  • What If I got into an uninsured accident?

    I'm not under the insurance policy but the car is insured by parents with Farmers Insurance. Both the other driver and I were backing out when we hit each other, but I had a witness saying I backed out first and I clearly was further backed than them, who will be at fault and will this affect insurance rates?

  • Will I be found automatically GUILTY because of lack of insurance at the time of a minor accident?

    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?

  • South Carolina Auto Insurance Law?

    A couple of weeks ago somebody hit my parked car in the parking lot of a Best Buy store. Luckily, I walked out of the store just at the perfect time to catch him in the act. Now I am working with his insurance company, but they are telling me a couple of things that don't really sound right to me... can somebody verify? a.) South Carolina law states that used parts can be used to fix my car, as long as they are in "like-new" condition, and are not older than my vehicle. b.) I must get my car fixed; I am not allowed to simply take the check. c.) I must get my car fixed where they tell me to get it fixed. Just some details, I have a New York State license and car, the accident happened in South Carolina with a South Carolina driver. Can somebody help me out here?

  • How do I collect out of pocket expenses as a result of an auto accident?

    I was involved in an auto accident last year. I was not at fault, and the other driver was issued a summons for reckless driving and causing of the accident. He was found guilty. We both have the same insurance company. My insurance company paid for my car to be fixed and I was reimbursed my deductible. However, I have had other medical expenses that were not completely covered by my car insurance or personal medical insurance. I live in New Jersey. Does anyone know how do I go about collecting the money that I personnaly have to pay the doctors and hospital? Especially since the other driver was found guilty in court to be at fault. Do I have to see an attorney? Do I have to sue? Thanks for any help you can give me.

  • Car Accident + Headache?

    I just got in a car accident eariler today and totalled my car. Iv been so stressed, crying for hours, and have had the hugest migrane. The only injury I have is a bruise on my knee. I didnt go to the hospital and my head is pounding right now. Im assuming its because of the stress (I live in a totally different state from family and friends, my husband is deployed, and I didnt have collision insurance). I want to try to fall asleep and see how I feel in the morning but my mother-in-law said I might have internal bleeding in my head and I might not wake up if I go to sleep. Do you think its true? Calling 911 to go to the hospital is ganna be expensive and I dont really know anyone who would take me to the hospital on base. Should I take a cab or do you think I will be fine?

  • Auto accident involving bicyclist.. Fault? Insurance? Etc.?

    Hi, A friend of mine was borrowing my car for work. She was driving down the street at approx 35 mph (posted speed limit in that area is either 35-40). A young man on a bicycle was riding across the street and hit the back driver side of the car. The police made a report but the officer told her since it was less than 500 in damage did not HAVE to be reported. The guy on the bicycle told her and the cop he was trying to make it even though he seen the traffic coming. He also said it happened to him once before. A witness stated that she did have the green light to go. Ambulance arrived but the bicyclist told them that he was fine and just had a couple scrapes from hitting the ground. They stated that his bike came in contact with the car, then he fell to the ground; resulting in scrapes on elbow and forehead. Some of the facts are; It was night time (dark out). The guy did NOT have lights on his bicycle (as req by law in CA on bicycles at night). The guy was NOT in the crosswalk. The speed limit on that street is either 35 or 40. He admitted that he seen her coming but was trying to make it before oncoming traffic came. Can't really think of anything else to write.. But I am curious if I am REQUIRED to report this to the auto insurance? The officer said since the guy said he wasnt injured and also the damage was less than 500 that I did not have to. Just wanted to see what anyone else's opinion is on this situation? Also, by the facts listed... Does it seem like it would be found at her fault or the bicyclist fault? Thanks in advance!

  • Kentucky laws regarding Auto Accidents?

    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.

I live in WA, most of my debt was in CA if that makes a difference. Please serious answers only in terms I can understand!
