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 »
Houston has many excellent and honest attorneys, and I've worked with some of them on maritime and other cases. Your fundamental problem may not be finding an honest attorney - there is no shortage of fine attorneys in Houston. You mention going through several attorneys in a case that appears to...Read more »
2years ago, March 2017, I was trying to move my things so a friend of mine who stayed in same apartment approached me with a plan to help me out with cash to rent a truck to move and will also run into his car so he can claim insurance money from the truck company and give me part of it. I ran into... 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.
I was rear ended and went through the liable parties insurance. After a few weeks, he was found liable and I obtained the incident report which corroborates my story as well as supports my statement that he was, "inattentive." I was texted by the liable party stating that he has closed the claim... Read more »
You can still submit your damages to his or her insurance company for direct payment. There may be supplemental repairs to your vehicle so it is best to let the insurance company deal with it. Sometimes, these repairs are really costly and some damages are not seen until they begin repairing it....Read more »

I have no assets, liability is not an issue, there were no serious injuries, so I’m a little confused as to why they choose to continue on with this. I’ve said since day one, the accident was my fault, she was not seriously injured, yet she chooses to get a lawyer and go on with this nonsense,... Read more »
Sadly, it’s often your insurance company that may not be providing the plaintiff with full disclosure that indeed the amount being offered is the policy limit. Also, for the policy limits to be offered there were probably some serious injury there. Communicating with your insurance company’s...Read more »
