployed given the high impact and speed of both accidents.
If your injuries are very serious and the airbags should have deployed then it may be a claim worth pursuing. But, your injuries would have to be indistinguishable from those that would have occurred in the first place.
