a car was parked with its tail end in the way of my driveway. I did not realize this and proceeded to back out of my driveway and hit the other car causing a dent. The driver was in the car at the time. She was fine without injury. There was no po...
There's no real time limit to do a driver's report of crash. Police won't likely do it anymore. More importantly, though, is to notify your insurance carrier. If you don't you could be on the hook if she gets it repaired and comes after you for the cost-- even if done at a body shop.See question
I was stopped at a light and was rear ended, i had 3 children in the car at the time. But i didnt have car insurance. I have car damage and a little medical bills from the ER. But the other driver recieved the ticket for the crash. Should i just d...
You may not NEED a lawyer but it is advisable that you get one. What may look like a minor impact at first can be something worse later. There are also insurance technicalities (e.g. if you have health insurance or Medicaid) that a lawyer can help you through. Finally, the insurance company WILL take advantage of your lack of knowledge in the area. I'd recommend finding a lawyer to help you make a claim with the other person's insurance.See question
I was in an accident and my car was totaled, the insurance company paid some, but i still owe on the car loan.
Probably not much. The insurance company (whether yours or the other side's) owes the vehicle's "fair market value," not the loan amount. That is what "gap" coverage would help to cover in a case where the loan was higher than the value of the vehicle.See question
I was hit by another vehicle and the driver took off. I tracked them down and reported them to the police. The driver was charged with Careless Driving, Leaving Scene of Crash Property Damage Only, and No Valid Driver's License. The SAO is tell...
I disagree with that SAO. Either hire an attorney for that issue or, if you are injured and hire an attorney for that, have that attorney go to the SAO or the court to ask that an order of restitution be entered and potentially that it be made a condition of probation.See question
I have bought General mills products and my wife and I have been ill for quite some time and never would have thought it to be flour related. What do you suggest I do to see about starting a suit against General mills? Thank you for your time.
For clarification, when you say "I'll for some time" do you mean that you have been diagnosed with an e. coli infection?See question
How long does a police officer in Florida have to file an accident report? My wife was involved in an accident over 10 days ago and the accident report isn't available because FHP has still not filed the report.
Typically 10 days but FHP can be slower sometimes. If you get to 15 you should call. Try looking it up on buycrash.com.See question
Do attorneys that practice malpractice, practice both legal and medical or are these two different kinds of attorneys? How can I research the cases the attorney has pled to see his track record?
Medical malpractice attorneys sue doctors. Legal malpractice attorneys sue lawyers. There is no different kind of attorney for each of those… Simply different attorneys who focus on different areas of practice.See question
Can these contusions lead to injuries if an X-Ray was only given but then a month later I've done a few test and my results were that I have a beginning of degenerative disc in my back, hernie disc in my back and neck. Tendinitis in my shoulder a...
That depends pretty heavily on what type of doctor you went to. Often times family physicians are reluctant to get involved in motor vehicle accidents and, thus, won't give opinions on causation. You should go to someone who specializes in treating motor vehicle accident injuries who is qualified enough to make the determination and give that person a full history so they can give you a second opinion on causation.See question

That's a complicated question to answer because there's a "technically" answer and a "practically" answer. Assuming your attorney has exhausted all avenues to look for additional insurance coverage, there is technically nothing that REQUIRES you to accept the policy limits only. However, practically, whether you will ever be able to COLLECT more than the available insurance depends on the financial worth of the defendant, how her assets are structured and lots of other very fact-specific details you should discuss with your attorney.See question
While we just started the case, he just filed for bankruptcy. This pretty much means Im not going to get anything and it will probably be discharged at final bankruptcy hearing. Means he gets to not pay me a dime.
Actually, if he had insurance you can still get at least that amount even if he files bankruptcy but you need to get an attorney ASAP so you can file a claim in the bankruptcy case.See question
