    You may make a claim against the uninsured motorist carrier for the vehicle in which you were a passenger. You may also make a claim on your own uninsured motorist coverage, if you have it. You are entitled to compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering, and you are also entitled to be reimbursed for any personal property damage you suffered, i.e. your computer. You have to be able to prove that the computer was yours. It helps a great deal if you still have some proof of...

    I think you would be best served to contact an attorney to discuss your situation further. It is very difficult to give you a clear answer without having more information.

    In Texas, you must have a driver's license to legally operate a motor vehicle. Many insurers will write in a blanket exclusion into their auto policies that exclude coverage for any non-licensed driver. You should always cooperate with your insurance company, whether it is your own or the vehicle's in which you were driving. If you do not contact your parents insurance company and cooperate with them in investigating the cause of the wreck, you risk invalidating your parents' coverage, which...

    Your girlfriend should file a claim on her policy, preferably in the uninsured motorist area of coverage. If she does not have that type of coverage, she can file a claim under her collision coverage. If she does not have uninsured motorist or collision, then unfortunately there is no other alternative from the insurance perspective. She may, however, bring a claim against the owner of the vehicle, but it will be very difficult to recover since the witness could not identify the driver and...

    Most policies have a limit on the time you can keep a rental car. If it is the at-fault driver's insurance who is covering the damage, they will only pay for the rental for the period of time they determine it will take to repair your vehicle. You should talk to the body shop about reimbursing you for your out-of-pocket expenses if the delay is caused by them.

    Unfortunately, many Texas drivers are uninsured. The silver lining, though, is that Texas law requires all auto insurance companies to offer uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage to all insured drivers. That means that you may have coverage on your own policy that covers your property damage and injury claims caused by the unlicensed, under-aged, uninsured driver. If you have not signed a written rejection form, you have the coverage. Check with your insurance company immediately...

    That is a very difficult question to answer. Anytime a case goes into the litigation process, the time it takes to resolve depends on a variety of factors, including length of time needed to conduct pre-trial discovery, the Court's trial docket, and the lawyer's involved in the case. Most lawyers do not want to begin any settlement discussions until their client has reached maximum medical improvement, as determined by the treating physician. In general, however, at least in Texas, once a...

    You should contact your friend or his parents and find out if he has insurance. If so, file a claim on his policy. If he does not have coverage, you should file a claim under the collision portion of your policy. You may not be able to collect since your friend was not a permissive user of the vehicle, but the law in each state differs in that regard. Good luck.

    The short answer is Yes! If you feel like you were not at fault in causing the collision, you should always file on the other party's insurance. Insurance companies use all sorts of tools to set premiums and at-fault collisions are at the top of the list. If you do not feel you were at fault, it is imperative that you defend yourself to your carrier and also make a claim on the other side's insurance so your rates do not go up. Once both insurance companies have compiled all of the...
