Wife was traveling home from school the FedEx driver failed to stop a the stop sign and hit my wife (at this moment we were good) but when the check came back on her license she was suspended please help if you can
You are slinging lots of terms and situations here, but I don't think you truly understand what needs to be done.
Here is my analysis.
1. The Fedex driver is an employee an agent of the company, so whatever he did wrong is their problem. If he went through the stop sign and was negligent, FedEx's insurance company is responsible for repairing your wife's car.
2. If your wife was injured, she should receive immediate medical care and contact a personal injury lawyer. Fedex would be on the hook for this. It is not a DIY project.
3. Suing is pointless unless you cannot come to an agreement to settle on the property damage (and injuries if there are any).
4. Your wife's license is suspended, so you should contact a lawyer to determine how to get her driving privileges restored. Here not having a license should not affect her ability to recover damages. HOWEVER, there are exceptions in insurance policies that exclude unlicensed drivers. So if Fedex balks at paying for her property damage to her car, your own carrier might very well deny the claim because she was not licensed at the time.

I think you are mixing Internet legal research with actually understanding court procedure.
Best bet if a lawyer committed fraud upon the court, would be to seek sanctions.See question
Got a ticket for no insurance, went to court and asked for a continuance, going to court with insurance but not for the day I got pulled over
It won't be dismissed but you'll receive a much smaller fine than if you show up with nothing. Bring it to court and you'll be fine. Good luck.See question

This is a repost. See my early answer. You need a lawyer who handles both federal and state tort cases.See question

You have a proof issue. If it's a federal case, that's far different from a skip and fall in state court. You should talk to another lawyer who handles federal and state tort cases.See question

I agree with much of what Mr. Edens says. Set up a motion or show up on the next court date and ask for time to retain a lawyer. You should also point out that you have requested your file from the lawyer and she has not turned it over to you. That may get the judge to order her to turn it over or appear at court to explain the situation. Maybe not.
If you request your file in writing and the file is not turned over, you should report this to the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission (IARDC--www.iardc.org).
Attorneys have a duty to turn over the client's file when they withdraw.See question
I got a speeding ticket for going exactly 43 on a 35 mph road but the ticket has me going at 50 which sets me up for a bigger violation of driving 15-20 MPH above limit should i fight it
Hold it. Which is it? The ticket says you were going 43 or you were going 50? Would there be a specific violation due to it being a school zone or a specific time of day? Are you sure it is a 35 zone?
Until you clear up these questions, it's really hard to give you advice.See question

Hold on a second!
You make about a half dozen legal conclusions with no facts to support them. How do you know your husband's property is "outside the court's jurisdiction?" How do you know you have rights to his "hidden assets?"
You REALLY need to discuss this with a lawyer. I don't know if it is a property issue, a probate issue, or a divorce, or something else. But please stop playing lawyer and get a real one, or you'll never get anywhere.See question
Three weeks ago, I was delivering a package for my company and got into a car accident. The car that I was driving was given to me by the company that i work for to use for work purposes. I have been paying the insurance for this car as well. Last...
You are in a big jam. You were driving a vehicle for commercial purposes on a private personal policy. So your insurer won't pay for it because you were using your vehicle for commercial use, a common exclusion.
You cannot really force the company's carrier to pay if they tried to cheap out and misclassify the vehicle they owned as a private usage.
I would be careful in providing my own insurance to their carrier too, as you are stuck with the commercial use exclusion.
It may very well be that no insurance covers this loss. You can certainly argue with your company's carrier that you were treated as an employee, were doing their job in their car, and expect to be covered for that, but it's an uphill fight.See question
I requested a Lyft shared ride Saturday and it turned into a nightmare. I was physically assaulted by the second passenger as she was picked up. She first attempted to push me into oncoming traffic and later smacked me in the face as she exited th...
I have written and spoken extensively (see my website, www.hofflawyer.com for more) on the inherent dangers of unregulated systems like Lyft and Uber. While consumer friendly, there are many documented horrors that have occurred.
Lyft will ignore you without a lawyer. You may have a case, but it's a tough one. First of all, you don't really have an injury, so the value of your case is low.--next to nothing. Second, the Lyft drivers are "independent contractors," meaning Lyft will claim they have no oversight of their activities or those of the passengers. Unless there was a way to show a specific warning Lyft had about this passenger's violent ways, I'd think it'll be a tough case to prove. An unprovoked attack is a thing that no one can prevent. At least in theory.
I'd suggest you at least talk to an attorney.
As to your $15, are you really going to sue for that money? It would cost you dozens of times that in court costs. A better bet is to go as high up the ladder as you can and if you get nothing in return, promise to never use the service again. Then follow through. It wouldn't hurt to alert the news media and your legislators of this issue too.See question
