  • If I hit someone and they only ask for my email and phone number, but not my auto/insurance information can they sue me?

    If I hit someone and they only ask for my email and phone number, but not my auto/insurance information can they sue me?

    Daniel’s Answer

    Yes, they certainly can, regardless of what information was exchanged at the scene. If they have enough information to identify you, there is nothing to prevent them from filing a case against you if they were injured or suffered property damage.

    Every state has a different body of law governing suits against teachers and schools (assuming this is a public school). Federal law may also apply. You should contact a top quality Texas lawyer with experience in these cases to get the best advice possible.

    The ability to recover damages is very doubtful in this situation. You may be able to "win a lawsuit" but recovering any actual money is quite unlikely. Insurance coverage normanlly provides the fund of money from which recoveries are made in lawsuits. It is doubtful that any insurance policy would cover the claims you would likely make.

    There is no reason for you to be worried. It sounds as if you were not injured in the accident, which is fortunate. If you were in fact injured, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney right away. If not, you should simply report the accidnet to your insurance company. They will be able to sort out which insurance company - yours of the company for the car you were driving - has to provide coverage for this accident. You do not have to hire an attorney on your own to defend a claim against you. That is the obligation of the insurance company. Don't wait any longer to report the accident to the insurance company.
    Good luck.

    Daniel’s Answer

    You may well have a valid claim against the hotel. The issues are how, why and when the bed frame became "out of place", and the severity of your injuries. However, it is a good idea for you to speak with an attorney with experience suing hotels right away so that any evidence that can and shouold be preserved is properly preserved.

    I hear an awful lot of storied just like this involving rental properties in the mountains,a t the shore, etc. It's the responsibility of both the property owner and the rental company to ensure taht the property is reasonably safe for the guests. Evidently, they did not do that in this case.
    Whether you need an attorney will depend on how your wife's injuried develop or resolve over time, and how the owner and/or agent respond to your concerns. Preserve any and all evidence you have access to. If you believe your wife will miss significant time from work, require extensive medical care or otherwise incur significant economic losses, you should contact an experience attorny right away just to be safe.

    Daniel’s Answer

    If the insurance company will not pay for the reapir of your car as a property damage claim, you may have no alternative but to hire an attorney to file a property damage claim for you. I do not handle property damage cases, but there are manya ttorneys in NJ who do.

    Daniel’s Answer

    I would need a lot of additional information before I could tell you whether you have a case. If you were deprived of nedded medications and suffered an injury as a result, you may have a case, but I cannot make that determination based soley on the information contained in your question.

  • Is it possible to sue a landscaping company who works on the side of the freeway who left debri on the offramp causing my crash

    Did not file police report, bike was totalled and Suffered many injuries on my body. Also i have the piping which made me crash, the bike and helmet, and filed it with my insurance.

    Daniel’s Answer

    The answer to your question is a resounding "yes". A landscape company working adjacent to a highway may be legally responsible for any injuries resulting from dangerous conditions their work causes.
    The key to the case will be to prove that the contractor actually caused the debris to be on the roadway. A quick site visit by an experienced lawyer is probably a good idea.

    Daniel’s Answer

    How you handle the matter will depend upon whether your husband or daughter were injuerd. If either of them were injured, you should contact an attorney experienced in products liability and/or food contamination cases.
    If ther were no injuries, you may want to contact the manufacturer of the gum and the store where the gum was purchased, and notify them of what happened. This may cause a recall of the product and prevent future injuries.
