  • Do you have to tell car insurance about a bike accident if there was not claim against you?

    if you have a bike accident but no claim is made against you but you have told your bike insurance company about it, do you still have to tell the car insurance company when you get a quote?

  • Is it illegal to pay your child for doing a regular job by cash-in-hand?

    I know it sounds a bit weird but hear me out. I'm doing ICT A level and we're on the topic of the Heath and Safety at Work Act 1974 and obviously there's something in there to do with making sure employee's have the appropriate insurance etc. The insurance is to make sure they are covered, should an accident happen, then there's tax involved when paying employee's too. I was wondering (since in the eyes of the law it doesn't matter whether you're family or not) that if you had a son, and say you gave him some pocket money for doing some daily jobs, it would technically count as a job. Could you get fined for paying him cash-in-hand instead of doing it formally? I know there's probably something to do with the number of hours, but let's say we ignore that. Could you? (There's no real purpose behind the question, I'm just curious)

  • Should I accept first offer from insurance company for whiplash injury?

    I got a letter from the solicitors my insurance company assigned me to deal with an injury claim after a car accident that was the other persons fault. Finally after 10 months I've got an offer, but it's about 20% less than what the doctor valued my whiplash as. My solicitors seem to imply that I should accept this, and that the only alternative is to start court proceedings, that this would take a long time, and I probably wouldn't get much more anyway. What should I do?

  • Problems with my mother...?

    I'm 25, and my mom is super uninterested in my two kids. She's never babysat for me, when she sees them, she says hi to them, but doesn't hug or kiss them. Even in desperate situations, like when my husband got into a car accident, and broke his hip, totalled our car, and I was 8 1/2 mo pregnant and I had to go to the ER for my husband, she still wouldn't watch my son, bc she "had to work"..... she owns her own business, it's something she totally could've postponed! She has never been there for me (well she used to when I was younger). She gets drunk several times a week, and puts me at the end of her list. Her business, and drinking is more important to her than everything else. So, how do I get to a point where I just grow up and stop "needing" her? I have a wonderful mother-in-law, who goes out of her way just to see her grandkids, who lights up when she sees them, and whose always there when we are in need. I have a great relationship with her, so why isn't that enough for me?

  • How should I handle the car accident I got into, no report was filed?

    I hit the back bumper of a car 5 days ago, she took my phone number, license number, ssn, and called this morning stating it'll be around $1,000 with rental car etc. She stated she hasn't had time yet to bring the car in to get looked at. I feel that is too high, and she probably had a friend in the repair business look at it. We didn't file a report, I might be able to pay it out of pocket if I have to, or should I make an insurance claim? Or refuse to pay?

  • Can the law charge my son for traffic violations?

    Ok my 17 yr old son got in an accident, it was his fault and he totaled his car. They gave him 2 tickets one for following to close and one for traffic signal violation. The car was stoped at a red light and he rear ended the car. So he was not following to close and he did not go through the light. So my question is can they charge him for these violations? And would I do good to fight them in court or get a lawyer? Thanks in advance for any advice!

  • Is a police report necessary during a car accident if you need to claim it on the insurance?

  • Car Accident Question?

  • If i take out a short term car insurance cover (28 days) Will I gain 1 years NCB?

    I had an accident 6 weeks after I renewed my car insurance, if I was to get a short term cover (from norwich union etc..) for 2 lots of 28 days (renewing it after the first 28 days) would I then gain 1 years NCB? The only reason i'm asking is because the cost of renewal last year was £450, this years renewal the cheapest I found was £1300!!!

  • Who is at fault in this car crash scenario?

    I was making a left turn to go into the college campus.I was traveling SOUTH as I approached the solid green light, and I waited for ~ 3-4 minutes until traffic cleared. I see a purple pt cruiser enter the campus through a RIGHT TURN ONLY lane and it is coming from the south (so the direction its headed in, is north), behind it approximately 15-20 feet is a honda accord that is in the TURN ONLY LANE as well and it looked as if it was going to turn into the school. It was too close to the intersection to change lanes so i start entering the turn. the honda accord hit the right side of my car at where the front wheel is and smashed the wheel into the body of the car. the police arrogantly told me i was at fault and did not look around to check the possible speed or anything. the other driver claimed that the speed they were traveling in was 40 mph. mind you my whole right front side was completely destroyed and my car is totaled from the impact. the police looked up the wrong tag and told me that this tag was not belonging to my car- (she typed in the wrong characters.) Then she made out the ticket to my father who is the one who owns the vehicle; but he was not in the accident, he was at work. i was put down as fault, but i do not see how if the other driver was going straight on a turn only lane and trying to change at the intersection it is my fault. who would be at fault if it was taken to court? thank you. there were no witnesses also..

  • Can a housewife claim loss of income in a car accident claim?

  • Can I sue after a car accident causing totalled vehicle - in ontario?

    Yesterday I was involved in an accident, and I want to know if we can sue the guy who hit us? btw, we are in Ontario. We were stopped at a red light(with a big back up of cars), and a huge like off roading monster truck was speeding along and didn't break at all, and crashed into the back of us,and we hit another suv infront of us. My van was totalled. Insurance will only give us the value it is at right now for the van, which is only 2 years old, but they no longer make these vans. Is it possible to sue for this loss in money? We cant really afford to pay another 20k, to upgrade to the vehicle we lost. My mom (which was driving) also does daycare at our home, and won't be able to provide, due to pain,etc it has caused, which is our only income in the house. We weren't in much pain yesterday, but now it isn't possible for us to get even dressed alone. We know we have whip lash, but going for xrays etc. Can we sue if there is something medically wrong? The guy who hit us, was maybe early early 20's, and probably wont have all that much money,but is it possible to get what we need to survive at least? Thanks in advance
