Last night my daughter was driving home from work. It was 9:15 pm. A car drove along side her and waved. My daughter thought she knew the passenger and waved back with her left hand. At the same moment she hit a patch of ice and spun into the passenger side just before the door. The driver insisted... Read more »

If however, the victim was an adult, the statute of limitations is 3 years from the date of the accident or from the time s/he could...Read more »

I received a $200 check from the other party's insurance company from a fender bender. I was to get a notary for a signed document, the release of bodily harm. I went to the bank in which the check was drawn on and got it notarized. I then went to the post office and mailed it in their... 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.

If you refuse to disclose this information, the other driver's insurance company may well deny coverage. Therefore I suggest that you disclose the information. It may well be that they cannot get this information on their own (because of privacy laws requiring that the police report be excised).
It's unclear what you are asking. If you were issued a citation, you can hire a traffic ticket lawyer. If an injury claim is made against you, let your insurance handle it. If you were injured, talk to an injury lawyer.
Please Take Notice: I am not your lawyer unless we enter into an...Read more »
