  • Do you drive a car with the Air Bag light on?

    Your modern car records how many times you drive it with the light on? If you get into an accident and a passenger is hurt , he can sue and get the information from the cars computer that you drove it "x" times knowing it was unsafe and never fixed it, thus winning with a law suit with slam dunk? If the person dies you may also incur criminal charges!

  • I rear ended a car going less then 15mph, and now the driver claims he is hurt. What should I do?

    I rear ended this guy who was driving a big Toyota Land cruiser. I was going less 15MPH and hit the metal part where you tow trailers. Police came and issued me a citation for driving too close. Now my adjuster called me and said that the other driver went to the emergency room and filed a claim. I was like are F***king kidding me?? I hit that dude going less than 15mph and he was in big SUV. During the whole time he walking around and talking on the cell phone. The officers asked him "are you hurt" he was like no "I'm fine". There was no damage to his car and my car the front bumper and hood got dented. Basically a fender bender accident. I'm soo freaking pissed off!! So what can i do? thanks

  • 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!

Than he calls me saying the damages is going to be $2,500 and i said what i told him can you come over to line up the cars and he started saying what are you trying to say you didn't hit my car well i could call the polices.

  • Antbody know anything about injury car accident cases, lawyers etc?

    I was injured in car accident, 100% other huys fault. Missed several months of work. Had to borrow to keep roof over my head, and after seven months, the lawyer told me today that we could settle for 6,000.00, with 2800.00 in my pocket. Seemed low to me.He said settlements are lower these days. Even though I saw their chiro for 60 days, for some reason the doctor reported me out of word only 17 days. I can only shake my head at that. Any legal wizs out there? Thanks

  • Traffic Law Question?

    Can I get sued or in trouble for driving away from a minor accident I did not know I iniated. I was pulling out of a parking spot and i slightly scratched a man's van. I had no idea I actually scratched the van so I drove down to the next block. I then saw the van follow me and the man got out and said I hit him. I pulled over and his car has a slight white mark and so did mine from the apparent point where they scraped against each other. He also said i caused a minor dent from above the white mark which would have been impossible cause of where my car was scratched. I explained that to him and he didnt argue the point back. His mark on his car came out pretty much when I went to rub it out. I said I am a new driver and apologized repeatedly. He then said it was ok and I should be careful and then he drove away. Could I get in any trouble for this?

  • My wife was in a car accident last night that was not her fault. Please help me understand this?

    She went to Urgent Care last night to get x-rayed. Everything seemed to be OK, she may go back for 1 or 2 follow ups if she feels worse, but seems OK. State Farm insurance, which is the insurance of the guy who hit my wife, called her today, asked about the accident, and if she received medical attention. She said she did and that she may go for a follow up appointment, or something more if the pain worsened. The agent said, "OK, call me at this number when you want a settlement." What does that mean? Settlement to pay the bills? Settlement for time lost at work (at least one day)? Settlement for extra like pain and suffering? Settlement for the car (which was totalled)? Or a settlement for ALL of these things? I mean, what do we do? give them receipts? Give them an estimate of damages plus a little extra for pain and suffering? I just don't know what that meant? Please help.

  • Help me! i will get screwed by insurance company?

    i just got into an accident. a truck ran a red and slammed into the side of my car. before the police came he apologized several times and claimed that he tried to stop but couldn't because roads were wet. no witnesses stuck around and i think im an going to get royally screwed by this financially because i think i will have to pay for these repairs myself, when it was clearly the other man's fault.
