Three wks ago I was hit by a driver running a red light. The at fault guy accepted fault. Police ran tags and truck was insure

Asked about 2 years ago - Lake Jackson, TX

By parents. Now weeks later I find out the guy was an excluded driver. Yet parents stated o me over phone son had permission to drive truck. Was this not negligent of the parents to knowingly allow their son to drive a truck the son is excluded from Ina's a driver on policy. Worse since the truck was insured. He at fault guy did not get a citation. Is it not illegal to drive without insurance. I only have liability on my work van. Now not only am I without work transportation, but can not work overtime for lack of transportation. Now not any of th parents or at fault driver are returning my calls. This is wrong and it seems we have no rights.

    Answered . You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing.
