    I filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2007 in Michigan my home was included in the bankruptcy , after bankruptcy was concluded that he had some money , so I started paying my mortgage again.

  • 3Am I liable for this car accident?

    Ok so, on Monday I had a minor car accident at Hogarth Roundabout on the A4 in West London heading towards the M4 from Hammersmith. If anyone knows this junction than even better but if not look on google streetwise, because i believe the carriageway is three lanes coming up to the junction and carries on as three lanes past the junction. I was in the far left lane that had written on the road with markings A4 (W) (STRAIGHT ARROW) and A316 Richmond below it with the two outer lanes on the right marked A4 (STRAIGHT ARROW)..so to me that surely means you can be in that lane to follow straight on to the A4 (albeit it does curve however still classed as straight on) or indicate left to take the slip to Richmond. As i left the traffic signals next to the brewery (Fullers) in the left hand lane i came past the exit and continuing for the A4 ( have done this many times without problem) and happened to look in my right mirror quickly at a glance to check my car was still fully in lane (which it was as i saw the white lane marking) when out of nowhere a car was coming towards my lane from the 2nd middle lane and didnt stop hitting me in the drivers side passenger door..causing a dent and paintwork damage along the drivers side of my car. There was no indicators from her what so ever and besides..she was behind me in the overtaking lane coming towards me, she should have seen me! However it was my surprise when we pulled over when she and her irate husband got out of the car and blamed me because i never indicated right!..surely i shouldnt have to if i'm in the correct lane following through?..their excuse was they thought i was taking the A316 Richmond slip on the left but if i did i would have indicated left...i think she never even saw me and drifted towards me either from not seeing me or lack of attention. Either way the damage to my car was very minor..her's came off worse with front damage and she was not willing to accept full liabilty, i offered to show her the road markings but she was having none of it! I wouldn't have put in a claim for my car as damage is minor, however with her not accepting full liabilty, i had no choice but to claim to avoid forking out on my policy for their damage which i believe i never even caused. So what do i do? am i to blame or is she? I understand this is long and in depth but i just wanted to describe the scenario as best i could to get the best possible answers :) Thanks in advance!!

  • 6Am i liable in a no fault accident?

    Yesterday I was driving at night and as soon as I was going through the green light turned yellow . Out of nowhere a lady hit my car and his father said that a no-fault accident . She freaked out and called the police , they could not do anything , so I was wondering if I am responsible and I have to pay ....... although it is a '' no'' fault accident .....

  • 7Who is liable if I have an accident or fall?

    My supervisor wants me to make numerous trips to the grocery store to buy soft drinks , coffee , etc. for the office. It keeps adding more meetings , etc. I said that I'm not comfortable with the increased number of trips now with ice and snow on the ground . Who is responsible if I get in the grocery store ? I decided to start making these trips during the workday - that leaves the office , rather than in the way in driving my personal vehicle .

  • 11Would I be held liable in this car accident?

    I was driving the speed limit on the highway . There was a big truck in front of me and totally blocked my view . I can not see any car in my lane except the back of the truck . Suddenly , the truck changed lanes without a signal, and I immediately saw two cars stopped in the road in front of me . No other cars in front of them . The distance is too short for me to stop. Then I hit the car in front of me and hit the car in front of him . Now my question is: is responsible in this car accident ? They said that in 90 % of cases , I would. But it will be so unfair to me because , apparently , you can not predict what will happen if I can see . Is there anything I can do to protect myself? Thank you. At the same time , I have to buy a new car in no time ...
