    If she hit your car and does not give you information, she is committing a criminal act. Get your witness statement and give it to your insurance co and make a claim. They may send an investigator to find out who her insurance company is via her license plate. If you want to be aggressive, file a police report.

    Yes. I do it all the time. When you obtain new information that entitles you to a higher settlement, you should ask for more. Insurance companies have no shame about reducing their offer if they get new information, so why should you. Insurance companies are in business to pay you less than the fair value of their claim, so fight the good fight and get full value.

    Even if you did not make contact (which I assume is what you mean by "directly involved"), if the SUV were able to prove that you caused the accident, you (or your insurance company) could be held liable. On the other hand, you might have the argument that the SUV over-reacted and that the SUV caused the entire accident. The law states: A person must use reasonable care in driving a vehicle. Drivers must keep a lookout for pedestrians, obstacles, and other vehicles. They must also control...

  4. Who is liable for a vet bill if another person's dog ate something of mine on the dog owner's property?

    100%, no ifs, ands or buts.....the dog owner is responsible for his own vet bill. If they contact you, tell them you have already researched the issue and that you are not responsible. It would be a silly waste of time and money for them to try and come after you.

    If your total losses are less than $7500, you should consider small claims court. It is a quick way to resolve your claim. You will go to court between 20 and 70 days after you file your claim. If your back injury and head aches are serious, make sure you see a doctor obtain treatment. You may want to consult a lawyer also. Insurance companies will find any reason at all to refuse total responsibility. They only care about one thing....making money.

    Your damages sound small based on the facts you state. However, the value of the case may be increased depending on WHY the security guard assaulted you. "The Ralph Act," Civil Code sections 51.7 and 52--provides that it is a civil right for a person to be free of violence or its threat against the person or his or her property, because of a person's race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, political affiliation, sex, sexual orientation, age or disability or position in a labor...

    Fred is correct. The state of CA is pouring enormous resources into cracking down on unlicensed drivers and this is one way they do it. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/14/us/14sfcheck.html

    We need a little bit more information. You must have something more serious. For that kind of fine and if you are facing potential jail time, you should consult with a lawyer.

    My colleague is correct. If it was an accident, then it was just an accident and the school is not responsible.
