    You should retain an attorney immediately. You should not talk with her insurance company. Let your lawyer communicate for you. They can be very tricky in what they will ask you to try to hurt you again by preventing you from making a claim. Don't let them do that to you. Get a lawyer. Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss.

    It sounds like someone "borrowed" your car. Took it without your permission. You certainly have a right to make a claim against them for damage caused to the car as a result of this. Of course the extent of the damage may dictate what is the best way to proceed (small claims court, hiring a lawtyyer, working it out directly with the person who had taken the care without your permission).

    Yes, you can sue. But there may be restrictions on what you can recover. Did you file a police report? I urge you to consult a lawyer to help determine what to do next.

    Yes. As a general rule, a driver needs to keep a safe clear distance. That distance needs to take into account speed, driving conditions, stopping distance. While the other cars may have contributed as well to causing the accident, a driver of a car will be held resopnsible for rear-ending a car in front of it, that has come to a stop due to traffic conditions.

    You should file a police report if you have not already done so. You should also notify your insurance company. And you should hire a lawyer. One challenge you may find is that hiring a lawyer may prove challenging if all you are seeking is property damage. But perhaps you there is enough damage to the car that it would warrant a lawyer getting involved.

    There are a number of things a lawyer will look at in evaluating whether the claim can prevail, and then one additional factor to determine if it is economically worthwhile for that lawyer to undertake representation. The factors include: 1 Duty of care - did the hospital owe a duty to provide proper care. 2 Breach of duty - did the hospital fail in providing the proper care 3 Factual causation (Direct Cause) - did that failure result in harm 4 Legal causation or remoteness - were any...

    You should have a lawyer review the police report and visit the scene if the accident with your son or at least review photos and a diagram of the scene with your son. Police reports are not always correct. If this happened in PA, NJ, or AZ then my office has someone who can review this with you. Michael Monheit, Esq, 215-840-6573

    As a general rule, I do not think you have a basis for a claim. As the driver behind them, you have a duty to maintain a safe clear distance from cars in front of you.
