    If you had automobile insurance that covers property damage to your own vehicle (e.g. first party collision coverage) then put in a claim with your insurance carrier. They will pay for the damages and, if possible, sue Penn Dot for the recovery of your deductible and its indemnity. A lawsuit against Penn Dot in these circumstances could be very troublesome. Initially, there are concerns of sovereign immunity, although there are some well recognized roadway exceptions. The bigger problem would...

    An owner of a vehicle can indeed be sued, even if they were not in the car at the time of the collision. There are a number of theories to attach liability to an owner in these circumstances. The two predominant forms of vicarious (i.e. owner) liability are: 1) Negligent Entrustment-meaning the owner negligently permitted an unqualified driver to operate the vehicle (e.g. unlicensed driver, uninsured vehicle, habitual offender, intoxicated, etc.) or 2) Respondeat Superior-meaning that the...

    Although the experience may have been distressing, it is not likely that you will be able to obtain emotional distress damages. If the hotel knew or should have known that this type of loss could occur and they failed to take any measures to prevent it (e.g. warning to customers, terminating a known offender, background checks, security quality control measures, etc .) then you might be able to recover any economic damages you sustained (i.e. money you lost through the ordeal). It is unlikely...

    Maybe. As the other attorneys have noted, contact your (or your daughter's) carrier. It is possible that your daughter is liable as the negligent driver, however, the fact that your daughter was performing a service for the owner (i.e. driving him or her) could raise some defenses.

    there are often a number of steps, beyond the agreement itself. a release is normally signed as is a praecipe to settle. the check could take 30 days from the completion of that last step (sometime longer this time of year as some carriers want to allocate the loss to the next fiscal calendar)

    As noted by attorney Coluccio, Pennsylvania has a two year statute of limitations meaning that you must file your lawsuit within two years after the accident. From the sound of it, your suit might be further barred by the limited tort election of your automobile insurance policy. Essentially, with the Limited Tort election, you give up the right to receive compensation for pain and suffering if you are injured in a car accident unless the injuries were serious.
