I believe that the LLC may be or may not be liable for injuries caused by its uninsured vehicle driven by the owner of the LLC in Wisconsin. First, whether the vehicle is insured has nothing to do with the liability question. Rather, liability for the accident and accompanying injuries is a...Read more »

I am not sure what kind of lawyer I need but I was in a car accident where I did hit a car and I was not insured now progressive is suing me. I am a low income mother of 3 and i need help to make sure I am not bullied in court or getting taken advantage of.
If I assume that you are being sued in Small Claims Court for an amount of damage that does not exceed $10,000.00, I would recommend you speak with and or retain someone who practices in Small Claims Court. Having said that, you may also wish to consult with a Bankruptcy lawyer but that will depend...Read more »

She is suing or can sue for damage to her vehicle. I don't know whether her alleged lying about insurance led you to take the vehicle such that you relied upon representations it was an insured vehicle. That notwithstanding, I don't see the relationship between her lying about insurance...Read more »

Nonetheless, you may want to go to the Police Department near you and report the accident so that there is an official record. If you have photographs and names of witnesses...Read more »

I was in a car accident with a bus on an unplowed roadway and I was given a ticket for driving too fast for conditions. I was going well under the limit, but was unable to stop safely because of the poor road conditions.
The law would tend to say you should have anticipated and 1)driven even slower 2) not driven. You should fight the ticket, because you will argue that you were driving way slowly and at that particular location not slowly enough.
Second reason is that a government is given reasonable time...Read more »
both. The driver is primarily liable.If the person assuming ownership has no insurance, then the owner's insurance would be primary. The owner can go after the other person for "contribution." If it's you, then contact your insurance, put them on notice.
You would have to ask a Cuban lawyer that, but being a socialist state I wouldn't hold my breath. However if the driver was a fellow American, you may sue that driver in the state and county where they live.
A final possibility exists. If the driver has no insurance, and if you can...Read more »
