First depending on where the accident happened and what kind of hit and run--were the police involved. Is there anything else in the report that you may not know of. Such as "did anyone call in any information as it happened or after it happened. Are there any stores, gas stations, banks etc. in the area--go around to each one and see if anyone remembers seeing the accident. Leave some flyers with a phone number to call with information at this places of business if the owner/manager will let you. Post big enough notices on poles or staked into the ground by the site. Are there any video cameras in any of the places that may have recorded the accident, and lastly, place a notice in the paper asking anyone to call if they saw something. Hopefully this might help--Good luck
If that driver was found at fault, then usually it would.
The actual driver. Unfortunately, if the driver is your kid, and you're adding your kid to your insurance policy, it could affect your rates.
It is possible that the insurance rate would go up if a permitted driver has an accident. Usually, raising insurance rates is not an individual decision.
Some states are different, but in Michigan, the company who insured the car is responsible. They can then go after the uninsured driver Some states are different, but in Michigan the company who insured the car is responsible. They can then go after the driver .
Yes, the general idea of insurance is that your rates go up when you cause an accident and they are forced to pay out.
The liability, or fault-factor in an accident has nothing to do with whether or not a driver was licensed. The liability in an accident at an uncontrolled intersection can be shared. Several factors go into a case like that & would need to be fully investigated to determine.
your choice is to go to court and sue
That depends how costly the accident was. If the other driver is uninsured I doubt anything. But if everything is legit and you go get an estimate and your insurance adjuster will discuss that for you.
If it was you that fell asleep, you should go to the police before the police come to you.
Yes. See an attorney, before they sue you.
Yes, but bear in mind that a person (driver) is not automatically liable just because there was an accident There must be actual injury and or damages and the driver must be determined "At Fault" for the accident. Otherwise there is nothing for them to be liable for.
as long as niece had permission, it goes against owners insurance. a case could be made to go after legal driver supposedly supervising, but most states go through the veh first, then the driver.
Usually if an accident is determined not to be the insured's fault, then their insurance rates will not rise as the insurance company did not lose any money from covering the driver involved in the accident. If the accident is determined as being inconclusive, the rates may rise some, to adjust for the amount of money the insurance company lost in the accident.
Technically, You are responsible for the car because the car insurance is in your name and not theirs. You can also go to court and they will investigate to see who should pay for accidental damages on the car but the Judge can also make the driver pay your cars insurance. It can go either way you or them depending on evidence of the accident.
If the driver, want to go faster than 30 miles per hour, the driver will be using gasoline. If the driver want to save money, he or she will drive less than 30 miles per hour. Now the driver will not be speeding so he or she won't have car accident.
Auto accident attorneys represent individuals involved in car accidents. These attorneys can represent plaintiffs or defendants and may be hired by a driver’s insurance company to represent the driver or the insurance company. Plaintiffs’ automobile accident lawyers are available for those that have suffered injuries in a car wreck. The lawyers will consider the case and if there is a potential lawsuit. If so, auto accident attorneys will notify the other party or parties in the wreck. The case may never go to court and the auto accident attorneys may work out a settlement that all involved parties agree to. Defense lawyers for car accidents will assist parties that are being sued after an auto accident. An auto accident attorney that works on the defense side will attempt to show that there was no fault on the part of the driver he or she is representing or try to negotiate a lower amount that that person will have to pay for the accident and any injuries. An auto accident attorney may be retained or hired by an insurance company. Car insurance companies will hire attorneys on behalf of their clients as the attorneys will help reduce the liability costs that the insurance company may have to bear after an accident. The auto accident attorney does this by working in a similar capacity as he or she would as a defense attorney. The aim is to settle for an acceptable amount or demonstrate that there was little or no fault on the driver being sued. Additionally, an insurance company’s auto accident attorney may work to recover costs from another driver or insurance company. The auto accident attorney functions like an attorney for a plaintiff. The car accident lawyer pursues payment of costs incurred by the insurance company in covering damage or injury suffered by the driver. As a result, the driver that was not at fault gets all repair costs paid for, but the insurance company recovers that money from the driver that was at fault without the driver without fault having to wait for a settlement.
Yes, but the rates will probably go up. Loaning a vehicle to an unlicenced driver is risky behavior that insurance companies don't generallly like.
One of my family members was hit by a driver who carried insurance but was an "excluded" driver on the policy of the car she was driving. After talking to the other person's insurance company, an excluded driver is essentially equivalent to an uninsured motorist. That means that his/her insurance company will not represent them and that, if they are liable for the accident, your insurance company can go after them personally for the damages.
The best places to go for accident claim advice will depend on the type of accident. For car accidents there are several attorneys who specialize in accident claims.
We MUST follow the traffic rules as , we may lose our loved ones when one happens to be involved in a accident. And , we should not anyhow cross the road and jay-walk as , if a driver cannot stop to avoid hitting you , he/she might cause themself an accident while trying to avoid your existence. This will make the innocent driver go to jail for you!
Yes it does. Insurance companies are in business to make money and if somebody has a proven driving record of being unsafe, the policy will cost more. As he proves to be a safer driver, his premiums will go down.
Generally speaking, no. However, in any moving incident/violation, your driving record is checked. If it turns out that you have a few past speeding tickets, and maybe another previous accident or two where you were not at fault, the insurance company may choose to tag you as a high-risk driver and increase your premium. On the other hand, if you are a driver with a spotless record, your rates will probably not go up in the event of an accident where you are not at fault.
Your question is extremely confusing. Whose car is registered in New York? Whose car lacks insurance? Whose car caused the accident? Who was driving the car? All of that may or may not be relevant. In Florida the person who caused the accident is usually responsible for property damage whether or not he or she has car insurance. It does not matter where the car is registered. In Florida, people go after both the driver and registered owner. The driver caused the accident and the registered owner gave the driver permission to drive the vehicle. Collecting one cent is frequently a different matter.
Yes; children should not tell the driver where she should go. Do not tell the driver to go to school if he or she wants to go to a grocery store. Also, do not tell a driver how he or she should go by telling them what roads to take.
