A friend of mine just got into a little fender bender. Problem is she is 19 years old and she drives a range rover. She swerved into the other lane to avoid hitting cones/other objects that signified the lane was closed. The man she barely hit was an asian man who barely spoke english who drove a piece of crap honda. He got out of his car holding his head and complained to the police that his head won't stop hurting, etc. He went to the hospital and the police told my friend they don't even know why he went because the wreck was not that bad AT ALL. Can he seriously sue her?
I had someone riding a bicycle run into the side of my car. He seemed fine and his bicycle was fine too.... We exchanged Names, Addresses &Phone Numbers. However, at the time I did not have auto insurance (but do now), but i never disclosed this fact. Now 10 months later, i am getting sued for $160,000 ($150K of it is for pain &suffering)! The guy who served me said don't worry, just forward the paperwork to your insurance company. There is a set court date in March. My Question is? When the Judge finds out that I didn't have insurance - will I automatically be found guilty?
Seat belt laws. Motorcycle helmet laws. Speeding. Not stopping COMPLETELY at a stop sign. Smoking within <25 ft of a building entrance in some areas. These are just a couple of the numerous victimless "crimes" on the books. They all carry fines. What if the person who is "charged" with these "crimes" doesn't pay the ransom? They're thrown in a cage. The government is either: A - protecting life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness OR B - extorting more money to fund their ever growing monstrosity Is this ethical?

Today my hubby and I were in an accident, the lady pulled out blindly in front of us, causing us to hit her. She pulled out from the right side of the road, across one lane of traffic, into the turning lane, where we had just moved over to turn left in to a school. The driver of the truck(big truck) she pulled across in front of, stated to the police that even he did not see her till she was in front of him. This woman had no tags and no insurance, (both are required in ky) We had only mi coverage with no uninsured/ under insured coverage. We speak to the atty in the morning, but I am hoping to find laws concerning this...Can you point me in the right direction? Oh, and hubby sustained a head injury, 9cm long that required 11 staples. As well as messing up the vehicle I use to deliver in for work.

Auto accident 2008. post traumatic stress disorder, had one surgery and may need another. lost job in 2008 shortly after and have not been able to find another who will keep an injured worker because my attendance at work at my last job was crap cause the injury kept me home from work many days a week. because i lost my job i couldn't pay bills therefore i had to move back home. I loved my job i worked with the mentally handicapped and saw myself working there for as long as i could. I have tried all kinds of physical therapy, injections,spine rehab and finally the last surgery gave me a little relief. i have talked to a lawyer. He says that he can only ask for $100,000 and no continuing medical coverage. I am only 22 years old. not looking for a way to make a buck. In school have a daughter, husband who makes good money and a house. But the medical expenses are much to high for us to pay over a lifetime and i want to get better no matter what it takes i want to be normal again and have my own job and be able to play with my daughter and not be in pain 24/7.I'd also like to get in my car and not start thinking this is going to be the day someone hits me and i won't be so lucky to keep my life. 100000 isn't going to even begin to pay for life-long pain and suffering and all the surgeries it could take to fix my back if they in fact fix it at all. What can i do to get my lawyer to try for more he is actually my second lawyer. After lawyer fees and all that jazz i'd only end up with maybe half. help?!?!?
I mean auto insurance. Firstly its the LAW to have auto-insurance and secondly, if you get in an accident and **** HAPPENS and no you are not immune, then you are ******. You are left to foot the bill of fixing the car or buying a new one if the wreck was that bad. Next health insurance. I mean yes its expensive. But if you have no insurance, then something happens and you end up in the hospital, and once again **** happens. And I said the s-word aloud and I'm sorry....then you're in the ER, and once you get out, your hospital bill comes to you and you owe thousands and thousands of dollars. Accidents happen. So shell out your money and get the protection you need now...because accidents happen. Why would you put yourself through all this mess?

The defendant in this mock trial is a large beverage company, the plaintiff is an up and coming star, one day this soon to be star is driving on the highway and cargo from this beverage truck falls on the highway causing the plaintiff to swerve and sustain permanent disfigurement to his face (he was not wearing a helmet). While in the hospital his mouth is wired so it can heal, the plaintiff decides to loosen the wires in his mouth, causing further injury to himself. What are possible trial strategies I could use if I was representing the defendants side?

My friend was hit by a drunk driver in California. Her airbag deployed causing her to lose vision in her left eye. If was a low speed accident. The car was an older model. It was a 1997 Toyota. I do not know the exact model. She is a Mexican citizen visiting California legally. She is 26 years old. A really beautiful girl. She hired a lawyer, but the lawyer just took a fee and made sure that the insurance of the person driving the other car paid for my friend's medical bills. But she is still blind in her left eye. Completely. I have recommended that she sue the insurance company and the girl who was driving the other car. The other driver comes from an affluent family. She was intoxicated. My friend did not know what to do. Really, and now she is blind and works in an office here in Mexico. She received no compensation for damages. Nothing. It was in Orange County, California. What can she do?
I was unlucky enough to get into an accident without having any bodily harm, so no attorney will take my case. The insurance company (Travelers Auto Casualty) denied my claim wrongfully (ruled against the police report completely) because NC has a rule that you can no longer sue the govt agencies. Even my insurance carrier says Travelers is taking advantage of the NC Tort Reform Act. That law says I can no longer sue the agency for my accident. I now have to take it though arbitration for roughly a year. But, my question: Is it possible to just sue the driver, even though his insurance carrier info says NC Dept of Corrections?
I am in the process of trying to get s default judgment against me vacated/set aside. It was a rental property issue, not an auto accident or credit card debt. I am a single parent, currently unemployed and have no assets, not even a car at this point in time. Obviously, no money for a lawyer. I go to court in a few days for the discovery of assets hearing. If I end up filing bankruptcy, will this judgment be part of the relief? I read somewhere on this forum that bankruptcy will not discharge civil judgments. Also - I will not get put in jail when I got to court and cannot pay this judgment, will I? Thank you for your time and advice!
If the woman drivng the car would have stayed at the scene of the accident, she would have been arrested and lost her children. I did not think I was seriously injured, so we both left the scene before the police arrived. Before we left, we made the agreement that if I DID need medical treatment, she would take responsibility. It turned out that I sustained a back injury that I need medical attention for. I contacted the woman about this, and now she refuses to take hold up to her promise.since I have physical proof of the accident (her car was damaged and my bicycle still has paint from her car on it, plus I have a witness to the incident), will I be able to legally get her to take responsibility for this (pay for the hospital visit, medications, and surgery if it is needed)?
