8 years ago????? I think statute of limitations may apply here I definitely agree, it is highly unlikely that this could be a valid lawsuit. The one exception could be that laws governing SOL's for litigation action state the action must be filed before the SOL expires. There is a small chance that the suit was filed before the SOL expired and the court is only now setting a date for trial. The best option is for the defendant to obtain legal advice before taking any other action. The majority of attorneys offer free or minimal fee consultations. The American Bar Association has a free nationwide referral service on their website, http://www.abanet.org
No, you would have to redo the loan.
If you were driving someone elses vehicle and involved in an accident whether it be fatal or not then the person who owns the vehicle should have insurance on it and then the accident would be covered on that policy but if it goes over the amount that they have then its possible for yours to kick in and pay any extra.
That is called Manslaughter. Which means to kill someone by accident.
The owner of the vehicle is responsible for whatever it does unless you can prove that someone else was driving.
if you are from 'merica
It's not the owner of the vehicle's fault because if that person got in an accident there is nothing the owner could do. If this happened to you, the person borrowing should pay the bill.
You can have another person cosign for that person. As long as your the primary you wont need her to get her off the lease.
the person responsible for the accident, if the person riding yours caused the accident than he/she is responsible
Pay the loan off and then collect payments from the person you cosigned for.
If a person's name is listed on a title, that person owns the car. If a person merely cosigned the note, that person's name will not be on the title. If you own the car, you certainly can take physical possession of it.
By excluding a person from an auto insurance policy, you are stating that the "excluded" person will not drive the insured vehicle, and that you understand that the "excluded" person is not covered by your insurance in the case of any traffic violation (accident, ticket, etc.). It means there is no coverage available to the excluded person in the case of an accident while driving the said vehicle. There will be NO COVERAGE.
you get finger prints and trace it back to the person
YES, you can include it whether the payments are current or not.
They'll have an accident that is their fault, the insurance company will refuse to pay, the driver of the vehicle and the owner will be sued for everything they own and then some. Or they will be in an accident that is not their fault but the person who owns the vehicle will have their insurance cancelled and will have to pay a fortune for future coverage.
When someone causes an accident and he has no insurance, he is liable to pay for the damages out of his own pocket. Some of the costs may be too much to bear and that is why people are better off having insurance.
Only if they are a joint title holder of the vehicle.
No. The only person who is liable is the person who hit your vehicle.
Unfortunately if you cosigned a loan that means you were willing to pay the loan if the other signer defaults and if that happen they will go by any means to collect that money that you "cosigned/said" you would cover if the other person defaults. I would go after that person that you cosigned for if it has gone this far.
Generally, the person seeking the suit must file in the county in the state in which the defendant is a permanent resident. Jurisdiction is determined by the specifics of the case; for example, if the suit is in regards to a vehicle accident where someone was injured, the suit can be filed in the county and state where the accident occurred.
start making payments
Well in 2 different states that I have lived and worked in the insurance follows the vehicle not the person. If someone is letting you borrow there vehicle then they are accepting responsibility for your actions, therefore the accident would be covered on there policy. Of course I would check with state laws to make sure.
Very little, you will have to pay.
Liability coverage offers coverage for bodily injury and property damage to the other vehicle and passengers who you hit if the accident is your faulty. It does not cover you or anyone in your vehicle.
They are the most common law suit in the US. A tort can evolve out of any accident, particularly vehicle accidents. Anytime someone damages a person or property, you have an action in tort.
