    This would be a tough case. Do you know what hit you? who hit you or threw the object at you? Do you have any ongoing injuries? Even if you know these answers, it would be very hard to hold someone responsible. If you know who did it, you could sue that person personally. Other than that, suing the organizers of the event would be near impossible. Good luck.

    The fact that you were bitten by their dog makes you eligible for compensation, not them! Sounds like your dog was protecting himself and bit the other dog. I do not see how you are on the hook for their vet bills. I am not sure what state you are in, but in Michigan, you may have a case against their homeowners insurance for your medical bills, scarring, pain, etc. Good luck! Michael Morse

    You are entitled to seek recovery for the total amount of the property damage. When a car is parked it is considered "property", and therefore, rather than the $500.00 mini-tort maximum, you can bring a claim in small claims court for your damages, with the maximum allowable recovery of $3,000.00. Often a letter letting the manager and the business know that you are consulting an attorney is enough to prompt them to forward the letter to their insurance carrier. If that fails, this would most...

    If your friend has collision coverage on his car, then his own company pays for all damages to that car, even if the accident was entirely your fault. If he is required to pay a deductible, he can ask your auto insurance company for reimbursement up to $500.00. If your friend has no collision coverage, the most he can collect from you is still a maximum of $500.00. In Michigan, if you have no insurance, or if your friend's car was reasonably parked at the time of the accident, he can file a...

    In Michigan, if you owned the vehicle and were driving it without the required no-fault insurance, you are out of luck to sue for pain and suffering as well as getting any economic benefits.

  6. Can I file a claim if accident happened outside the license restriction parameters?

    You can try and file a claim with your insurance company. This is not something that they should be concerned with. You may have violated your probation by driving without it in your new vehicle. I would contact a criminal attorney to ask that question.

    Unfortunately, in Michigan if you are the owner and operator of an uninsured motor vehicle you are unable to pursue a claim for pain and suffering even if you were not at fault and sustained serious injuries. The fact that you had no insurance also precludes you from making a claim for No Fault benefits, which would normally entitle you to collect lost wages , payment of medical bills, payment for assistance with chores in your home while you are disabled, attendant care and medical mileage...

  8. Should I take a buy out for lifetime medical entitlement due from an auto accident?

    Absolutely not until an experienced No Fault attorney has thoroughly reviewed your PIP claim. All too often, accident victims accept buy outs or sign releases waiving all future medical benefits, ultimately to their great detriment. In Michigan, payment of medical bills,medical treatment and attendant care are lifetime benefits when the care or treatment is reasonable, necessary and related to the accident.

    You do not provide enough information to help give you a good answer. You say that you do not want to sue her or the insurance company. You may not have a choice. If you fell on someone else's property, due to the negligence of someone other than yourself, you may be entitled to have your medical bills paid for and for money for pain and suffering. Feel free to call me at 800-281-0606 so I can have some more details. Thank you. Michael Morse

    Michigan is a No-fault state and therefore your insurance company is responsible for the damage to your vehicle. If you chose not to get collision coverage you are out of luck except for the $500 mini-tort. If the other driver did not have insurance, then you can sue that person for the full amount. Hope that answers your question.
