    The fact that you were driving on a suspended license when you were involved in an accident is the only relevant fact that the court is likely to look at. The fact that you were able to get your license reinstated is not relevant because you did not get it reinstated and therefore the effect on what the court is likely to do is the same. The judge could infer from your conduct that you were driving the whole time your license was suspened since you did not try to get it reinstated as soon as...

    In illinois all drivers have a duty to maintain control of their vehicles and to keep a proper lookout. If a car stops suddenly, generally the rearending vehicle is at fault. That applies to each vehicle in a chain reaction. In other words the 2nd vehicle will be resposible to the 1st vehicle; the 3rd vehicle will be responsible to the 2nd vehicle ( and possibly the 1st vehicle as well if their impact caused more damage to the 1st vehicle or its occupants). Whether someone was injured...

    First of all, these types of cases have a time limit which is called a statute od limitations. That is the time in which you have to file a claim or you may be barred from any further right to pursue the matter. Those time frames differ from state to state and depends on the type of case it is. Therefore you should try to find an attorney as soon as possible to help you with this. Second, it does not surprise me that McDonalds has not made an effort to resolve this case with you. That does...

    Your question is confusing and does not provide enough information. Did you cancel the insurance on the car after you sold it to your daughter, if no then your policy should still have been in effect. If yes, then you should have made sure she had insurance before giving her control of the vehicle. In most jurisdictions, it is illegal for an owner to allow their vehicle to be driven without insurance. In order for them to make you responsible they wouild have to file a claim against you or...

    Your son is responsible for the damages he caused but unless there is some statute where you live that makes a parent liable for this kind of conduct, then you should not be at fault. You did do anything to cause the crash. Depending on your child's and the state that you live in, there may be some affect on any criminal charges that may be brought against your son. The fact that the keys were left in the car has nothing to do with the disposition of this case as you described it. It may...
